Mindfulness prepares us for the not so wonderful times.
.
.
Life seems easy when we are triumphant, much different when crisis arrives.
.
.
In baseball metaphor: Hitting a home run in the bottom of the ninth to win the series is easy.
.
.
Making an error that loses the series, remains until death as an anchor.
.
.
An Example: The Michigan punter who lost the game against rival Michigan State. The social media outrage is enormous for a 19 year old kid. ESPN replays that play over and over to a shocked audience.
.
.
He will carry this and be ridiculed the rest of his life.
.
.
The thrill of winning can change to the agony of defeat.
.
.
And this is only a game.
.
.
Letting go is important in sports also.
