The best way to succeed in life is to act on the advice we give others.
I must confess that I need to take my own advice. I should have read my last blog before this competition. I said one thing and it came back to bite me you know where.
This was a tough competition for me as the mother of a flyer. It was the first time I saw my daughter fall out of the air, not once but twice. Unfortunately, earlier in the morning one of our other teams had a fall and I heard people blaming a particular flyer. So, I was instantly on the defensive. I think it is our nature as a parent to defend our kids.
This is a team sport and no one should be blaming themselves or anyone else. It takes a team to win and a team to lose.
This is our first competition of the season. I am so proud of how hard our team worked all week. They bonded together this week like no other team.
I have heard so much trash talking from athletes from other teams it is disgusting. I am at a loss for words. To go around and cheer on these teams and trashing the athletes on that team behind their back it is awful. Seriously, going around talking about who has skills and who doesn't is so disgusting
We are staying at a hotel on the beach and the teams are writing their names in the sand. One time is called EPIC and someone wrote FAIL next to it. Really? Come on.
Today, It is a new day on a different stage. So, it is a fresh start.
