Play Ball!

So what do you do when life throws you a curve ball?
( Please read...everything was going just fine and then there was an unexpected career changing event!)
How do you hit the ball out of the park?
( in other words... how do you keep your goals,survive the upset and turn it around successfully?)
Ignore the twitches and antics of the pitcher! The shoulder feints ,the high leg kick,the side arm delivery that distract & confuse you.
( stay focused on your goal,ignore the angst, fears, and negative thoughts, of others as well as yourself of the events that you can't control caused by someone else's actions.)
The ball will always go from point A to point B. It simply changes its path but the destination is the same. ( your goals are the same,but your path to them has altered . Make adjustments. Redirect your energies.)
Step into the batter's box.
(show up...every day. )
Keep your eye on the ball. ( You know what you want..,you know your goal)
Swing ! (you'll never know till you try)
Miss !(it happens...)
Hit! (yessssssss.!)

(btw ... I'm a Yankee fan!)

I'm not into sports but I just get up and keep pushing forward.

I did get hit in a very delicate area once by a hard ball at school.

Perhaps that is why I have never had much interest in baseball or football.

I do know that when they get hit with that hurts!!

I hope you have a great weekend!!

P.S. My grandsons are Red Sox fans but don;t hold that against me. it's there mother's fault!!
