SHEESH — April was like no other: No organized sports and a new reality due to COVID-19. The world as we knew it no longer exists.
While we learned to cope without basketball as we know it, we still found a way to stay connected. If I learned anything from this pandemic, it taught me that I am stronger than I thought.
Last month we caught up with some phenomenal hoopers, all of which inspired us and confirmed that Girls Got Game is bigger than basketball.
Some of us use hoops to escape from reality. For some people, basketball is therapy. We all need it for one reason or another.
Maybe the world needed this timeout.
In basketball, timeouts are used primarily for strategy purposes, they play an important role in the game, and are extremely crucial at the end of a close game.
Can I be honest? Life was a little hectic before the Coronavirus. I’m a firm believer in looking at the glass half-full rather than half-empty. Even in this dark moment, we have to find a silver lining. The isolation gave me a break from busyness. A break I desperately needed.
Everyone reacts differently to stressful situations. Think of this moment as a timeout, when the referee blows the whistle we’ll come out of this timeout more resilient.
