Congratulations to Andy Murray... he did not win in the final but he got to it all the same. We Brit's are extremely proud! (some would say about time too...lol)
A tennis match is a real test of endurance. In swimming, most events don't last very long... not over three hours anyway! It made me think of life and how we all endure and surpass obstacles to get to the next round...
2nd Uni/ job
3rd Relationship/ marriage
5th Family/ work life balance
Every stage of our lives has a different challenge. Along the way other things happen. Friends or family pass away, you have money or health issues, you lose sight of who you are and what you want from life. It's all very deep and meaningful...
To take it back to tennis. When you are given a chance to reach your lifetime ambition it's how you deal with it that makes you the better person. Win or lose - it does not matter. What counts is that you tried your best. That you gave it your all.
So, to take that to my life... I can honestly say that I try my best. To be a good person, to live life well, to care for my friends and family, to work hard to follow my dreams, to give to those in need... to not be selfish. I am happy with who I am. Are you?
Thank you Andy Murray for your courage and may you enjoy the repercussions... we all deserve a break!
