Life’s rough sometimes.

The last couple of week’s have been tough. There is so much going on in the world these days, its hard to keep up and its hard to stay optimistic.

Im bored, because COVID. I want things to go back to normal, but I also want everyone to be safe and healthy.

Southern California, where I live, has been going through a heat wave and because this girl has no AC, its been a struggle.

First world problems, I know, but the heat is killer on my motivation to do literally anything.

I also was really determined to get more into baseball this season, but I’m an Angels fan and welllll, the season has been a bit of a disappointment.

I love sports but I’m not a big fan of the whole sometimes your team loses….

I don’t know how to deal when my team loses, so I decided that maybe I will give baseball a try in 2021 instead.

Luckily, the Rocks in the Outfield boys will keep me up to date in the meantime.

So what is the point of this? The point is that this year has been fucking hard. (Sorry for cussing Mom! My mom might be Locker Room Sports biggest fan).

With the news this weekend of the passing of Chadwick Boseman (Wakanda Forever), I’ve just about had it this year.

Rest in power, King.

I am just about ready to cancel 2020. Lets skip to next year then try again…

Then, today I saw this:

I remembered that my favorite sport is almost back! I repeat, Football is almost back!

I’m ready for Sundays spent on the couch, with a beer, watching football.

We’re also entering my favorite time of the year. (I’m basic, I know.)

So wtf is the point of this article?

The point is to say that sometimes life is rough. Sometime’s our favorite teams lose. Sometimes we lose our heroes too soon.

It’s okay to feel down sometimes. It is okay to feel unmotivated on occasion.

It is also important to remember that mental health is important.

I highly recommend, if you haven’t already, that you go and read Noah’s article on mental health.

I took a couple of weeks to let myself be, but now I’m back.

I’m choosing to look forward to football and to be positive.

Here’s to the rest of 2020.
