Day 689–Keeping Perspective

So…we lost. It wasn’t the prettiest of games, but we played hard and there’s definitely room to grow.  I’m feeling good about tomorrow’s game two.

I found myself reviewing the game all day today…individual plays, sections of movement, bounces that could have gone our way…kind of drove me nuts.  I kept wavering back and forth between the idea that we were three feet away from winning and three feet away from being completely blown out.  It can be stressful to harp on so many things that just don’t matter in the grand scheme of…life. Kind words from my dad, an encounter with someone at church, even a completely random tweet from a former student all helped to set me straight about what really matters.  It’s a lot easier to approach soccer, class, relationships, everything when you’ve got a better bird’s eye view of what we’re doing.  I appreciate the lesson in humility.

Breakfast–A homemade cranberry-vanilla muffin.  Awesomeness.

Lunch–1.5 peanut butter and jelly sandwiches.  Jenna and Seth gave us some strawberry-rhubarb jam from Memphis, and it made EPIC PB&J.  I loved it.

Snack–Some peanut butter M&Ms leftover from our road trip to Dallas.

Dinner–Genghis Grill before church.  My bowl had beef, shrimp, celery, mushrooms, peppers, onions, edamame, pineapple, and some spicy soy sauce.  It was great.

Dessert–Another muffin.  Good for breakfast AND dessert!

Game #2 tomorrow…feeling good.

Have a good one.
