No doubt about it life is gonna throw some curveballs. Currently the pandemic we’re all experiencing is one of the crazier ones. The interesting thing about curveballs in baseball is that they’re meant to be difficult to hit. But when a batter stands over the mound and settles in, taps the mound, and preps for it, waits patiently and hits it at the right spot, the curveball ends up being the one you can really hit it out of the park for a home run. If the bases are loaded it’s even better. You gotta be ready and you kinda need to know it’s coming. A good ball player always does. And it’s a thing of beauty to hear the crack of the ball on the bat and watch it fly.
I think it’s similar to life. The curveballs are coming. If we can settle in and wait, then nail it as it hits, we’re going to do better than just survive. We’ll thrive. And it’s possible. We might not hit every one, but isn’t it worth it to try?
