Yesterday I was at my middle grandson's basketball game. There is nothing I like better than watching a team of boys have fun together while they grow as both teammates and people. They are out there having fun and learning many of life's lessons that will take them far in the years to come.
Yesterday I was reminded of one of those lessons. At halftime the parents are asked to participate in a fun easy competition of their own. It's different each week but both the parents and the kids really seem to enjoy it no matter what the challenge. I usually look on cheering and clapping but not participating in the actual activity. Yesterday my son decided it was my time to get involved and did a little more than just encourage me to get up and take a shot. So I did. I tossed the ball into the basket and guess what - I made it. I won a a lot more than a small bag of popcorn. It was a reminder that in life there is a time to sit and dream and then there is a time to get up and take chance.
If you have an opportunity to take a chance this week, this may be the time to take it. You never know what you might win.
When you share your talents and your dreams, magic happens. Let the magic begin!
Create the life you want to live.
