Ian Dawe – Words to Live by – Chapter 20


“living in the past is not living up to our potential” – unknown.

It takes a long time for a man to admit how fragile he truly is. I thought that by forcing myself to the gym that I would be able to physically conquer my spiritual fragility.

I was wrong.

After a short visit with my uncle something clicked. I left the hospital knowing that things were going to be different. This time, I actually believed it.

For the first time in months, I felt that I needed to be in the gym. I started lifting weights and sprinting again. I also decided to shave my beard.

What had started as a tribute to my friend had become a painful reminder of his passing. The quote I included above prompted me to shave it.

I am back in the gym preparing for my return to the ring sometime in the near future. As soon as everything is finalized I will share it with you.

I will leave you with a quote Evan had shared with me.

“live well, laugh often, love much”
