It’s fall again, school is back in full swing, and yes, football has started. I have once again decided to help with coaching so my afternoons are spent on a practice field and Friday nights under the lights.
This season, like last, will be filled with trials and tribulations. As we stare down that road, we hope that the last season prepared us to overcome the adversity placed before us. That it will guide us to better prepare for each week.
I think what brings me back this year, knowing the adversity that will be faced, is the kids. It is a couple hours a day to help develop the next generation. To impart some knowledge on them that may help them down the road, or at least that’s what I tell myself.
In these two hours the rest of the world drops. My phone is left in the truck, and I have no other distractions other than what can I teach in the time I have. It’s my reprieve, my opportunity to refill my bucket. We all need that opportunity to do something we enjoy while giving back to our communities.
As we walk through the trials and tribulations presented to us each day in this world of healthcare, you need to find your reprieve. Without those few minutes to re-gather your strength it’s hard to march forward.
“Life moves pretty fast. If you don’t stop and look around every once in a while, you could miss it.”
