Biggest travel lesson..How to stay sane?… Don’t sweat the small stuff 

Last post focused on some negatives..this one I’ll touch on some of the good lessons travelling and sport has taught me. I’m naturally “that extra” person who’s a little more hyper than usual, worries about the little and big things and super picky that things are in place and organized. (Lil Miss Perfect) Well… forget that when traveling, things almost never go to plan and fussing NEVER helps the situation. My 1st and biggest life lesson I learnt from traveling was- Don’t sweat it, stay calm and let things be. Staying in control of the few things you actually have control of and leaving the rest becomes so so important (otherwise I’d prolly be mad by now). But truthfully, things always work out eventually. 

Next up travelling and sport affords many the opportunity to meet new people experience different cultures and keeps you open to the many different ways in which people may use to achieve the same task or even more surprisingly how similar things could be. 

There are a few things that can bring people of all walks of life together..music.. food.. but sport…sport has the power to change the world like no other -Nelson Mandela 

I’ve seen how sport can teach young and old valuable life lessons, build character, awaken souls to transform individuals into passionate beings, teach respect for self, things and others and take people places they only once dreamed of. The list could go on and on…sport isn’t always about winning or losing either..sport has a way of developing minds and creating resilient, courageous people who are confident and sure of themselves. 

Engaging in sport can teach many lessons of life that can’t be taught in any other way…

“Sport has the power to change the world. It has the power to inspire, it has the power to unite people in a way that little else does. It speaks to youth in a language they understand. Sport can create hope where there once was only despair.” 

– Nelson Mandela
