My life is a game of football

September is finally here! That means school is back in session, the weather will start to cool down, the leaves will be turning and falling soon, and football is back. I AM ELATED.

Many of you probably don’t care about football, or possibly sports in general, but it really has a special place in my heart.

Ever since I was a little girl, I remember watching football with my dad. Monday night football, Sunday games… Sitting with dad, getting rowdy, yelling at the tv, high fiving at the great plays… some of my favorite memories. I hope I never forget them.

You see, I relate to football on so many different levels… It’s a time for friends and family to come together, whether in celebration or disappointment. Either way, the conversation and company is amazing, and so is the food that’s consumed. The thrill of the game is intoxicating. I love the physicality of the players, the passion and attitude, and the strategy involved. (The payday is just a nice bonus!)

Life should be about our family and friends. Hold close to those who support and build you up… the ones that have your back. They celebrate with you in the good times, and are there for you during the hard times. These are the people to cling to. They may even show up with delicious food.

Every minute of your life should be a thrill… appreciated and intoxicating. Living life to the fullest. Is it always that way? No, but is it possible to change your view and make it so? It might be tough, but be happy you get to play the game.

I am passionate about a lot of things. When I’m pumped, I yell, dance, and celebrate. When I’m angry, I tend to lash out, with attitude. (Throat punch Thursday anyone?) Our lives are full of highs and lows. It requires strategy and poise. It’s okay to celebrate your successes,  but not to the detriment of others. It’s okay to be disappointed when things don’t go our way, but don’t be a sore loser. Reevaluate and make adjustments as needed.

Football

Strategize and succeed

Put a positive spin on your game of life. Prepare for the unknown. Have a game plan. Dance when you succeed. Keep your composure when you fail. Come back stronger when you try again. Unite with the players on your team and aim for the prize.

YOU’VE GOT THIS.
