We are not the sum of our mistakes, but an opportunity to take them and make something more precious…

A wise man once told me that life is a tirade of challenges & ups & downs. This will pass… what matters is that you stay true to who you really are & hold in your heart & mind the things that are most important to you. Don’t ever change because you are amazing just the way you are. Your compassion & openness make u who u are, & there are so many people who do appreciate that. U are u, expect respect for that & don’t accept anything less!

It has taken me a long time and many experiences to understand his words, and more importantly to align with them. As someone who has spent almost all of his life on the edge, racing motorcycles and competing, I have experienced ego, other peoples and my own… the fact is we are all unique, but we have all walked the same path, we are born, we are educated, via school, and life experiences, and we arrive in some way shape and form at adulthood… the difficulty we all face is translation, we translate everything we see, touch, feel and experience based on our perception and internal understanding.

It takes a deeply humble soul to use his or her difficulties to understand and explore the opportunity to expand their own ability to be compassionate…

In racing, living life, failing and experiencing grief, trauma and pain, I have in the end become more aware of myself, the mistakes I have made, and eventually self-forgiveness. Humility is the one aspect this lesson I now walk has shone a light on…

We are not the sum of our mistakes, but an opportunity to take them and make something more precious… to create a compassionate place for others to heal in…
