My Life changes around the time of the Olympic Games!
I am not a sports person. I am not interested in playing sports myself, or in watching them.
But, something changes every 2 years when the Olympics are shown on TV.
In the summer, I watch the swimming events, the gymnastics, and other big events where they help us get to know the athletes. It is the people and their stories that I love. Feeling pride for my country, and feeling their thrilling victories with them or watching them cry in defeat.
In the winter, I love the ice skating and some of the other icy events.
After the Calgary games, they kept the facilities. When we were moving back east from California, we took a long way around the US and Canada. We stopped in Calgary for the day at the Calgary Olympic park, and it was awesome. http://www.winsportcanada.ca
So, I have no interest in sports in general. I do become a partner with my husband in rooting for the US athletes, and a part of the world as we watch the most popular reality tv ever created!
We can all relate to the feelings that the contestants display, and can learn from their courage and perseverance.
What do I remember as I watch the games and the interviews? Always get back to basics, do the work, and keep going no matter what. Shake off setbacks and you can win in the next event!!
