The NFL winners and losers...
Yesterday while painting, I was listening to the post game show in the radio after the Chiefs lost. While listening to the reporters interviewing the players, there was something very distinctive about what was coming over the radio.
When the reporter made his way into the winners locker room, his voice was upbeat, loud and it sounded as though the future was wide open. Yet the same reporter goes into the losers locker room minutes later and his voice is down, subdued and the future was bleak.
After experiencing tragedy in my own life, the differences were unmistakable. I had to pause for a moment to think about this, as it happened often in my own life after Blake's death. Here I was, a battle brewing within of the old me and the new me, yet the voices I heard in conversation were already telling me I was the loser.
Society plays a bigger role then we give credit. We change within, but without a doubt, those on the outside have a role as well. It even happens in football locker rooms and it's just a game.
