A Fresh Start

IV’E FINISHED MY EXAMS!! What a feeling… The remaining few minutes of the last exam felt like a lifetime and when it was finally over, I felt free.
So what have I been up to?
Well firstly, sleep, and lots of it, throw in plenty of Netflix (minus the chill, working on that,) and have joined a new gym.
Was all prepped for my NPL trial last Saturday. However, this time it was not meant to be but upon reflection I am really content with the fact that this is my fresh start. No time to dwell or feel down about it as I live in hope for September and the chance to study at uni alongside trialling for Severn Stars and Worcester Reds. It’s kind of given me a new focus. This has given me the drive and ambition that I probably needed with a new vision. I can honestly say I think I need this break from netball, however short it may be. Using the gym for my own purpose of getting fitter for the beach has been quite nice to do (#beachbodypending.) It also gave me chance to hook up with friends from my past at other clubs in a versatility tournament. What a laugh we had despite playing in 32degree heat, and coming second was a bonus too! I played netball with no pressure for once and it actually felt really good. Although it was competitive at times (especially against the mens team,) it gave me the chance to remember why I fell in love with the game in the first place. Therefore what I am saying to anyone reading this, don’t see rejection as failure. See it as an opportunity to reignite your love for what you do.
So. Over the next few weeks I’m going to relax, revitalise, recover and aim for the next fresh start which I can do with the support of my family and friends. This last year has taught me a lot about myself. It has enabled me to see that keeping my priorities clear and vocalising how I feel is the most important way forwards to a bright future.
