If At First You Don't Succeed..

We have trouble my friends, with a capital T and that rhymes with P and that stands for, yes, POOL. Not the kind that you sit by in the summer with a cold beverage in hand. I'm talking about the kind where you stand by a pool table with cue in hand. I'm talking about the game I attempted to play at Jillian's last night, and despite a very encouraging group of friends, I wasn't very good. OK, I got a few balls in the pocket, still, compared to everyone else, I had a lot to learn. But here's the thing, if you don't challenge yourself, you miss out on a lot. When I was younger, I had the opportunity to play touch football. Initially, I would say, “no thanks” and watch on the sidelines while everyone else played. I just never had a lot of confidence when it came to athletics. However, one day, I decided to play, and for the first few snaps, I looked pretty awful. I persevered , though, and before the game was finished, I ended up catching a pass and running in for a touchdown. I felt so good that I had given it a shot. That's why I played pool last night, with the realization that I could still laugh and have fun, even if my game wasn't perfect. I know that the more I participate, the better I'll get and the more confident I'll be. Hmm, what's next? Tennis anyone?
