The past two weekend have been golden.
Last weekend, my oldest son won gold with his high school team for zones, (basically all the schools in a 100 km radius). This weekend my other son won gold for Provincials. That means his basketball team was the best in the whole province of Alberta for B1 division. To make it even more exciting. In the final game, he had a chance to win the game with two foul shots and 3 seconds left, but he missed them both. He was devastated, but he made the winning basket in overtime to win the game. Very fun.
Once the excitement was over, I started to reflect on what I had accomplished as a child, and I hate to admit that it wasn't much, other than giving my parents a hard time. I wish I would have been more focused and ambitious. Instead, I was comfortable with just coasting along in life. I didn't strive to be the best at anything.
I often wonder where that drive in people comes from. Sometimes I see glimpses of it in myself, but not as often as I would like. I think I need to steal someone's, or burrow, because stealing is bad.
So if you have some extra drive and ambition could you please leave a little on this blog. I'm sure you can spare just a bit.
