June 29-July 5th
I traveled to Destin, Florida with my girlfriend, Emily Summers, and her family for a week, June 28-July 5. We had an amazing time! We swam, boated, snorkeled, and relaxed all week long. However, it was not all play. If you think I have a strong passion… Well Emily has twice the passion for the things she cares about and I’m blessed enough to be one the those things. All week long she would stand me up and have me do exercises in the pool, never letting me have a day off! She knows how badly I want to get stronger and to walk across the stage to get my diploma. Therefore, she is constantly pushing me to do more even when I do not always feel like doing something. I deeply appreciate her enthusiasm to better myself and I only wish that we would have met sooner!
I think it is so important to surround yourself with people who truly care about you and want the best for you. Having strong influences in your life are so key to success and happiness. When you are around people who are always encouraging and pushing you is how you will be able to reach your full potential. When someone can see more in you than what you can see in yourself… that is something special. I’m fortunate enough to have a family and friends who are always positive influences on me. Negative people will always have an excuse, a complaint, and not want to build other people up. It is important to surround yourself with people who want to see you succeed.
Having someone like Emily in my life has definitely made me a better and stronger person.
