“there are hurdles to overcome in sport and in life. Sport is a very valuable learning ground for how to live your life in the best possible way.” – Lynn Davies, British athlete, Olympic gold medallist, Tokyo 1964.
Like most of you I have been enthralled, entertained, educated and excited by the sheer marvellousness of the London 2012 Games. Today’s post is a short tribute to say thank you to the athletes, their coaches, family and friends and EVERYONE who took part in creating and delivering a memorable London 2012 Games.
Thank you for being present and making the Games such a moving experience of humanity being their best and giving their all in creating and delivering such an inspirational London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games.
As as Games Maker/ volunteer in the Paralympic Games, the experience has been one of the best things I have ever been a part of… I dont have the words to express how I feel and what it meant to me. All I know is…
as a volunteer over the last 11 days I have,
1. Smiled more
2. Laughed more
3. Given more
4. Helped more
5. Waved more
6. Cheered more
7. Listened more
8. Judged less
9. Gasped more
10. Given Thanks more
then I have ever done in such a short pace of time.
Its like all the most magical moments of my life, all the prayers and blessings available shone and we were all blessed with grace.
I want the feelings, the energy and sense of vitality, joy and optimism I felt during the Games to play a bigger part in my life. What I witnessed during the Games and the way everyone stepped up, worked together and give their best is priceless. Many times during the Games I was reminded of the time I completed my Sivananda Yoga Teacher’s Training Course in Kerela, and how everyone at the Ashram joyfully completed their Karma Yoga activities in a spirit of passionate peace and tranquillity. To see that energy, the hand of God move through the crowds and helpers was a joy to behold and manifestation of spirit in action.
