By being present for others, it allows us to pause and give breath to fulfill the purpose of our work. I realized in November that my role wasn’t to expand LeftFoot or keep it alive, it was to bring it back to it’s source of power. To be real, vulnerable, patient, peaceful, yet driven to fight for the right to create a safe home for failure, risks, tears, hope and joy.
I gave up trying to be the best soccer Academy, or the biggest membership, or the most complicated system and interface. I just made sure I fell in love with the moment to witness a player and guide them to a place in themselves that they could trust their own power, however that power would come to fruition.
Though this journey an amazing process unfolded and we’re about to share LeftFoot, as a unique community of people that are aligned with our mission as it’s unfolding in a unique way the summer. While we’re still in the midst of a three year vision to renew LeftFoot I wanted to invite you to witness us and experience not the complexity of the journey, but the moment of being real.
