|Stress Management ~ Training Tips|
Last year was our first year to experience a state competition. I saw how exhausting it can be to train hard and compete with so many other talented athletes. The coaches were tough but fair. Both my daughter and I learned that while we may not have always understood the process and journey that lead to their victory, in the end the reward was well deserved and wonderfully sweet.
This year is proving to be equally challenging in terms of getting to know and understand new coaching techniques, challenging personalities, and figuring out once again where we fit into the puzzle. As a parent, I am coming to terms with when to back off and when to participate. There's so much I'd like to contribute, but you can only offer. Learning to let go is a process, so be gentle with yourself or your ego will take a hit.
I take my cues from my daughter, who has become an incredible advocate for herself and for others. The truth is, there will always be challenges whether in sports, business, or personal life experiences. Your ideas will not always be met with the enthusiasm you imagined or hoped to experience. Embracing all the variables that occur is part of our children's development, and our role is to listen and be supportive. Will our children always experience fairness, mature interactions with other adults, and equal treatment among team mates? No. Will they learn to speak up for themselves and recognize their personal boundaries? Absolutely!
