In thinking about New Year’s resolutions, it came across my mind to ask the question, how many people are really “in charge” of their own lives. I know, it is way too cold to ask such a deep question like this, however, when we stop to think about improving our lives or making resolutions, this question may be a great place to start. Let me go a little deeper with this: Do you control what you eat? Do you control how you spend your free time? Do you control the people that you associate with? Do you control the decisions that affect you? Wow, just a few of the many questions that we need to ask ourselves.
It is true, there are some things that we do not get to be in charge of, for example, our work place, a student at school, or a son or daughter in the household. I am not saying that you need to go out and “take charge” of everything in your life, but what I am saying is , what you can control and take charge of, you ought to. Sometimes, we see student athletes that have no “charge” in their lives. When they make the next step to college, they can not make it simply due to the fact that they have no “take charge” capacity built into their life. Obviously, we have seen many adults that are in the same situation.
Well, just as we tell our athletes, it is never too late to take a look at where you are and where you want to go with the things in your life that you can control. Think about little things: what do I eat, how do I talk to others, how my free time is spent, who do I spend my time with, and lastly, am I affecting others in a positive way. When we all can slow down enough to ponder these thoughts, I believe we will be amazed on what and how we can change for the better……
It is great to see so many Warriors out there doing so well. We want to send our deepest appreciation to both Ronnie and Carl Fisher. Both have and will continue to serve the City and the youth of Huber Heights with all they have. Oh, and by the way, they are both True Warriors from the beginning and may there never be an ending……ONCE A WARRIOR…ALWAYS A WARRIOR! Jay Minton Athletic Director
