We’ve all had those days where we’re pretty sure we’re going to die alone. Today was one of those days for me. Dating in 2010 is hard enough, now add on that I run my own gym that keeps me busy before and after most peoples work days, oh and weekends, plus I train to compete in a crazy sport that most men don’t know about and top it off with I eat clean and don’t drink. Yup….I’m gonna die alone. ha!
In all seriousness though it is tough to realize the sacrifices you make to follow your dream. You sacrifice your free time for others. You sacrifice your social life to train. You sacrifice any hope dating since most 28 year old men I meet are still in the bachelor phase (I can party every weekend and get any girl I want) which I left behind years ago.
And I use the word sacrafice, and I’m sure many of you are thinking that’s a bad thing. Sometimes sacrifice can be good. Look what has come from my sacrifice….my own business which I love, the ability to compete and train in a sport I love and fitting in a size two jean is never a sacrifice.
Ok….so I don’t see my friends every weekend, but they all know that I love them dearly and that they all are still very important to me. And as dying alone, I’m not that worried about it. It’ll happen when it’s supposed to happen and until it does I’m going to continue to live my life. After all, life happens when you least expect it.
