The cure to all stress

October 22nd, 2015 | Uncategorized

I’ll admit I was feeling a bit stressed out as I woke up this morning. My school workload has begun piling up and I have a lot of projects to get done. The only thing I wanted to do was sleep for another few hours. But, rise and grind!! I had three sessions of coaching to do. Don’t get me wrong, I always look forward to coaching. I just had a lot of things running through my mind in the morning that were distracting me.

That all changed as I started coaching and playing games with all the girls who came to Trinity today to play some basketball through the outreach program we have here. Right away, they put a smile on my face as they learned their new skills, doing little dances between drills and asking all the questions about America.
Even though I’m supposed to be the one trying to make an impact on them, they have an even bigger impact on me. Children have a way of brightening even the darkest of days with something as simple as a smile. I forgot all about schoolwork for those few hours and acted like one of the 10 year olds.. And left totally stress-free ready to take on the challenges of the rest of the day.
