I used to be in a space were I was hesitant to speak on athletics. This was primarily because a younger Sabrina felt as though she didn’t achieve what she was supposed to achieve by this point in her athletic career.
My fear was not being able to convert my success as a youth/junior into a senior athlete because that is where it really mattered. And that “smooth transition” from being a junior to a senior I had envisaged for myself is still yet to happen. To be honest the last few years have been anything but smooth. However, with maturity, experience and learning more about myself I now embrace all the good, bad and ugly that occurs. I’ve learned to re-frame my thoughts and instead of thinking “why is this happening to me?” I now think “what will this teach me?” This shift in perspective has been a real game changer. So yes I’m far from achieving my goals but I accept that this is where I’m at for the moment. The destination is still in mind, it hasn’t ever really left. The difference is that I am now owning every part of my journey.
