Every day that we wake up, we are presented with choices.
If the choices were as simple as good and bad, we would most likely choose good ones. If the options were effective verses ineffective, we would choose the effective one.
Almost all of the time.
For those of us who with the best intentions have made life altering choices that we deeply regret, more than once, we know that making wise choices is not easy.
Elisabeth Kübler-Ross (July 8, 1926 – August 24, 2004) was a Swiss-American psychiatrist, a pioneer in near-death studies and the author of the groundbreaking book On Death and Dying (1969), where she first discussed her theory of the five stages of grief.
She was a 2007 inductee into the American National Women’s Hall of Fame. She was the recipient of twenty honorary degrees and by July 1982 had taught, in her estimation, 125,000 students in death and dying courses in colleges, seminaries, medical schools, hospitals, and social-work institutions.
That is a tough summation to swallow when you have viewed yourself one way but the outcome of your bad choices seem to say that you are someone else.
DWW’s star BSA Fighter and Wrestler appears to have made many good choices in life. Her early career included being a champion Olympic styled wrestler.
Her occupation of choice is being a Sports Trainer. Given the way she has excelled on the DWW mats and in the ring demonstrates that she is very good at what she does and practices what she preaches.
The reviews speak to that.
In her match verses Tatyana a fan expressed, “This is one of the rare BSA fights where the girls didn’t wear gloves. Additionally we’re excited about this match because there are two of the world’s best athletes in the ring. On one side there’s Taekwondo world champion Tatyana and on the other side there’s national Olympic Style wrestling champion Rada who was trained in boxing, too. Could the wrestler defeat the slightly bigger Taekwondo fighter in a real fight? There’s no love lost between them and both athletes are really trying to win.”
I try to live my life where I end up at a point where I have no regrets. So I try to choose the road that I have the most passion on because then you can never really blame yourself for making the wrong choices. You can always say you’re following your passion.……Darren Aronofsky
Some people love cities at sea level.
Some people love potential mates at eye level.
In Rada’s world she loved to compete at ground level.
In the brutally tough BSA world, the standing level which favored the boxers was not the position Rada wanted to compete from. This bore out in her match with Julya.
“Beautiful Julya is a musical dancer and a boxer and she’s extremely fit with a strong and lean body. Rada, however, is a wrestling champion and she’s trying to get her chances in a technically skilled fight on the floor since she knows that younger Julya is the better boxer and the stronger woman. Who will be the stronger and the better woman this time?”
Another match against BSA Viktoria revealed that as well.
“This is a BSA extreme fight from the 1998 summer event. Rada was a lightweight athlete. She was a National Champion of Olympic freestyle wrestling while much bigger and heavier Viktoria was a good heavy weight boxer. Rada was a wrestler who later learnt some basic boxing while Viktoria was a boxer who later on learnt some basic wrestling. Usually you would put your money on much heavier and stronger Viktoria, but Rada was smaller and quicker and she was a real fighter with a great spirit and a great experience for the perfect fighting tactics. She definitely tried to weaken heavier Viktoria by making her tired. Will her clever tactics become finally successful?”
Too often in life, something happens and we blame other people for us not being happy or satisfied or fulfilled. So the point is, we all have choices, and we make the choice to accept people or situations or to not accept situations.……….Tom Brady
Ultimately Rada faced virtually all of the top Black Sea Amazons. Interestingly her signature match was when she made the decision to wrestle a non BSA Fighter but DWW super star wrestler in Sandra, Dagmar’s sister. Both Dagmar and Sandra were great Czech Olympic free style wrestlers. Rada’s match against Sandra is a classic.
Here are some other enjoyable choices that Rada made in her private life.
Her favorite food is pizza and her drink of choice is mineral water. She loves disco dancing and sports of all kinds because her motto is to never quit and never submit.
Those are fun choices to make and now we are going to make another one.
It’s time to travel.
The Black Sea is a powerful and majestic part of the world that few in the West seem to know much about. In other articles we have made a decision to explore the cities that call this bountiful body of water home including Sochi, Odessa, Istanbul and others.
Today we will briefly visit Novorossiysk.
Novorossiysk is a city in Krasnodar Krai, Russia. It is the country’s main port on the Black Sea and the leading Russian port for exporting grain. It is one of the few cities honored with the title of the Hero City. The population is 241,952.
According to the informative site novpt.ru, “Novorossiysk Commercial Sea Port (NCSP) is one of the largest transport nodal points of South Russia. NCSP has the largest cargo turnover among Russian ports (report of Association of Russian Sea Ports) and the fifth largest in Europe. NCSP handles approximately 20% of all export and import cargoes shipped via Russian Sea ports (report of Association of Russian Sea Ports).”
The Black Sea is a sea between Southeastern Europe and Western Asia. It is bounded by Europe, Anatolia and the Caucasus, and drains through the Mediterranean into the Atlantic Ocean, via the Aegean Sea and various straits. The Bosphorus Strait connects it to the Sea of Marmara, and the Strait of the Dardanelles connects that sea to the Aegean Sea region of the Mediterranean. These waters separate Eastern Europe and Western Asia. The Black Sea is also connected to the Sea of Azov by the Strait of Kerch.
To some, the Black Sea is like an ocean.
Rada’s DWW career was a study in tough but good choices. She excelled and propelled herself to a higher sports level. Like the Black Sea she was powerful and expansive in her abilities.
As a result of those choices, time and history has chosen to remember her while so many in life will long be forgotten.
