This is kind of a tough one to post. People think as instructors we are supposed to be perfect, never miss or throw a shot, or have an answer for every question asked. Like any human, we have highs and lows. The last couple range trips have been lows for me. Why? Who knows. The important thing is to not let it get too deep into you, even the best of us have to step back and focus on the basics every now and then. That's what I did. I scrubbed my whole session and refocused on what I really needed and did waaay better after a bit. However, I chose to post my not so good side. Honesty, integrity, and accountability are way more important than looking good for Instagram. Never give up on yourself, work thru the low points, focus on what really matters and you will probably be teaching me something one day. I look forward to it! 🤙 Educate. Train. Maintain. #train#range#sundaygunday#focus#privaterange#cwp#instructor#fundamentals#pewpew#saber#grouptherapy#glock#19x#basics#baersolutions#nevadaammunition#northcharlestonsc#chootem#work

LUBIĘ BIAŁE T-SHIRTY BO…mogę śmigać w nich na rowerze i nie widać, że się mocno spociłem. Pasują do wszystkiego czego bym nie ubrał. Dobrze się czuje w tym kolorze.
NOSZĘ JE…bardzo często, około 182 dni w roku

Back to Basics
When things get hairy and grand plans get smooshed under the feet of chaos, you can always always go back to basics. Use them as your anchor. How can I take care of myself in this moment with the tools I have?
1. Remember to breathe into all of your corners
2. Allow yourself to rest
3. Eat nutritious food
4. Connect with the people who matter
NB: portions assume you are eating 3-4 meals per day. Scale as needed and listen to your hunger/fullness signals.

I BOUGHT THIS T-SHIRT...3 weeks ago in a sportswear shop mostly because I knew I was going to meet the photographer and I was intrigued by the project
I LIKE WHITE T-SHIRTS...because they are cheap and simple yet look elegant and classic, I guess
I WEAR IT...with either black jeans or washed ones; I actually started to wear it just one day before the shooting but I really like it and it has broaden the range of possibilities in my outfits - “Une bonne decouverte!” foto: Dominika Górniak @sweetcinnamoncupcake, September 23rd 2018, #Warsaw
#backtobasics with my first #kilatank . Love how fast this pattern went and how dreamy this bamboo jersey is from @blackbirdfabrics.
I generally buy a stash of 3-4 white tanks for layering a few times a year since they get so much wear. I'm super happy to get off this one aspect of the fast fashion merry-go-round.
I zigzagged the binding on, serged the sides, and then did a straight stitch to finish the binding with a stretch thread bobbin, stretching the fabric slightly- hence the shirred look on the hanger. It lays perfectly when it's on. I had some issues with skipped stitches on this fabric even after I cleaned my machine and got a finer ballpoint (70/10), but it's much better than my first few tries.
I'll cut three more, serge the binding and consider cover stitching, but probably get lazy and straight stitch, let's face it. 🙄
When I first talked about the impacts of investing $10 into a company, I hinted at the fact that it would be wiser to invest that $10 into four stocks at $2.50 each. I am going to explain why. This is a lesson in diversity. It is probably the most important concept you should understand when thinking about investments.
What happens if your $10/share investment goes to $5, or even worse, $0? You lose big. You put all of your money into one venture, and it failed you.
Now, let’s say you split that into four stocks at $2.50 each. I will refer to them as A, B, C, and D.
Stock A’s price went from $2.50 to $1.25. You lost 50% of your investment.
Stock B stayed the same at $2.50.
Stock C moved to $4.00. You gained 60%. Stock D moved to $3.00, gaining 20%. Your portfolio value at the end of year one would be $10.75. That is a return of 7.5%. That is well above the interest rate you would have received on any checking or saving account, and well above what you would receive on risk-free treasuries.
Could you have made $16.00(60%) if you only invested in stock C? Yes.
Could you have lost $5.00(50%) if you only invested in stock A? Hell yes.
By diversifying, you exposed yourself to much less risk than you would have otherwise. Your return was not as great, but you are still in the game with a positive return.
It won’t always workout that way. You could have lost 5% or more, but the idea is to lessen the impacts of uncertainty. It is also a good idea to keep a reserve of cash, and even some of those risk-free treasuries I mentioned.
Going back to basics and starting this next week 🏃
. . .
I'm the first to tell someone it doesn't matter what number is on the bar or how strong/fast you are as long as you're trying and working on your weaknesses, yet the same doesn't seem to apply to myself. I avoid running like the plague because I suck at it, but no more!!
. . .
So I'm saying goodbye to my stupid fucking ego and I'm starting a couch to 5k and dare I say it, I'm actually looking forward to running!
