You may be wondering why there is a picture of me on a cake.


Good question.


Suzy organized a nice, intimate surprise for my 40th last Friday. It was pretty awesome to say the least.


Anyhow, I will be writing much more about looking back at 40 years of life in an upcoming letter to the boys.


While I was at my motorcycle course this past weekend, I had a pretty cool insight.


As you may or may not know, I started Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu 4 years ago. Itโ€™s been such a great thing for my development.


One of the main things that I have had to work on and continue to work on is the idea of non-force. Meaning, I can muscle a lot of people around, thatโ€™s my background, strength training.


But in order to grow, I mustn't do that.


Suppleness is the order of the day and sometimes that can be humbling when you are used to using brute strength with a lot of things.


Parallel that to the motorcycle course. One of the teachers, Bob, kept reminding me to relax my shoulders, let out a breath.


And each time he told me that, I could feel my shoulders drop about 2 inches and an easiness come into myself.


Two activities that one would equate with strength of some sort, yet my big takeaway is to relax and be more supple.


When you try to use force to control a physical endeavor, you are met with counterforce. When you use force, you are distinctly separate from the activity that you are partaking in.


For me, itโ€™s been and continues to be a process about becoming one with the experience, being a part of it, not being separate from it.


No two journeys are the same.


Collect the tokens that you are supposed to be collecting as you go down your path of life.


Be unconventional - Kyle Newell
