What's up everybody!
I hope this post finds everyone well and you are excited for the upcoming holidays. I know I am and I am lucky we actually get a week break so I will be able to go back home to North Carolina at the end of December. I also hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving. Fortunately, even though I am thousands of miles away I was able to enjoy a wonderful Thanksgiving meal here.
A very generous couple and avid fans of the team, Steve and Jet Roeske, cook dinner for the Americans on the team here from time to time. Steve is originally from Milwaukee, Wisconsin making him the second person I have ever met in my life from there. Jet is Dutch and is absolutely one of the best cooks I have ever met. The meal was nothing short of amazing. She really went above and beyond to prepare such a huge meal for 10 people which made me feel as if I was right at home with all my favorite foods. I am very grateful for their hospitality.
First as always, I would like to thank the Lord for giving me the ability to live out my dream. It has been a month since I last checked in with you guys, in between my happiness has stayed consistent.
Everyday brings different challenges, which I have learned to embrace with a positive attitude. Being a professional athlete comes with a lot of ups, and downs. Nevertheless your approach, focus, attitude, and goals should never fluctuate. Maintaining these vital personal attributions is not always the easiest thing to do, especially when you are a very passionate person. However, focusing on these characteristics bring an extreme balance to your mental stability and daily life.
