CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
Eli’s last tweet before he was killed was “Never Take Anything for Granted”. Those are extremely powerful words. I take so much for granted. Even today, I was watching a video of my boys from “this day, 4 years ago” and it’s priceless to me. At the time it was just a simple video of the boys playing in the house like they do every day, but now, looking back at how much they’ve grown over the last 4 years and just how fast it happened, it truly makes me realize how much I take for granted.
Grab your wife and kids and squeeze them tight. Love on them. Tell them how much they mean to you. Soak up every minute.
It is difficult to push yourself to your perceived maximum. Few people enjoy the pain that comes at that point. It helps me to focus on the future to where I’ll be if I continue pushing. Pain truly is temporary.
