Going with the Flow
There are a lot of things happening in my life right now that remind me to roll with the waves. Going with the flow of life is very important and something I need to constantly remind myself of (hence why I have waves tattooed on my wrist).
I am creeping closer to a big transition period in my life, one where I can't use "oh, I'm actually still in school" as an excuse because I'll have a masters degree under my belt. To be honest, before the holidays I was starting to panic a little bit, but after spending some time around my greatest support system I started to realize just how exciting this time can be.
For those that know me, know that I am very Type A (wait, really?). I like everything structured, methodical, and strategically planned, so going with the flow isn't always one of my strengths but something I am constantly trying to improve on. But guess what I'm starting to figure out; not everything in life goes according to plan - sometimes opportunities present themselves when you least expect them and sometimes things take a left turn when you thought it was going right. I can proudly say for once in my life, I'm kinda excited about the uncertainty of what's next ... what country will I be in? Will I travel? Will I make my daydream of living in NYC for a brief stint a reality? Who will I be coaching? Where will I be coaching? THERE'S SO MANY QUESTIONS! But I am confident that I will find the answers eventually. For now, I will continue to give my all to my athletes, students, co-workers, and friends here at Ohio U and make the most of every experience Athens has to offer (Court St. included).
Just like when I was an athlete, I want to do everything in my power to be the best coach (and student) I can be. I will let my actions speak louder than my words and the rest will be in fate's hands. Who really knows whats next for me, but MAN I'm excited!
My takeaway from this blog is to control the controllables and to remember that sometimes you just have to go with the flow. Who knows where I'll end up, but I can guarantee I'll be living out my passion and sharing it with others because life is so much more enjoyable that way.
