Final post before a climb to the land of Nod… There are many parallels that can be drawn between life and sport, especially physical sports. One of the first things you are taught in Judo, for example, is how to fall without injuring yourself. No matter what situations you have to confront in life, and as we all know there are many, there is one thing you can be sure of; you wont always come out on top.
Your victory and courage, however, comes from the understanding of that fact, and your continuing willingness to face those conflicts and more. It is often easier not to challenge yourself than face up to possible disappointment. As someone far more learned that I once said..’It is better to die as a Lion than live like a Lamb.
Incidentally £4 out of pocket tonight..any benefactors out there.
