My Great Win

serena18.jpg I just have four weeks left at Simmons and it is soon the end of a first journey as a freshman. Everyone is now really stressed with exams, papers, lab practicals.... but hopefully we all found something to release all that stress.

I found it in tennis. This past weekend, we played Endicott College and we had a great win 9-0. We all played great!!! I usually get really frustrated when stuff is not going the way I want them to go.

On saturday, I felt like a new player, because I went out of my comfort zone and focused on myself instead of outside distractions like frustration. I was able to control my emotions no matter if I made a mistake or missed a shot.

My performance was the best so far because I learnt how to accept my mistakes and move on. I AM SO PROUD!!!!!!!!!!!! :D

Quote of the day:

" Do not brood over your past mistakes and failures as this will only fill your mind with grief, regret and depression. Do not repeat them in the future." - Swami Sivananda
