I Identify with…

I Identify with…

Who am I?  What am I trying to prove?  Where am I going?  Who is going with me?

You are judged by lots of criteria in life, most of it is subjective because it is our peers who judge us.  One of the things that people look at is your associates. Who do you hang with, what are they like, are they likable?  I hang with Crossfitters, people involved with PTA and scouts, and people who are on the Keep Pearland Beautiful Board.  BUT The person I am most proud to hang with is David Watson.  His strength, perseverance and diligence motivate me to keep trying to attain my goals.  Shawn’s article in the last newsletter brought tears to our eyes.  If you think that our coaches aren’t watching us, think again.  They know us better than you might think.

David has been showing up at the box more often lately and will continue to do this.  He wants people to know that having a stroke is not the end.  That you can work hard to get back, and he doesn’t know how far he will come back but he will keep working for it.  He has been impressed with how everyone is reacting to him and the nice things they say.  Nicole said, “you give me goosebumps watching you workout.”  Jill and Chad both said very similar things – that they were inspired to work harder by seeing him.  You don’t know how good that makes David feel!  These are only a few of the wonderful things that people around our box have said.

If you are new to the box introduce yourself to David, listen carefully because he has aphasia.  He has been learning to talk again.  Just a few days ago he said to me, “people think I am retarded because I can’t talk right. ” I don’t know if that is true, but I know for a fact that he is just as intelligent.  So, don’t be afraid, talk to him please!

WOD “Elizabeth”  So, how did she treat you?  make sure you are journaling… we will add photo if someone takes one today :-)

  1. You just brought me to tears.. I watch David everytime he is the box, he brings me to tears everytime. His strength and will makes us all strong. I lost three of my four grandparents to strokes (not saying yall are that old!!) and it moves me to see him keep going. What an amazing family. Watching Ross and Jon with David yesterday makes my heart smile. All of you are an inspiration! We love you guys.

  2. Saw David yesterday and I was so glad he was there and working out hard… Next to me. Yes David I was watching your swings and squats, perfect form! Keep it up

  3. I was really happy to see David at the box! Its very encouraging to me and I’m very happy that he is progressing so well.
