The power of music

It is amazing how a song can take you back to a certain memory or two that you have on a event.

‘Cause these are the days worth livin’
These are the years we’re given
And these are the moments
These are the times
Let’s make the best out of our lives

When I hear this song, it reminds me of making the best of the time I have. I remember back about 6 years ago when I had never played hockey. I really wanted to play, but I didn’t have the means to do so. Now that I am playing, I have a whole new appreciation for the game and myself. I am making the best out of my life right now. I may not be the best goalie out there, but I am going to have fun playing. I have accomplished more than I had ever thought possible. At one point, I felt like I was running from my demons when it came to playing. I always felt I had something to prove and to “earn” a spot on a team. Now, I am playing for the fun of playing.

My 8 championships are a very high accomplishment. I know I will get a few more before I am done playing, but I am done baseing my success on how many trophies I have lifted. I have so many fond memories of the last 4+ years, and I don’t regret what I have done to get to where I am at now.
