One thing YHC is guilty of is not appreciating just how much progress is made when working on projects at work, watching his kids do homework and how much they have learned, and even during BC with a challenging workout.
Today, we took a second or two to look back down the hill we just bear crawled and the straightaway we just lunged. There is a lot that can motivate someone, but looking at the progress made always keeps YHC going. It is proven that human nature looks for the bad a lot more than good. We find the suck factor much more than we find the leaps forward that we have made.
In the middle of our trials and tribulations, we seem to only be satisfied when said trial is completed. When you feel overwhelmed, try to not look at how much work is left, but find pleasure in what has been accomplished so far. It may take away some of the overwhelming thoughts and keep you on the track to completion.

One Saturday this past November, the University of Kentucky allowed for the Left Tackle position to be open for the first play from scrimmage and takes a delay of game penalty in honor of OL Coach John Schlarman who passed away after his battle with cancer.
Vanderbilt declined the penalty. These are two acts that show the good in people.
YHC had the honor of collecting funds for the Salvation Army this weekend. It’s amazing some of the stories that you hear on how the Salvation Army has helped people.
One lady spoke about how the organization helped her father after WWII to rehab his war injury and PTSD before that was even a thing.
Another lady in a wheelchair gave cash and asked how she could give more. “Is there a Mission around here?” “Why, yes ma’am, there certainly is!”
YHC saw the good side of people this weekend. It made him realize, with all the bad we hear about on the news, there is also a lot of good. YHC believes that there is much more good than bad out there, we just have to look for it.
