I saw a friend of mine over the weekend. She wanted to buy me a drink, to toast my recent State Title win. She was super sweet and I really absorbed the kind words, as was going through a tough time lately with the competitive side of pool I recently wrote about.
She has always been complimentary of my game. And I have always appreciate her support. I have also really enjoyed following her successes and pool journeys as well!
She told me I had "a stellar year."
I was like, um, it's only April and that's all I've done.
She explained, "I mean the last 12 months. All of your accomplishments."
I tried to again discount her, "Two of those were women's teams events."
"Yea, but you were still a part of those teams! And let's not forget you finished the year ranked SECOND on the OB Cues Ladies Tour."
Wow, I did have a great 12 months!!
She told me I am am inspiration to her. (blush)
It really meant a lot to me because I feel like my wins, accomplishments, and titles are not for myself. She kinda proved it right there for me. I feel like an I am an ambassador of the game, not just a player of the game. I like to help people and pool, and feel it's my niche.
A HUGE thank you to Julie for making my day, and reminding me what a great year I had.
Here we are toasting!!
