Have Fun

Today is the day. I am experiencing a whirlwind of emotions. Some nervous, some excited, but strangely, all different emotions than I have ever experienced. 

About a month ago, I shared with you my decision to "come out of retirement" just for this one tournament. I am still not sure why I am doing it, but there is no turning back now. By the end of this day, I will be halfway around the world preparing to battle it out for gold! 

Unlike the past twenty or so years of my sport career, I have a completely different outlook on this tournament. This time, there is no pressure. No expectations. Just me, having fun, doing what I love. 

So often, we forget why we started and how we felt before all the "pressure." Whether it is sports, jobs, or relationships, we need to look back and remember what really matters. Remember why you enjoyed playing sports or why you chose your profession. Remember why you fell in love with that special someone or why you went back to college.

No pressure. Have fun and enjoy. Again.
