“I went through real darkness, but the ring was my light. That was the one place I felt safe. I could control what happened in the ring. My heart turned icy.” -Sugar Ray Leonard
My name is Jordan Canseco, if you’ve made your way to this blog, I truly appreciate it. Some of you may be wondering… What the hell is this guy talking about when he says “icy”? Well let me put it in the most simplest way possible. Like Sugar Ray, when you feel the iciness in your heart, it means you are, in your mind, at a mental state where nothing can stop you. You control what happens and what doesn’t. Well, I’m 20 years old, I’m starting my third year of college, and it does not do to dwell on what “could’ve been”. No. This is the time of my life when I’m going to seize every opportunity that comes my way, and control my own future. Ladies and Gents, my heart has turned icy.
