Energy and persistence conquer all things.

I’m writing this post as I sit with my family, watching the KC Royals personify this perfect quote by Benjamin Franklin. Although I am a lifetime resident of ‘The Paris of the Plains’ I’m not really a big fan of watching sports on TV but these games have even caught my attention.

What I’ve seen as in these games the past few weeks is, I think, a lesson that we can take away from the series. I see these young men working hard, pushing themselves to the limit, hanging in there even when they encounter difficulty. I can’t imagine the pressure they must be facing – but they’re doing it!

And I feel … Inspired

I find myself considering where I can push a little harder, where I can be a little more persistent. I won’t ever play in a World Series game but I can do my things a little better. I can give a little more. I can win.

What about you?
