What does it mean to be a champion? Does it mean you are better then someone? Does it mean you are better then everyone? If so, other then things that feed your ego what does that matter? Will it eventually let us down? For my whole life i wanted to be a world champion. It never happened. What’s the meaning of that?

A fanart commission I drew for a client.. The moving castle, the mysterious castle, magical castle and yeah famous Howl's castle, that is.. It's more like a challenge to me to draw a castle/mecha on brown paper. (The one I picked absorbs ink pretty much)

Anyways, it turned out good somehow and it's my pleasure to see the client loved it.. BOOOMMMMM YEAHHH again!

How well do you know your shadow? We are all made up of lightness and darkness. Polarity plays a huge part in the balance of our outer world and the same goes for our inner world. Know your shadow for it has many answers and only illuminates your light even more. #shadow #shadowwork #knowyourdarkness #polarity #innershadow #magic

This is what my winter was all about, getting real comfortable in my own inner darkness, at times wondering if I would ever come out.
.
But here I am, a little more ready to serve myself, my loved once, the amazing women of this world and the Light!
.
Life will always be a cyclical journey from darkness to light, death to birth, winter to summer, mensuration to ovulation, from internal growth to external action.... They need each other, both stats of being holds magic! 🧙‍♀️

Discover the strengths in your darkness...it's an integral part of you as is your light. You cannot realize your fullest, most authentic self until you acknowledge, understand and know ALL of you, including your shadow. Don't be afraid of her...for in her lies your true power ✨💖🖤💜💛

We don’t always get the results we want. What comes to my is what the great Georges St-Pierre said on Joe Rogan podcast, “Nobody cares man.” It’s important to us and us alone.

First time drawing a horse as well as a unicorn in my entire career life.. Took me few days to learn drawing horse, deer and other horse-family with hooves to make this unicorn figure out, for a commission. I really had a lot of fun (even though I was in the middle of hard times) drawing such mythical creature from many people's dream.. And yes wings are my obsession and never get tired of drawing them.. It's done on 15" 22" Canson watercolor paper (rear) as usual.

"Knowing your own darkness is the best method for dealing with the darkness's of other people. One does not become enlightened by imagining figures of light, but by making the darkness conscious. The most terrifying thing is to accept oneself completely. Your visions will become clear only when you can look into your own heart. Who looks outside, dreams; who looks inside, awakes.”

'I'm all out of faith, this is how I feel
I'm cold and I am shamed
Lying naked on the floor
Illusion never changed
Into something real
I'm wide awake and I can see the perfect sky is torn
You're a little late
I'm already torn'

This one he gets to keep!! They played games where scores were kept. They lost to the same team 2x in the regular season and then beat them in the championship game of the playoffs. Let our children fail so they can figure out how to succeed!!!!#bpp #dbab #rideordie

Went up to Fargo to do a seminar at my friends George and Sarah Andersch school. I’m aware that I’m not a world champion so I’ve been thinking a lot about what it is that i will bring to the table that will make me stand out. What i hope a brought was a way to live a great life and strength a strong community, and obviously a little bjj too 😂. Hope everyone enjoyed, i know i did!!!! #bpp #dbab #rideordie

Embracing your dark side takes a lot of courage, love, and forgiveness. For as much as we try to stay upbeat, positive, we all have this dark side that manifests itself in lots of different ways. -
.

I always thought the way to deal with it was to crush her, try to forget she existed, replace her with affirmations and positivity. But today it occurred to me while working on an exercise from Banishing Your Inner Critic, she IS part of me and ALWAYS will be. 😒 So maybe it’s time to embrace her, in a new way. Our dark side will always be part of who we are but that doesn’t mean they get to run the show!!!! Nope, we CAN however, put them to good work and give them other assignments. -
.

My dark side, she is trainable!! Putting her in her place though, won’t be easy. Realizing she’s been trying desperately to protect me from pain, rejection, humiliation, disappointment, and from doing stupid things made me feel compassion for her, even sad that it’s time for her to go. She has been working overtime for so many years, I know she won’t go quietly, and that’s ok. I have found other purposes for her, so she can stick around but just not front and center anymore. -
.

I just felt like I needed to put this out here today. It was a very, very emotional exercise for me-even made me cry-which my kids will try to tell you I never do. 😏 I know I’m not the only one working through this stuff, and if this helps one person feel better or know they are not alone, it’s served it’s purpose. Love and forgiveness (including self forgiveness) always win! 💕💕💕

Another great weekend of competition with the team!! Everyone thinks they want to be a champion. However, you have to pay the bill before you get the meal. Most people won’t do this. It’s too difficult and there are no guarantees. So what do we do? I say pay the bill, and if you’re chasing a worthy cause and have a truly selfless and holistic attitude about it, whatever meal you end up eating will be delicious!!!
“Victory is reserved for those willing to pay its price.” Sun Tzu. #rideordie #dbab

I get the pleasure to go out and compete tonight. Nobody tells stories about the shit we didn’t do. Let’s go do some shit!!! “Fighting is the best thing a man can have in his soul” @renzograciebjj #dbab #rideordie

In order to bring light to others, we must first become deeply familiar with our own darkness and light. It takes a tremendous amount of WORK to become even slightly skilled at transforming the energies of light, dark, love, fear, suffering and pleasure.
"You can't transmit something you haven't got."
I am absolutely committed to doing the work, and carrying the message of hope and comfort to others. It's my higher purpose. Everything I have gone through has served that purpose. I am so grateful for this life and the opportunity to overcome struggles in order to grow in my ability to be of service to others.
