As a child, tried as I did, I never succeeded in learning to do a round -off flip flop. I learned the basics of dance but never mastered toe shoes. Girls’ basketball and volleyball were fun but I was not first or even second bench material. Here’s some other things that I tried but never succeeded in mastering.
As a child, I lost in dodge ball, I got tagged and was “it” a lot, I was short and wasn’t good at math. I could side stroke and swim with my head above water but could never dive very well.
As an adult, I failed at learning to swim with my head underwater. I tried racquetball because I was -get this- “too graceful” to get anywhere with it! LOL For many years I couldn’t wear contacts, which hindered sports activities. I had to quit jogging because of sore knees.
None of these were my strengths. Today we discuss accepting what our strengths are and capitalizing on those. Join me on Common Sense Civics and Citizenship. Link is on the homepage under “Watch New Videos Each Week.”
