I’ve been reminded, every day, that getting injured earlier this year took away the biggest opportunity of my life. What people don’t know is I tried to fight through the injury. I wrestled another 3 shows( my choice) before finally collapsing backstage. I tried so hard to get to my feet because I knew if I didn’t get up this opportunity will be gone. I guess I took too long to get to my feet. And just like that, the opportunity was gone. Everyday this year all I can think about is, “Why couldn’t you hold on a little longer?” Despite coming back, producing my own vignettes, getting in the best shape of my life and having a story that literally writes itself, I haven’t been able to get close to that opportunity again. Lost in the shuffle. I thought 2019 was going to be the year that the dream turned into a nightmare. Then, I see a photo like this. I see what I want this world to be. I see who I want to be. I see I’ve got to travel the world and breakdown barriers and shatter stereotypes. For those of you that know my story, you know that I use to play a stereotypical role as an evil foreigner and one day I saw a young boy with blonde hair and blue eyes in the crowd. I saw fear on his face. I saw that I taught him to hate people that look like me. And now, I’m able to right that wrong. I’m able to bring light to the dark. I may have missed out on an opportunity, but I didn’t miss out on my purpose. -- @themattycox
