Need some motivation

It's volleyball season again, and I am not feeling any motivation whatsoever to coach this year, however I can't just bail out on Keith (the head coach) now. I didn't really want to do it last year but knew that it would be a good experience, and it was, but it didn't change my mind really about doing it this year. Except I was too slow to make the decision that I didn't want to do it again this year, and so he wouldn't have had enough time to find someone else....it is going to be very difficult to do practices and especially games with Harley, in fact I really don't know how I am going to do it. Especially with the late night games and things, I am never going to get to see her. I am kicking myself for not making the decision quicker. I don't know what to do now, I guess I don't really have a choice, I will just have to figure it out. Ugh I need motivation, and some sort of belief in myself that I can do this both literally and mentally. Sorry for the venting.

You can do it, I promise. I've had thoughts like that a bazillion times. Good thing is, if it's late at night she'll most likely be sleeping, right? That's what I felt like with the paper routes, but the time I missed was when they were sleeping. And, good thing that she's so young because it would be doubly difficult to do it with an older baby, crawling and such. I definitely feel your pain. But I know that you can do it!

Liz, can you take her with you? Most of the time she would sleep in her carseat, or could you just wear a snuggli with her in it? Whenever I have to grocery shop or go to work with Abby, I use the snuggli and she is out in no time. What about coaching until they can find a replacement? I'm sure you'll figure it out...

Frustrating isn't it? The only thing I can tell you is that there are times in our lives when we have to do something and we simply DON'T get why. There may be an amazing reason for you to coach this year that you won't discover until later . . . maybe even a girl on your team that needs you specifically. Through all my managing days WITH my kids - I can't even count how many times I didn't want to do it, especially with kids - but looking back now - I can see why . . . You can do it!

Wow. If anyone ever had support on this its you. The comments from your sisters are so positive. I agree with them, by the way. They have offered you some pretty good solutions, too. I also think that this is something you probably need to do, for a reason possibly unknown to you. It will be fun and will work out to boot. Dad

Of course you can do it...how do we all know...why, because we HAVE DONE IT!! Each of us can and has testified that there are reasons and blessings that exceed the pain and frustration...not that there won't be some of both! And...Tia paved the way for you...just think of the impact she had on you as she coached WITH her kids!! Love, mom/gma
