Many moons ago, I spoke of a goal that blossomed into an opportunity last summer. This opportunity was swimming in the State Games of America 2015.
So what happened?
My wallet happened. The plane ticket was quite a bit of money that I couldn’t afford.
But here’s the cool thing:
My first USS Swim Meet went really well. So well that I really want to continue.
Me: Whoa look at all these people!
Me: They’re really tall.
Me: Oh, man, there are 87 people in my event.
Me: Well, I’m not gonna win.
Me: Hey, how are you?
Person: I’m good!
FRIENDSHIP HAPPENS! :D
So the lesson was this: There is nothing more exciting than meeting someone that shares your passion. I’m used to the people on my team complaining about how they don’t want to be there. Well, let me tell you this, THESE PEOPLE WANTED TO BE THERE. They signed up for it, they wanted it, and they love what they do! The atmosphere was so different than that of what I was used to, I went home so elated that I ate apple pie!
I shall be back to talk about the first meet of the summer season!
