This blog post is making it’s way through Facebook. I have to admit that I got a little teary when reading it.
It’s a beautiful statement about how, when you trust that things will work out, they do. And they turn out better than you had ever imagined. When I was younger, looking forward to where I thought I would be, I didn’t quite imagine the journey I’m on, but I wouldn’t trade it. I’ve learned so much, and I know I will not be satisfied if that process every stopped.
I had a moment of realizing this last night at ultimate frisbee practice. I started going to the competitive practices in January, and am fairly confident in saying that I’m one of the technically weakest players. For the first month I was constantly confused in drills.
In league this week, things started to click. I was playing better defence. My throws are getting better. At practice last night, I (mostly) understood the drills. It was the moment where I looked back and realized how much better I’ve gotten in the last 3 months, and that if I keep up the work, I hope to report to have improved significantly more over the coming 3 months! The moments that make it all worthwhile.
