Crazy old fool

Sitting in the parking lot, halfway to Hamilton, I’ve pulled in to my regular pit stop to catch a moment of peace. The weekend ahead is going to be hard. It’s one I’ve dreaded for a long time but the time has finally come and I’m not even sure I’m ready. My Grandfather passed away just as we were sent into lockdown during the current Covid 19 events here in New Zealand. ...

But Why?

One thing that people all over the world, in business and in life, encourage of people is to bring your whole self to everything. That you should never have to hide a part of who you are to please anyone else. However, from what I’ve experienced, I hide a part of myself to protect me for reasons that I shouldn’t have to. Being a female professional wrestler is something that most people ...

Holy Empowerment Batman!

OH! You are going to hear me now! I don’t know what specifically was the turning point most recently but, oh my, have I found it. That thing I thought I had all along but it wasn’t quite there. Just not quite… loud enough. True enough. I love writing and love that I have this outlet and place to share. I didn’t share a post last week and, when asked by my life ...

I’m my own Superhero

Hi, I’m Sarah, and I’m your regular 'plain Jane'. All my life, I’ve been as average as they come. Average in clothing and shoe size, always 3rd in competitions at school and sports, and average at school, too. My grades were never amazing. Heck, even my name is as plain and as average as it can get: Sarah Smith. When I decided it was time to become my own superhero and step ...

You

You look at me as though I have all the answers. Like I’m some kind of saviour here to fix all of your problems. You look at me with eyes of despair that tear me up inside because I cannot read your mind, but I can feel the pain in your eyes. You tell me I don’t say the right things. You tell me I don’t know what I’m talking about and ...

Where’d you go?

It's been a while since I've written anything here. I was caught up for the past year in wanting to make the most of an opportunity I was given. I dedicated my time to it. So much so, I stopped writing, stopped wrestling and stopped progress on plans I had. Something definitely hasn't been right over the past 12months. As I came back to this space to take a look at what ...

I’m not changing for anyone!

Get out of here with your opinion. It’s unwelcome and was never asked for. Too many times, people share with you how they think you should do something. How you should look a certain way, act a certain way or even think a certain way. Do you know why I’m not acting the way you want me to? It’s because that’s not who I am. I think you are great the way ...

Luck has nothing to do with it!

“OH you are SO lucky!” *insert eye roll* oh, piss off! Quit it with this “luck” business. It ain’t luck, sweetheart. It’s called hard work. How’d I get to where I am? I worked for it. How do I have the things I have? I, and my partner, worked hard and continue to work hard for what we have. It doesn’t come easy. It doesn’t happen overnight and it doesn’t get ...
