Queens Services PAX are heading into a tough week.
The start of the wrestling season is normally one of my favorite times of the year. And this year is was a rough week to say the least. Between Covid protocols and school changes it was not a smooth week to say the least. I had to reassure some kids that the things that are happening right now are not their fault. Getting a hair cut is not suppose to be a dangerous task.
Talking with Coach Froendt I congratulated him not only on a great season because of the championship but also because of how he navigated the Covid pandemic to keep his team together. He simply told me that I need to “release control of what is happening and of all those exterior things you cannot control”. We are all facing a very tough situation with so much happing and changing in what we cannot control. The only thing we can control is how we respond. Our attitude and effort. So as long as we can show up and do out best every day then that is all we need.
