Trying to be Positive Here

Marques Colston (ex-Saints wide receiver) was on the Jim Rome Show this week, and Jim asked him what was the most important thing he learned in making the transition out of pro football into the world.

Colston said, "I learned how to be comfortable being uncomfortable."

I talked to Eli 18.1 about that the same night. University is definitely shitty right now compared to last year. There's just no way around it. The entire social experience that defines the college experience is gutted. 

I told him that for all of us, learning what Marques Colston learned would stay with us for the rest of our lives, and was a more important lesson during this than anything he could learn in a classroom.

I'm trying to remember that as WTF2020 rolls on. It's true for all of us, because if we can gradually grow more comfortable with all this, anything else in life is going to be much less difficult to handle. It's a one or two year process to become more comfortable every moment of the rest of our lives.
