A Million Steps

I believe in softball, hitting the ball as hard as I possibly can across the field as if my heart depends on it, catching the big ball in my sweaty mitt, and playing my heart on the friendly field.

I believe in softball, hitting the ball as hard as I possibly can across the field as if my heart depends on it, catching the big ball in my sweaty mitt, and playing my heart on the friendly field. One small thing can pull you a million steps toward your goal. My goal is taking softball one step forward toward the right direction. I believe in softball because the terrific ball game is just like my life.

 

I can hit the bad things away some days and sometimes it's harder to do and I fail, but at least I tried. When I am up to bat my body is shaking from head to toe. My mouth is chattering and I am nervous. When I hit the ball all of the terrible things shatter and leave my life forever. Anything that I regret or wish to do over again leaves my body and I can still remember them, but I get a clean slate. Catching the ball is a whole different story. When I catch the ball my body is filled with joy and my heart is bumping out of my chest like a rock. I catch the good things and keep them close to my heart. On that friendly field there are horrible and terrific things floating around in the warm, summer air. As I run around the bases step by step my heart pumps with joy. First base, second base, and third base are stepping stones that I need to be able to reach my goal, home plate. Sometimes the small stones are easy to get, like when you get to just walk, but sometimes they're harder to achieve. You have to get all muddy and slide on the rocky sand just to get to the goal. Every one has obstacles in their life and mine is softball. You have to reach a long way just to get there. Sometimes you fall down, but sometimes you make it all the way there. First base, second base, third base, and home plate I run around and around and put 110% into all of it, my life and the game.

 

My team and my supporting coach are just like my loving family. When I do well they are proud of me in everything I do, not just softball. When I do bad they are still proud of me and push me along to reach my goal no matter what my goal is. I listen to them and keep moving forward. I appreciate everything my team, family, coach, and my dad does for me. I can't believe anyone can care so much about a person that they put you before themselves. My life is a ball game and my team is my family. Softball has influenced and impacted my life so much that I will never let it go. My life is just like the game. Sometimes I fall down other times I do great. I will use softball for the rest of my life and always remember that I need to follow my dreams no matter how big they are. Now every time I am on that friendly field I will remember that you need to move forward towards the right direction and that anything can pull you towards your goal. Sometimes it is easy to get there other times you need to take a million steps.

 

I believe in softball.
