Finding your Zen

While running this morning I found myself thinking about my next blog post and then it came to me “Find your Zen” would be perfect. The weirdest part is it came to me while I was running, there are so many times I struggle with what to write next and out of nowhere Zen appears. While everybody’s Zen is different the end result will be the same. The meaning of Zen for me is finding my happy place or activity that you love to do and removes any thoughts or cares, but allows you to live in the moment. As weird as this sound my Zen place would be playing paintball (minus the drama that’s sometimes associated with it). I’ll have to admit another Zen place of mine is yoga, while I don’t get to go often enough I do enjoy my visits to Hot Yoga 365 and the relaxation it brings to me both physically and mentally.

Ask anyone what their Zen place is and I’m sure you’ll get a variety of answers. I can tell you without a shadow of a doubt the wife’s Zen place is running. She’s told me before that when she runs she tends to forget anything and everything and just enjoy the run. Her disconnect from anything and everything is what makes running her Zen place. I’ve had others tell me running, graphic design, yoga and even charity are their places of Zen. While there is no right or wrong everyone has their own idea of Zen and where it is.

With this being said I challenge you, Think about it and consider what would be your Zen place. Then make it happen, your Zen place may just be enough to help you forget about this crazy world for a bit and enjoy life.

Where is your Zen place? Do you go there often enough?

Good Luck in Dallas

Anyone who follows my blog knows my team will always be “Tampa Bay Damage”. Well as I’m sitting here posting this blog they’re packing their gear and kissing their loved ones goodbye to board a plane and head to Forney, Texas for the official kick-off of their 2013 PSP season. Back in January all teams started grinding for the 2013 season and I’m hoping it’ll be one hell of a season. While I’ve only been keeping up on professional paintball for the past few years I’ve come to realize it takes a lot for these guys, both physically and mentally to do what they do and continue to do so. I’m sure if you asked any pro player why they do what they do and I‘d bet the answer would be simple “For the love of the game”. Several years ago I would have disagreed with that statement, but the more I play the more I can say it’s true for me. Sure you’ll find those few “Self Promoters” that try to ruin the good times for the others, but they never seem to. I’d like to wish my friends on Tampa Bay Damage the best of luck at the PSP Dallas Open this weekend and safe travels. As you’re taking point after point, closing that gap for 1st place, remember all those who can’t physically be there with you, but are always there cheering for you wherever they may be.

Chasing down a dream

Everyone has their dream they’d like to accomplish in life. Well, for one person I know their dream is to be the best at what he wants to do with his life and that’s graphic design. He’s able to do anything from simple flyer design all the way up to designing custom paintball jerseys and everything in between. I’ve spoken with Trevis of Trevis Meseroll Designs for about a year now and had the pleasure of a face-to-face meeting with him in late October of 2012. He was down visiting family and was also here to watch what very well could be his favorite sport, paintball. What made this event extra special for him was that he won a contest designing a shirt for G.I. Sports, which was yet another of his many accomplishments he’s been able to achieve since he started in 2009. We watched our favorite professional team, Tampa Bay Damage, play and spoke of many things. I learned many things about him that day and I’ll share with you. If I could choose only one word to describe Trevis, it would have to be passionate. It’s clear in his designs that he truly loves what he does and continuously strives to reach for the stars in all that he designs.
