Been sleeping for most of the day, I’ve not even done much reading which is a shock. I did see the last test of the Lions v All Blacks and it was a hell of a test match, with the game ending in a draw and as a result so did the test series. Both teams didn’t really know what to make of it at the end, they’d given everything and I think we would have been happy to play extra time and finish it. Quite a few people predicting a 3-0 whitewash to the All Blacks and the end of the Lions brand, but coming back from 1-0 down to draw the test series is some achievement, and if anything has actually strengthened the Lions brand.
I’ve tried not to think today, thinking is partly to blame for getting me into this mess. It’s been work all year and I’ve not taken time out, and it’s caught up with me. Unbeknown to us, we walk that tightrope every single day, events can push us over and we lose our balance and struggle to get it back. Balance is key, sometimes you have to accept that you can’t do everything, that saying no to something is actually the better option. I’ve had my mind so focussed on particular goals this year, I took my eye off the ball on finding balance.
