Sometimes it just doesn’t seem real.
Aren’t those just numbers on a board, or ticks on a stopwatch?
Just what are we getting from all this?
Sure, we aren’t exactly solving the problems of the world out there, but sometimes challenges and competitions just need to exist for their own sake.
We need to be reminded.
It’s easy to keep things the way they are, to go through the motions. We have to remember what it feels like to not be satisfied with our lot in life. The joy of victory and the pain of defeat remind us of what it’s like to risk it all for a dream.
So Thanks goes to you, Team Canada, and all Olympic Athletes. Thanks for teaching us all to dare to be great.
