Rookie has had many walks of life and relays some of his experiences onto us. He explains how a simple reach out to show your interested can open the world up to you and has on many occasions for himself. The offering of your time and effort is invaluable.


Rookie tells the story of how throwing his back out whilst saving his son from the ocean lead to him finding a cancer the size of a golf ball on his kidney. He now sees life in a different light and although he’s not 100% again, his focus is now on enjoying life and appreciating the little things. His quote ‘I used to love sleeping in, now I love sunrises’ stuck out most!


Don’t take life for granted. Use your time wisely and don’t be left wondering


We leave you with this quote from Rookies Facebook:

‘Sometimes the best thing you can do is not think, not wonder, not imagine, not obsess. Just breathe, and have faith everything will work out for the best’
