I saw a T-shirt yesterday with a picture of a baseball’s seam and this saying underneath it:
“Life Starts With The First Pitch”
I didn’t think much about it at the time, but the more I thought about it, the more pronounced it became.
Now I’m not a man who’s geared up for giving speeches - so I won’t. But if you think about it, starting something with your life, regardless of where you are on your journey, does start with the first pitch, the first handshake, the first introduction to someone, the first job application, the first of anything…
So, without speeches, if you find yourself needing a little “something”, let that “something” be the first pitch of your entire life. Kind-a flows, you know. Nothing fancy, just in-your-gut stuff. Step into the batter’s box - wherever you are right now , take a few practice swings, then look for that slow moving beauty that’s served up on a silver platter - and give it a ride ( you know what I mean). It may not come your way today, tomorrow, or even next week - but it’s a come’n! Just be patient, wait for it, you know it’s gonna arrive, you just know it.
