Have you ever convinced yourself that you should do something but you really knew you should make a different choice? Like tonight, I really should be at the gym right now but instead I’m curled up in my bed writing this.
My senior year of high school I convinced myself I hated writing (Sorry Ms.Patton). I wanted to be a nurse and help change the world. Being a nurse would allow me to virtually live anywhere and help people. It seemed like the best plan for me.
Fast forward a few years and some thousands of dollars later I was miserable. I hated school. I loved the school I was going to but sitting in a medical microbiology class wasn’t my cup of tea. In between lectures I was talking sports with the guys I sat with and looking up job openings in the NFL. Yes, I know, I’m weird.
Sports have always had a special place in my heart. From playing sports from the time I was little to cheering on my brothers at baseball games it seems like my life has always revolved around sports. I was that girl who only read the sports section of the newspaper. Summers were spent outside playing catch and Sundays were spent watching football with my dad and brothers.
I knew what I wanted to do but it would require a leap of faith into completely unknown territory. Life has a funny way of putting people into our life to help guide us along and take those steps into the unknown. I feel so blessed to have so many people helping mentor and cheer me on as I get to live out my dream on a regular basis.
Covering spring football this past spring was heaven. I learned so much in such a small amount of time and I couldn’t be more excited to continue to learn and grow in the sporting world.
I’ll be sharing a lot more of my opinion on topics about sports (like how I’d take LeBron over Steph) and some inside information I get from time to time. For those who don’t love sports as much as my heart does. I’ve got you covered as well. Stay tuned for posts about lessons learned in my life, a challenging but rewarding weight loss journey life is currently taking me on, and other topics completely unrelated to sports.
