Love Who You Love

As I was running around like a crazy person on Friday, still exhausted from my epic State Meet weekend, feeling drained and hung over (due to a lack of sleep)... I had a moment of complete clarity.  I hadn't had one in weeks... feeling like the chalk from the gym had just settled into a permanent fog in my brain.  I was coaching my collegiate girls on beam and one of our seniors was doing her routine.  We were doing pressure sets, so everyone on our event was watching.  The song on the radio was Rascal Flatt's "Love Who You Love," and I couldn't help but smile.  It was one of those moments where nothing matters.

I was exhausted, but I didn't know it then.
I was hungry, but my stomach didn't growl.
I was missing my family, but I felt perfectly content.
There were dishes to do and laundry to fold when I got home, and yet I was at ease.

As life's frustrations had momentarily stepped out of my mind, my heart was completely overfilled with joy.  Here I was, standing in the gym that shaped me into the person I am, helping the next generation of collegiate athletes to reach their potential.  The energy was high and I felt electric, like I was in EXACTLY the right place in that moment.

So often, particularly in the rush that is this time of year, we lose sight of the little things- Like the pure joy that can be felt by sharing something you love with the people you love.  My advice for today... don't take anything or anyone for granted.  LOVE WHO YOU LOVE, AND SAY THAT YOU DO!

Love True-
Allison



I should have stolen every moment
Now there's a page
With not enough on it
Where we belong
I guess I'll never understand it
Why do we take it all for granted
Until it's gone
'Cause then it's gone

Love who you love
With all that you have
And don't waste the time
That flies so fast
Love who you love
And say that you do
Hold on as tight as they'll let you
Love who you love

Give all you've got
Like it's your last day
Your heart and soul
Before it's too late
And pull them in so close
Enough that they can feel it
With every single breath that 
You're breathing
Breathe it in again and again

Love who you love
With all that you have
And don't waste the time
That flies so fast
Love who you love
And say that you do
Hold on as tight as they'll let you
Love who you love

Hold on, hold on

Yeah, love who you love
Say that you do -- yeah

Love who you love
With all that you have
And don't waste the time
That flies so fast
Love who you love
And say that you do
Hold on as tight as they'll let you
Love who you love

Yeah, love
Love who you love
Say that you do
Hold on, keep on holdin' on -- yeah
Yeah, with every single breath
You're breathing
