When I went to the fields today, the nets had finally been taken off of the goal posts signifying a kind of unofficial end to my soccer season.
This summer, I used soccer to get myself in shape and keep my mind clear. And while I am still largely COMPLETE garbage and I never really reached the level of "match fit," I learned a lot and I'm pretty damn proud of myself.
If nothing else, I learned to have the confidence to take the shot that I wanted to take. Yes, I could tap the ball in to the net, but come game time, I'd have to learn how to get it up and over with enough power and spin to give the keeper no chance. Even if I missed, I could say I tried. It's obvious to see how I've been able to take that philosophy and apply it to the rest of my life.
So here it is - my last chance to put the ball where I'd trained to put it all year: over the wall and dropped in to the far post pocket.
With confidence. 🎯
