It's nice to see the whole season come to fruition. I look at this process as the journey of a man, which every guy goes through in life at different stages. I can honestly say that there may not have been another point in my life in which there was so much personal growth. The Leadership Foundation is what I believe to be a legacy, one that I hope far surpasses my own life and can be something the Nordgren family and all those involved will cherish and hold on to forever.
Through this process I hope everyone sees that people who are very close can put aside their differences and find the positive in relationships and therefore become closer than before. It's obvious that my relationship with Courtney has evolved tremendously. I don't think either of us will regret taking the steps that we have. I didn't think there was a way for us to become closer, but we did just that. This is a woman that I love and have tremendous respect for in every aspect of the word. I cannot wait to see what the future holds for the both of us. The one thing I know is that it will never be the same. I feel very sad for Tara and her situation; no one deserves to be lied to and deceived the way she was. This is a person whose heart and passion for giving far exceeds most and is the least deserving of pain in her life. Whoever she ends up with will be a lucky man.
Drew also went through a ton of personal growth. I feel very strongly that Drew will find the person he is looking for, and that through his heartache, he will be better equipped to identify who that person is now that he knows himself so much better. I couldn't be any happier for lovely Neill and her amazing band. It's great to finally see her in a big performance and to hear that great voice. She is talented and passionate when it comes to music. They have a great group of people, and I know that career is only just beginning.
My boy Glenn, the longtime NFL kicker, is leaving us behind to do what he does best. Whether it works out in the long run or not, his head is in the right place with his life goals and business directions. He will no doubt be a lifelong friend.
I want to thank you all for the unending support through this process. I feel like there is so much left to do and I can promise this…it's only just the beginning. Stay tuned for what's to come…it's not over.
In the interim please follow what we are doing at www.MattNordgren.com and follow me on Twitter @mattnordgren. Through the website everyone can link to the foundation and see our calendar of big events to come raising money to make a difference in others' lives. Lastly, I have to thank Dallas, TX (the seventh and strongest character) for being the most amazing city a guy could ever live in. The support of the town and the people in it has been what made it so special all these years. It will forever be my home!
