I’m not a soccer fan for many reasons. Some too personal to put in my blog but the main reason is I’m not a huge sports fan. I do however like to watch the Olympics, Super Bowl, the World Cup, and Wimbledon. I happened to see the last US game during the World Cup and their defeat made me think a little bit.
I was thinking, not about the loss but about how far the U.S. team has come. I remember when I was in high school they were just starting the girls soccer team. So just a mere 25 years ago soccer was still pretty new sport in the United States. I never thought in the past that the U.S. team could stand up to the year is South American teams that have been playing the sport for generations. But here we are today, 2014, and look at what they’ve accomplished. I think about this in the context of our own lives and what comes to mind is: show up, put in the work and dream it, believe it, achieve it!
