day 432 – head hunters

dodgeball is a fun sport when played properly but a dangerous one if played incorrectly, that’s the case for tier 3 games. needless to say, it was a really rough night full of head shots, poor and nonexistent reffing, undisciplined players who blatantly cheat. i was very agitated throughout the night when my head was aimed at countless time before one finally connected. having just suffered a concussion three weeks ago and an upcoming competition, i would feel absolutely outrageous if i suffer another just because players fail to understand the rules and safety of the game. i was just trying to do my executive due diligence and explicitly told off several players, there was no improvement

there are many challenges in life with all the ups and downs. it’s inevitable that we will cross paths with some people that you just can’t see eye to eye with. as i meet more and more people in all walks of life, i realize the importance to keep those who make a positive impact in my life. those who provide nothing but negativity and those only considered friends with benefits shouldn’t be kept around because they don’t matter. i noticed different stages of life will call for different circles of friends, some come and go but those who really matter will stick with me forever. from time to time, arguments may arise even with the whomever deemed important to you, but the main point is don’t let that get in the way of the relationship. it’s all about learning to forgive because who knows there may be times when you will also be hoping for forgiveness; in the end no one is perfect. just remember not to blow things out of propoertion, keep everything as simple as it can be because often, it is easier to forgive and move on than to hold a grudge long term. it may seem like a tall task in the heat of the moment, but once you look back, it is the logical thing to do. life is too short to always hold grudges and it’s never a good thing to put a valued friendship in jeopardy
