Have Equanimity!

Lessons from the NET 🎾 The other day I got grumpy at my opposing captain putting a 3.5 level woman on line 2 in a 4.0 match and then also putting her BEST player on line 3!I have no excuse - but I know the reason. I have been having interrupted sleep for the last six weeks - I may be suffering from RLS - I am not sure yet. So my patience has worn thin.This lack of sleep has caused me to be reactive versus being calm. On (and off the court) it is imperative to have equanimity. Not...

The Perfect Partner?

Lessons from the NET 🎾 Happiness is not about finding "the perfect partner". It is about loving the partner you have!!!

Be Thankful!!!

Don't be so FOCUSED on the game and winning that you forget to ENJOY THE JOURNEY!!! This morning I am taking some time to write thank you cards to my favorites coaches, captain and a couple of my current doubles partners too.Sometimes we forget to stop, take a breath and enjoy THE NOW. If you paused and thought about tennis and the people that you have met - who puts a smile on your face.For me - being grateful for the people that have helped me be who I am is best shown with a hand written note. If you...
