The college football and NFL seasons have finally begun, and for millions of us fans we can finally travel, prepare, tailgate, and cheer for our favorite teams on their pursuit of the playoffs and of the title(s). After months of preparations, coaches and players can actually begin to play and live out their dreams. But, at the season’s end, many of these same coaches and players will say good-bye to their team they have put so much blood, sweat and time into. My question is what will they miss the most?
If history can give us some insight, the answer is “RELATIONSHIPS”. Time and time again we have seen coaches and players endure epic battles, brutal injuries, and bitter defeats without shedding a single tear. When the time comes to leave a team behind, these same tough and courageous individuals cry in front of millions of people.
Some may seem this as a judgment or criticism towards those emotional individuals; on the contrary, this is a display of admiration and respect of how important “RELATIONSHIPS” are towards happiness. The same scenario is true for so many of us ordinary people with ordinary careers. When it comes time for us to move on to something different, it is the relationships that are often the hardest thing to leave behind.
In conclusion, to “Achieve Happiness”, cherish your good relationships and spend plenty of time nurturing and enjoying them.
