It’s not going to turn out the way you thought. It will be better.

You won’t do it at the right time.

You’ll be late.

“You’ll be early.

You’ll get re-routed.

You’ll get delayed.

You’ll change your mind.

You’ll change your heart.

It’s not going to turn out the way you thought it would.

It will be better”.

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.
