Just as in Baseball when the Pitcher throws a curve ball to get the Batter to swing and miss, Life also throws a curve ball at us from time to time. This curve ball comes to us at every cross road we come to at our paths of our journey of life.
When we come to these cross roads and we have these life events happening to us, we become clouded in our judgements and can’t see the movement of the ball as it gets closer to us, we become out of focus and can’t seem to regain it, so we can swing and make contact with the ball, when the life events are in control then we are in control and can see every rotation of the curve ball.
In the game of Baseball when a player is in a slump, usually means there is something wrong with his approach to the game, or the way he is swinging at the baseball, then the player tries to do too much in order to get out of the slump, than all he is really doing is hurting his game more so, because he is not focusing on the things he needs to focus on, like watching and seeing the rotation of the curve ball, that is about to get into range for a good swing and good contact on the ball, so he can give his team a chance to win the game.
Life for all of us as we walk our paths of our journey, is kind of similar to a Ball Player, only that to a ball player it is a game, to us it is reality and who we become along our journey through life. The concept is similar, just that one has a huge effect on us as a person. These life events are what gets us out of focus, so when the curve ball of life comes to us, we can’t see the spin or the rotation of the ball as it approaches us, which makes us swing and miss all the time.
With these life events and us not handling them correctly, makes for very rough paths along our journey of life. These events will always be there, it is us that have to deal with them properly, when we do deal with them properly, not only will our paths along our journey be smoother, but we will always see the spin and the rotation of the curve ball, to which we will always swing and hit the curve ball, out of this park called life.
” A curve ball before it reaches the plate, will have a spin and a rotation to it, you have to focus on the ball in order to hit the ball for a great length”
” Life’s curve ball is a bit different, but the concept of to focus on whats in front of you, is very much the same, as we all walk this journey through life”
