I build things that look like this, I also have a store.
Meaning comes fromt the volentary addoption of responsiblity. It is not a static state, but a process that must be practiced every day.
It was cool to get the rematch against someone who beat me on a questionable ref call last tournament, but I wish there was more people competing in my bracket.
This is an extremely symbolic match for me. It’s not about the money, it’s about the shift that happens when you do something and get paid for the first time. Up until this point, I have always paid to do Jiu-Jitsu. If I win this match, I will get paid $50. More importantly, I will forever have the achievement of going pro.
