Day 20 – Friday Night Lights

It’s Friday night and for Texas that means Friday Night Lights…

Football being played all over the state this evening…so in honor of Friday and Texas and Football I bring you Coach Taylor:

“Being perfect is not about that scoreboard out there, it’s not about winning.  It’s about you, and your relationship to your family, yourself, and your friends.  Being perfect is about being able to look your friends in the eye, and know that you didn’t let them down because you told them the truth.  And that truth is that you did everything you could – there wasn’t one more thing you could have done.  Can you live in that moment?  As best you can, with clear eyes, and love in your heart.  With joy in your heart.  If you can do that, then you’re perfect.”

And not just on the football field but in all of our lives – the good, the bad, and the ugly..leave it all out on the field.

Clear eyes, full hearts, can’t lose.

Until tomorrow,

Miss a day – read more “The Crazy Things We Do”
