“As long as man stand in his own way, everything seems to be in his way.”

“As long as man stands in his own way, everything seems to be in his way.” — Ralph Waldo Emerson

For those of us who deeply knew Jodi, this quote captures the essence of her competitive mindset.  It didn’t matter if the competition fiercely held her underwater, swam to out-touch her finish, excelled her in academics or metastasized cancerous cells in her spine — she never allowed doubts, fears, or “what ifs” get in her own way.

What’s getting in your way? Do you see circumstances or the abundance of possibilities?  I’d love to know . . .  please share your comments.

* Writing this post during the excitement of a new school year — today, Jodi’s Dad assumes a new position, head football coach of The Perkiomen School and the start of pre-season camp.  Without a doubt, she would be most proud to share her father (her biggest fan) with a team focusing on possibilities.
