Careful where you step.
So yesterday in gym class I either a) tripped over my own hockey stick b) tripped over some other guy’s hockey stick or c) tripped over my own two feet and badly (and I mean really really badly (my worst ever)) sprained my ankle (It’s now a multicoloured splotchy bruised and inflamed mess). Given that the odds are 2/3 my fault, I blame myself. I feel really stupid for this injury. It reminds me of the time when I was 11 and I did a cartwheel in my room and had to get 9 stitches… Yea, dumb, I know. I even had to miss my own pool party! Like I watched others enjoy themselves while they swam and I sat on the sidelines… Wow, depressing. It didn’t seem that way at the time though… Anyways, all this to say that I learnt that sometimes (well most times) it isn’t a good thing to go too quickly. Sometimes it’s better to watch, think and then do, contrary to Nike’s motto. Sometimes it isn’t better do “just do it”.
