WaterfallRecently I was able to hear Maya Moore, WNBA player and Gold Olympic Medalist speak to a group from Big Brothers Big Sisters. A young person asked her how she feels when she plays basketball. She answered, “Basketball is my passion. When I am playing basketball I feel alive.” Her answer impressed me for two reasons. Firstly, she is in her early 20’s and knows and can express what her passion is and what makes her feel alive. Secondly, she has poured her life into making it a reality.
It made me take a moment to pause and think, “What makes me feel alive?” and “What am I doing in my life to nurture and honor this?”
It is easy to get caught up in the details of everyday life, and lose sight of what really energizes us and makes us feel alive. Maya Moore inspired me with her speech to live wholly and focus on what gives energy and connects us to the flow of life.
