Daily Mo Update
Maybe it’s because I feel it makes me look scarier as a fighter than my normal facial hair style, but I’m really starting to like this mustache. I may keep it after Movember.
Today was one of those days where my body got beat to hell in training and I found myself starting to get negative about it. It was probably the hardest time I’ve had this month trying to stay positive. I just kept telling myself, “cut it out. Get it out of your head, Keith.” It didn’t really do the trick this time though. What knocked me out of the negativity was when my senseii started talking to me about an upcoming fight I might participate in. Normally, feeling as bad as I did, this would make things worse, but something was different this time. Even though I feel like I have a ways to go before I’m truly ready to step into the ring, his vote of confidence in me and the light of an upcoming goal put my mind at ease. I will work as hard as I can to get where I need to be, and I trust that my coach has my back. Nothing else mattered. My point is, in this particular instance, it was the goal and the support of my mentors which cleared the beginnings of a would be depressing evening. Try it out for yourselves. Come up with something you can pour your heart and soul into and set a short term goal. When things get tough, remind yourself that you’re doing your best and you will be as ready as you can be by the time you need to be. Have faith that you will progress exactly how you need to and don’t give up.

Daily Mo Update
The terror in this picture is due to a lack of sleep and a bright light. It’s a nice Saturday morning. I have been on an uphill climb the past few weeks, besides a few bumps in the road. The mo, it’s looking gooood. With this week, comes a close shave to clean it all up 😉
Staying motivated with depression is the hardest thing for me most days. Keeping my ambitious attitude buoyant in this turbulent sea of depression leaves me drained and often with not even enough energy to do the things I enjoy. I find being mindful is the best strategy of late to deal with this. Keeping myself mindful of my surroundings and my place in life helps to center me and helps me to remember what’s really important. Sometimes it melts away the depression all together, if just for a moment; and, other times it just helps a little —- but it always helps!
