So, watching a baseball game. Baseball is of course a metaphor for life. Take the game I’m watching now. The Rangers are something like 10 games under 500. So, things have been going against them for a bit. BUT they have won six in a row, currently the hottest streak in either league.

They are poised very early in this game (2nd inning) to make it seven in a row. No homeruns, nothing flashy, just patience at the plate (the opposing pitcher walked in a run) and a lot of singles.

Lesson: Even when things aren’t going well and you’re not where you need to be, you can make strides to getting there and still have something special happen in dark times by being patient and focusing on the basics.

Thank you, baseball.
