Lessons from Football

Sharing football games (and other fun stuff) with people you love creates happy pathways in your brain. In this often sad-looking world, we really need all the JOY we can find. God wants us to feel joyful!

Remember:
--In life, as in football, you play hard and make some really GREAT plays! Let yourself feel good about those!

--OK, so you will make some mistakes; learn from those and then start playing again. If you get knocked down, get up again and keep on playing.

--Run TOWARD the ball…not away from it! Grab that ball and hang onto it.

--Know that having the ball means that some other people are going to chase you and try to get it away from you; however, it’s well worth the struggle. : )

--Life is a TEAM SPORT. See and value the good-heartedness in your teammates, in your family members…and in yourself.

--Speak words of LIFE to yourself and to your team members.
We are RESILIENT. 

We are STRONG and getting stronger. 
We are BETTER TOGETHER
THIS IS THE GOOD PART!

--As Jimmy G (San Francisco 49ers QB) tells his teammates: “Let disappointment fuel you.” Do your best. AND THEN, YOU WIN!

Know this: Unthinkably GOOD things can happen, even late in the game. So—keep looking for that ball!
