Before we get to my picks of the week let me ask you a question:
“How long does it take an average person to get a black belt?”
The answer is:
“An average person doesn’t get a black belt.”
There is a lot of truth in this little question and answer “game”, as there is so much devotion, discipline and and hard work involved to finally reach that goal. And it won’t end there.
It’s been a crazy week. Crazy in many ways. Crazy fun, crazy busy and crazy inspiring. Soon it’s time for our visitors to leave again unfortunately but before this moment comes they are doing what they also came here for: Compete in their sport. Today and tomorrow will be the big days. The moment they worked towards over the last couple of weeks. I’ve learned heaps from them over the last couple of days.
From people I didn’t know before or only met briefly. I’ve learned that you can open your house to someone you only met once. I’ve learned that the feeling I have about someone is right. I’ve learned how inspiring spending time with “strangers” can be and how quickly a friendship can develop. And I truly feel blessed for this experience. Now let’s all keep our fingers crossed for them. I really hope they will do well when competing.
I apologize for this post being so much different to my usual Pick Of The Week posts. It just had to be said.
Of course I’ve also tried to keep up with reading posts. Not as many as I would have usually. I was too busy introducing this little bit of our country to our friends and hopefully help create amazing memories. But I’ve found some really good posts, which I would love to share with you all here. Have a great weekend 🙂
What a great point… Look up, people!
