I recently began coaching the Anderson Town Tigers U16 boys team. I usually arrive at the gym hours before practice and help with some of the younger groups or train some of the boys on my team who arrive early. This past Saturday I arrived early enough to see boys ages 3-5 practicing. I was amazed at what I was seeing while watching their practice. I started to think back to the times when I was that age and how I had not yet began any organized training. What I was amazed by was the level of joy that was in the eyes of the boys while they were practicing. It was contagious even as I just watched with no involvement whatsoever.
I smiled and thought to myself if I could just recreate that exact joy while playing basketball and everything else that I set my mind and heart on doing how much greater my experiences would be. The joy that those boys had spoke volumes. They did not have a care in the world just happily living in the moment enjoying their time on the court. I plan to tap into that level of happiness within my life. “To God Be The Glory”
