Roadmap to Success

 
Little brother had the opportunity to give wrestling a try this season. He didn’t win any championships or go to state, but he did stick with it and gave it his all. He improved with time and hard work, got in shape, and I think he even surprised himself.
Wrestling is balance, agility, hand-eye coordination, flexibility, positioning, strength, speed, footwork, hustle, mental focus, mental toughness, core strength, concentration, and endurance.
As a mom it’s hard to watch your child get thrown like a hay bale. It’s hard to sit back and let them learn to figure things out for themselves. It’s also an enormous joy when one day, like someone flipped a switch, they come out on top. I couldn’t be more proud. I am his biggest fan!
 

I’m so glad he gave it a try. He walked off that mat with self-confidence, work ethic, respect, humility and a roadmap to success.

 
I guess that makes me on official "wrestling mom", huh?!
Well, I accept, wholeheartedly.
