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!
