Last year I began watching the ROYALS, again. Back in the 80’s we were living in Kansas City area. Our kids were just babies, Bill was building the company, and the Royals were winning! It was an exciting time! George Brett was the ‘Man’.
Last year, I started watching them as they won the Wild Card and it felt like I had gone back in time, made me feel 20 or so, years younger. Crazy!
This year, since Bill does work in KC and our kids live there, we have been able to go back and forth and have been to many of the KC games! FUN FUN FUN!
It has been amazing. As I’ve watched, I’ve realized that part of what I enjoy so much is watching them play as a ‘Team’. I know, of course they are a team, but this is different. They are tight, they know how each other responds, they have each other’s back. Really, it may better be called a Baseball family. I think they love each other and support each other, and it shows! The George Brett days were wonderful, but this is a whole new level. It isn’t about one person, it is about all of them. They all play and contribute, and they do it great! The Royals have character, heart, and they love the game!
Here are a few things I’ve noticed.
Baseball and life lessons (and it’s not just ‘chew and spit’ …. LOL)
To be a Winner… in Baseball and Life takes
Be willing to grow and change

Many of you know from FB that Bill and I were at the final game of the playoffs for the Royals. It was exciting to see it happen, to be part of the thrill and be there LIVE! Yes, the KC Royals are going to the World Series!!! Whoo Hoo! I feel 25 years younger as it has stirred all these exciting feelings of the early 80s. Bill and I lived in KC, the kids were just toddlers, the Royals and George Brett were the THING!
Overall I am not a big sports fan, (just for the Royals =), but I think there are life lessons that we can compare with sports.
I think life is a constant, day in and day out series of choices, to be positive or negative. ‘Life’ is going to throw curve balls, fast balls, you are going to get a few walks and sometimes the ball is going to hit you. You will have times when you are going to knock them out of the park, bunt, and sometimes feel like you strike out. Right? My question to you is this, are you going to keep stepping up to the plate? Are you going to live life with the expectancy of getting that Home Run or are you just going to choose to stay on the bench?
We do have choices, and over the next several weeks I am going to be talking about how to live life in a Positive space, no matter what. We all have ‘stuff’ . . . but it is what you do with the ‘stuff’ that matters. Your attitude, your frame of mind, your choice.
‘Not half Bad…” have you heard that saying? So I guess if something is ‘Not half bad…it must be half good, right?
Is your glass half empty, or half full?
Is life full of hope and promise, or is it just existence?
Are you walking in faith and hope or in defeat?
Is the world out to get you, or are you going for it all?
‘Til next time –
Question: Do you consider yourself Positive person . . . or Negative?
