PEACELOVEBASKETBALL: The Evolution of Women’s Basketball

A lot has changed in women’s basketball since I first hit the court. Check out my article, Yes We Can Play at Stack Sports. The piece looks back at the history of women’s basketball and shares how changes such as, moving to a full-court game with dribbling, using a smaller ball and the addition of the three-point line have all taken place during my lifetime…[READ HERE]

PEN TO PAPER: A New Normal

Since Covid, life has been quite different for most of us. Many have lost family and friends, or had them fall deathly ill. Many of us have spent a lot of time at home and sequestered from much of the world. But now as the majority of the population begins to get vaccinated and Covid case numbers decline, what does it feel like for you as life returns to a new normal?

I know I’m happy to get out and see more people, but I am still hesitant when I go into a store where people are not wearing masks. I have close family and friends who are vulnerable and ones who could be negatively effected by a positive test, even if they don’t get sick. (Think of athletes who have missed out on games, matches and money after testing positive). Covid is still around, and though I’m vaccinated, I feel like I should do my part and be more careful. But what does careful mean these days?

I’m not sure. I don’t have the answers. But I do know that I’m trying to do my best to move forward and live a happy and full life in the new normal, and I hope you are too.

PEN TO PAPER: How You Do Anything Is How You Do Everything?

My husband loves the quote, “How you do anything is how you do everything.” I don’t always agree. I know that when there is something that I care about I put more effort toward it. When I was coaching I was all in, worked to be the very best I could be at my job, but then I’ll admit, other parts of my life suffered a bit. I was once a perfectionist. I even used to rewrite my math homework. Though it might not be for the best, I have learned to let some things go. I just can’t keep up. There is no way that I could do everything the way that I would like it to be done, because I also like to do too many things.

How about you?

WRITING PROMPT #1: Put “How you do anything is how you do everything” at the top of the page or blank document and start writing.

WRITING PROMPT #2: I always….
