Anticipation is the best

Let me tell you something. Birthdays and holidays just aren’t that great. I love the days BEFORE those days. The days leading up to birthdays and holidays are my favourite. Anticipation is the best.

Strong convictions, loosely held.

Strong convictions, loosely held. I remember hearing someone say that and I loved that idea.

A friend and I had a discussion last week about something that I feel pretty strong about. After a quick discussion, I finally accepted the fact that we weren’t going to agree. Then, this week, a friend and I came across a problem and we both proposed different solutions. Over time, we presented our opinions, how we felt and why and eventually, we agreed on a totally different solution. It wasn’t my solution and it wasn’t his, it was somewhere in the middle.

What really matters? The little things.

It’s true. What really matters, is the little things. They’re easy to overlook, but should never be forgotten.

Since we moved online, we’ve been offering private lessons online to our students. The whole goal of doing that was to make sure that students continued to train, learn and grow.

Embrace the change!

With everything that’s going on, you’ve got to embrace change. Everywhere we go, home, work and school, we’re being forced to adapt and it’s a great opportunity.

Last week I was helping one of my duaghters with her school work and it was going really poorly. It was a subject that I’m not strong in, the assignement was confusing and when I combined that with some other things, I lost my cool. It wasn’t my best moment.

Love and duty. What a way to separate joy from work.

Last week I was on a conference call with a bunch of different sports organizations from the area. All of the people on the call help run different sports organizations and they were on the call trying to figure out ways to overcome the current situation and what will likely arise from it in the future so that it doesn’t affect people’s participation in sport.
