28 – 3

Meanwhile “We cannot always control everything that happens to us in this life, but we can control how we respond.” ~ Lionel Kendrick

During these uncertain times, it has been extremely hard to focus on the positives. However, we all believe and share one incredible “positive”, which is keeping the spark of wanderlust travel alive! And what we choose to focus on, grows. (Star Clipper)

28 – 3 Some of you may recognize these numbers immediately. I have them posted in front of me at my desk. I watch a great deal of sports. Health and Physical Education was my college degree, so, 28 – 3 resonates with me. This is the score at the half time of Super Bowl 51. Atlanta vs New England. Recently Tom Brady had an interview (with someone.. sorry I do not know who) in the Boston Globe, it resonated with me.

“On his competitive mind set Brady gave a famous example of how he approaches challenges in Super Bowl LI, “you can look at the situation and basically quit and say you know XXX it. We have no shot of winning or you can say, This is going to be an amazing comeback. When we come back from this, this is going to be the defining moment in a professional career.
 
I think when you shift your mind and think that way, it becomes very empowering as opposed to very discouraging. So, any time we are down in the game, I think ‘Man, if we come back and win this game, we’re the hero, rather than Oh XXX, we’re screwed. We have no shot”

So here I am 28 – 3.. my game is going to be exceedingly long. I have no idea when the clock will end the game. But like the New England Patriots we will win in overtime. All together. Stay well and stay smart. Stay home. Harriet
