Let’s be honest; coming back from an injury can both suck and be scary. I was hurt last my senior year last year, as I mentioned in a previous blog post “ The Journey to Recovery”. Today, was my first game back since I got hurt.
We played in my home state Dallas, TX at Southern Medithiost University (SMU). All my family and close friends of the family were there, so this was a great way to open up my senior career. I was nervous and overzealous and agreeably it showed. Ultimately I need up fouling out of the game in the fourth quarter. Overall the team played well against a team that should beat us badly. It was our first game and we only lost by seven points.
I feel like that was just a warm up game for me. A game where I could get all my butterflies and anxiousness out. I was just grateful to be back on the court after a full year. They said, “you never know how much you miss something until its gone”. I agree Things happen in life sometimes just to give me a reality check.
I feel like right now its hard to get back into the routine of things. eventually, everything will click all at once and it’ll be like I never left. So, I’m just going to thank God and keep moving forward. The best of me is yet to come.
