I noticed my husband’s “Live to Play Old School Athletics” picture and decided that if at 55 he can manage work, 3 boys, my demands and still make time to play baseball he’s doing something right.
Each of us contains an invisible part of our bodies we cannot see, but one that we can feel. This part of our body is called the soul. It is through our souls that we search for the meaning of life. However, one cannot discover the meaning of life without fulfilling the soul first. Some people search their entire lives without ever truly finding or understanding what the meaning of life is for them, or how they can fulfill their souls. For the athlete, it is simple. Through athletics, the meaning of life is often discovered at a young age. Fulfillment of the soul is then achieved through the athlete’s understanding that he cannot live without competitive athletics. In other words, the Old School Athlete must Live to Play.
