Growing Lacrosse Around The World: Wait One Minute

Wait One Minute

Wait one minute. No, seriously. Pause. Turn your screen off and close those youthful eyes of yours for a minute.

One minute is all I’m asking.

One minute.

Use the time to clear your mind and be present in a blank moment in which you about absolutely nothing.

Now open your eyes and look at this text again. Name three unique qualities about the game of lacrosse that you love.

Take three deep breaths.

Are you feeling happy?

It Only Takes A Minute

Happiness is not a privilege. It’s a natural state of mind, and more people in our little community deserve to feel it. Don’t you agree?

As a human being with a little bit of will and just enough energy, I’ve learned the hard way that I deserve to be happy. So do you, and so does the next person you see in your peripheral vision.

For what it’s worth… I’ve found if you carry your lacrosse stick around with you more often, you can deliver this feeling to others daily. All you need is a stick – not even a ball – to bring out a smile and drive positive conversation.

Why is it so hard to grow the game then? It’s just medicine and it only takes a minute.

Founder of Lacrosse All Stars. A West Coast native and product of the MCLA, I moved back East after college where I truly fell in love with the game. I've dedicated my career to LaxAllStars since 2010, and I wouldn't have it any other way. I now live in my hometown of Boise, Idaho, with my wife Zoë, two dogs, and a baby girl expected to arrive around Championship Weekend this May. I'm a technologist at heart, I'm not into snow or the month of January, and one time I kind of stole a football from Gary Gait. Life is crazy busy, but it's worth it when you get to immerse yourself in the medicine of lacrosse every day. We are on a mission to Grow The Game® on a global scale by empowering storytelling by players, for players, and bridging the gap between lacrosse and the mainstream.
