Coach Carr would always remind us that each day you are either getting better or getting worse. What you did yesterday and what you plan to do in the new year means nothing for today. So winning is all about what you accomplish today.
Today was different....I was a Victor. I took one step up the hill. It wasn't huge, but it was in the right direction. I think sometimes I focus too much on how big a step I am taking rather than realizing that I am on the hill and heading up. So it's about having a lot of grace in this journey.
To dominate MM, it's critical that we keep our bodies in the best physical condition. We already have a lot of strikes against us with a disease that compromises the immune system and aggressive chemotherapy that also lowers the immune system, and for those of us who have transplanted once or twice, our years of built up resistance and immunity has been taken from us.
I encourage everyone to take a step in the right direction Today. Don't focus on how big of a step or how big of a hill you have to climb. Pick up your knee, lean forward and dominate that first step. Tomorrow, hit the repeat button, but let's not get too far ahead of ourselves.
