“It is a far, far better thing that I do, than I have ever done”

on February 3, 2014

In order to be successful we must be willing to sacrifice. Once we are successful we see how all of the time and energy we sacrificed was worthwhile, and if we aren’t successful, then we know that we have to keep sacrificing until we are. In  A Tale of Two Cities by Charles Dickens, Sydney Carton sacrifices himself to give Lucie Manette a life she loved. He was willing to give his life for another person and it really shows how much Carton loved Lucie even though he knew that she could never be his. As an athlete, I know how much sacrifice is required to play a sport. You have to sacrifice your time, energy, and body towards winning a game or having a good practice. Practicing six days a week definitely takes up a lot of time, but it also helps me manage my time wisely. Energy is also something you have to sacrifice. Even if you are tired from the night before, it is important to put all of your energy into practice or a game so that you don’t let down your teammates. Your body can also take a beating. If you play a contact sport, bruises and sprains and soreness become part of your everyday life. Although all of these things seem like they’re not worth it, playing a sport that you love to play is so rewarding and for me at least, it is one of my great sources of joy.blogpicok
