I miss you guys! I miss being in the ring. I miss the DPP’s. I miss training hard. I’m not going to lie, this has been a very trying time! Yes, I have certainly loved my time at home with friends and family. But, I really miss doing what I love to do, wrestle.
I did get the opportunity to go to Miami and enjoy a spectacular Wrestlemania 28. It was wonderful weather and a truly memorable Wrestlemania. Yes, I would have loved to and rather been a part of the show, but I did get to see my friends and participate in WWE Wrestlemania Axxess. Speaking of Axxess, I have to thank all of you for your very warm reception and encouragement! So many people wished me well with my injuries and there were many “congrats” regarding my little boy on the way (Tate is only 7 weeks away!!! Can’t wait to see his face!!!). My spirits were really lifted after ‘Mania, so thank you ALL so much!!
Side Note: How bout that Triple H vs. Undertaker match???!!! … WOW!!!!
Other things that are going on: I have had time to devote to the development of the Ted DiBiase Foundation. There will be more information soon regarding the Foundation along with a website. I am extremely excited about the possibilities of this Foundation and how many lives we could impact through it! Nothing like this has ever been done before in this industry, and I am really looking forward to seeing how the WWE Universe will respond!! I have no doubt the response will be amazing!
I have had a chance, while being home, to speak at some schools and churches about my life experiences and what God has done for me. I have been blessed with opportunities to spend some time with the youth. It has really caused me to analyze what matters most. I’ve been telling the kids that I’ve talked to, don’t be afraid to make a stand! Be a leader and carve your own path! My question to them and to whomever may be reading this is: What kind of legacy do you want to leave? What are people going to say about you when this life comes to an end? We are all writing a story and we’ve all been given a pen with no eraser. You can’t re-do things, and boy do I wish I could! I have many regrets that I can’t take back and a lot of time wasted. I personally do not want to waste anymore time living a selfish life. I can only hope and pray that from now until my dying day I am: a good friend, a good husband, a good father, I live a SELFLESS life and most importantly give the glory to God. You don’t have to be a celebrity to make a difference! Be careful who you surround yourself with! Consider others better than yourself! And have a blessed day!!
