I stewed for 24 hours about yesterday's tennis fiasco. But it only took a 10 minute walk with my friend Sarah today to give me a major revelation:
I am a single's player.
That's it! That is my life wrapped up perfectly.
I don't like depending on others. I don't like letting other people down. I like things my way. I like to be in control.
Even looking back on my sports of choice - swimming and track - I realize that I prefer to work alone.
But this is more about tennis or sports really. It is about how I tick. I think that is why I don't feel so vulnerable or lost without Chris around - because I am hyper-independent.
Despite all of that, I love it that Chris and I can both do our own thing, (run our own races so to speak), and yet still be a part of the team. Now, where's my trophy?
