March Madness - Day 20

Let competition make you, not break you!

There's more than the actual win. Don't miss the lessons!

I enter the arenas with my head held high and my chest poked out.

The track stadium.
The gymnastics area.
The swimming pools.
The basketball court.
The soccer field.
The softball field.
The school auditorium.
Even the church pew.

Wherever my children compete, I walk in full confidence that they will show up and dominate.

Truth is, we win some and we lose some.
But either way, I always have my kids backs.

Sometimes, I question the coaches.
Sometimes, I question the judges.
Sometimes, I question my child.

I always want to know what happened? How can she/he get better? (Even a win can be better. Yep, I'm THAT mom. More goals. More points. More speed. You get the point...)

I push.
                    I push again.
                                                    I push some more.

Thankfully, my children aren't quite as intense as I am. They balance me out.

You see, they all walk with a different level of humility.

During a past competition for one of my children, I was reminded that "...with humility comes wisdom." Proverbs 11:2
The Road of Humility Leads to Wisdom

My children are humble enough to accept their wins with their losse.
They are wise enough to know that they are the head and not the tail.They are wise enough to know that all things are possible with God.
They are wise enough to know that the best is yet to come.

What word of wisdom have your humility developed with you?

Who is your Gnat??

The summer is upon us and you know what that means.

Well, sure. It could mean many things.

But for me, it means that gnats will be in the air. Buzzing around my head. Irritating me.

I am sure you are familiar with gnats. They are small two winged flies that resemble mosquito. Let's not even get started with mosquitos. 🙎

As for gnats, they seem to appear out of nowhere. They are always there when you are trying to enjoy the sunshine.

This is sometimes what we experience when we have overbearing individuals in our lives. Usually parents or loved ones. Maybe a supervisor. Sometimes, this can be your accountability partner.

Please don't tell me I am the only person with an overbearing individual in my life? You know the one....

The person who constantly ask you about your goals.
The person who continuously shares opportunities with you.
