Positive Thinking

A lot of my friends have joked that when judging is over I will not have much to write about on my blog. Not true, but while I can write about judging I intend on taking full advantage of it!

Tomorrow, hundreds of livestock judgers in junior and senior college will fight for their fate at winning the 2013 American Royal. We all know that only one individual, and one team will become victorious. Prizes are not awarded for everyone. An average day is not recognized. Yet, we all hold the same fire in our hearts.

I think, more than anything else, livestock judgers (and competitors in general) have to be positive. But, here's the deal: positivity is not only hoping for the best, but believing whatever God chooses to give you IS the best - winning or losing.

Preparing day in and day out has brought a team bond and unbelievable joy to my heart. No  matter what happens tomorrow, everyone is champions at heart, if you choose to believe it. We all have to remember that the good fortune God chooses to bestow upon individuals should be handled humbly - with or without the trophy in hand.

Good luck tomorrow to all teams! And especially to my two favorites: Texas Tech Red Raiders and Butler Grizzlies! Go teams!

"Today, you are going to battle against your enemies. Do not be fainthearted. Do not be afraid. Do not panic. For, the Lord your God is the one who goes with you, to fight for you, fight against your enemies to give you victory." -Deuteronomy 20:3-4
