!” All I remember was all the girls on my team screaming and running towards me. Luckily, I was at the right place at the right time and headed the ball into the net. I scored the winning goal and it felt amazing. We won the championship! Over the years, soccer has changed me as a person.
She eventually found out, and it destroyed her. How could someone she loved so much do something so awful. This was the first time I had broke down since my parents spilt up. The day she found out I drove her home from school, and she seemed so emotionless, so empty on the inside. I didn’t get how I did this to her.
I started to work really hard at improving my skills. Before I knew it, I was starting varsity and took the spot from a senior who was playing all his life. Since then, I have feel in love with soccer. I now play indoor, outdoor, and futsal soccer five times a week. Soccer requires skill, physical ability, and mental strength.
Little did I know how right I was. As time went on we developed a friendship that I thought could only develop over years of knowing one another. Thank you for showing me that friendship cannot be measured by the amount of time spent in one and another's life. You gave me that chance where I was yours and you were mine.

Getting Back into the Game I have always been involved in sports in some way or another. I was team captain in every sport imaginable in elementary school. Junior high I continued to be involved in sports, but it wasn't until high school started that I really got into it. I played soccer, softball and basketball at Rogers High School. I particularly loved soccer.
I cannot believe that it has been a month since my boyfriend decided to end our relationship. Sometimes I feel as though it is all a bad dream. Then I realized that I lost my best friend and the heartbreak sets in time after time again. Our relationship, from my point of view, was filled with nothing but endless laughter and most importantly love. I honestly felt like I was living in a fairy tale.
As do all the nudges and urgings from the universe that led them there. Once I left, I looked back and saw this path towards that day so clearly — to me it made perfect sense. So much so that when friends asked me later, “How could you leave such a life — not having to work, good parents, nice house?” I would answer, “How could I not?” And yet, I had never felt so humbled.
