It's been about 3 weeks since I last picked up my tennis racquet. The inactivity was tied in part to the holidays and to the current cold streak and to not having consistent access to an indoor space.

So last night I joined the local group that has a number of chances to play indoors over the winter. I had a great time being the weakest player in the group all night...not something I enjoy at all. (Blame my competitive nature on this). I got better as the night progressed, but still, it would have been nice to be the best player.... emoticon

Anyway it's morning and my body is sore. So I guess I got a workout . So if I couldn't be the superstar last night at least I can feel like one today.

What was good however was that I got to meet some great new people who love tennis as much as I do and now I can begin to find a group of folks to play with on a more consistent basis. That's all good in my book. I also have some idea of the skills I will need to work on if I am to get my skills up to a more competitive level. So it was a great night for the reality check. So there were things I did well...those I can work to make better and the weaknesses, I can work on bettering those as well.

Life lesson learned!

    Appreciate your "re-frame" as you wrote. I loved that you shifted from what didn't feel good about the evening to all the great benefits you gained. A good reminder....I too want to be 'best' although tennis is not my game emoticon

    Awesome. Remember tennis is a gentlemen's game -- a social game.
