Play for today

Fight for every possession

as if everything could be snatched away

without warning in an unjustified instant.

Each moment counts

in a game of split-second decisions.

Tbirds

You will do better than you ever thought possible

as well as disappoint those who battle alongside you.

May you be hard on yourself in the pursuit of perfection

and kind on yourself knowing that excellence is elusive.

One day you will walk out of the gym

that has become your second home

for the final time.

You will remove your shoes and fight back tears

and wonder what comes next?

Play for today.

 

This is the sixth (#6) in a series of 100-word posts I plan to write. I dedicate these particular words to the 2018-2019 Bellevue West Thunderbird basketball team on the eve of their season opener.

My ultimate goal is to create 100 of these 100-word posts in no set time frame. Thanks for following along!

    In sports, that idea is beautiful. In life, it’s called being Jewish 😉
