Colombia is out of the World cup today and it sucks. My son is half Colombian so we were rooting for our team to win. Although they are an amazing team, today England happened to be better. Losing is hard. You can prepare, practice, and train and still lose. You can be better, strong, faster, smarter and still lose.
I used to compete in beauty pageants when I was younger and I wasn't very good at them so I experienced defeat a lot of times during competition. No matter how upset I was I continued to compete because I loved the experience, but also because each failure taught me something. Maybe it was a technique that I learned from another girl, the importance of speaking up and confidently, but mostly it was learning how to hold my head high, get back to work, and try again.
Colombia I will be waiting for your return in the next World Cup!
