The Super Bowl is past, the Olympics are here, and baseball spring training has begun. These are all topics around my house as we talk about our favorite sports and marvel at what people can accomplish. We cheer when amazing plays go right, we gasp when someone falls or crashes, we wonder if they will get up and try again, we can feel their frustration and pain, and we can hope that they will do it better next time. These are life lessons. Whether we are talking about building a Lego structure that collapses, leading a class that doesn’t go so well, or crashing on an Olympic ski run. How do we pick up and try again? Or, DO we pick up and try again. There is always an option of walking away from something when it isn’t going right, and then there is the option of learning from our failures and mistakes, in order that we might apply them to new adventures in the future.
