Give People the Benefit of the Doubt
Today - I am SO proud of myself. We had a nice match with two sweet ladies - however TWICE on GAME POINT the ball was called out and they were clearly IN!
Now firstly - I am 100% sure that they think that they saw it out - and it wasn't intentional. They were just running and maybe misjudged that I had put a lot of topspin on it and it landed in. And even if that's not the truth - it served me to believe that.
So instead of getting upset, calling line judges, getting them defensive and ruining my day on the courts - I just kept my mouth SHUT and moved on swiftly to the next point. I was able to move back into GRATITUDE for being on the court - with my sweet partner - at a gorgeous tennis club - with perfect weather - and in good health!!! I looked down at my new heart and rackets bracelet - and smiled.
Scores: 3-6, 7-5, 7-6. (We won 7-0 in the tie break)
Crazy fun - and I'm so glad that I didn't allow the moment to be damaged by negative and blaming thoughts and behaviors!!! Life is SO MUCH better when you give people the benefit of the doubt - ESPECIALLY IF THEY DON'T DESERVE IT!
Win or Lose - BLiSS is the most important thing to me!
