My dilemma with tennis is real. I have played this game for years. I’ve talked about it before here on my blog. The outlet for me has been critical at times! I first picked up a racket way back when my youngest son went to Kindergarten when I lived in Arizona. I LOVED it immediately and have enjoyed competing in league play and tournaments. For the passed year, It has been a struggle getting to practices and workouts because of the demands on my time trying to run my blog. I’ve been frustrated trying to get there, and then when I do, all I’m thinking about is what I have to do when I get back home.
I keep telling myself things will slow down. I’ll say in my mind that next week, or next month, or in a FEW months I’ll be less busy and be able to come and practice. But…….it’s just not happening. I’m in such a struggle of whether or not I need to give it up for a while. I don’t want to, but I want to. I miss my association with all of my friends. I miss the diversion. What is more important? Is it better that I continue and let my work stuff go so I have time? Or is it better to let it go for now, and be LESS stressed with work stuff? I wish I knew the answer!
I know for sure though, that I won’t ever give up tennis completely. I LOVE the sport too much. Is there a way to play without going to practices and workouts? I’ve always wondered why there are women who spend time at practice and then don’t compete. I always said I wouldn’t ever do that. But……now I find myself considering that very option. Do you ever feel this way about things in your life? Trying to find a balance is one of the most difficult things to do.
In the mean time…..I’ll continue to try and figure it all out. My Tuesday practices are the only thing I’m doing right now, and are often missed due to being out of town or tied up in meetings. Hopefully I’ll be able to come to a happy medium sometime soon!
