The Glenview Stars are proud of your accomplishments on and off the ice!
Are you an insomniac?
Do you gaze at the clock after midnight like you gaze at a hockey scoreboard? Do you check the time and move the end of the game, the end of the day, as you see fit: 2 a.m., 3 a.m.?
"I can stretch it to 4 a.m. and get enough sleep to still make tomorrow work, right?"
Do you do sleep math in your head?
You don't want today to end because you are battling and grinding to make today a good day, a worthwhile day. You battle the demons of heavy sadness and you are losing. We are losing. And the loss makes us feel even worse, guilty and weak that we can't overcome. The perfectionist never wins. He or she is stuck in a bardo of second-guesses, regrets and "What the hell happened?"
There are nights I dread the end of the day like I used to dread the end of an NHL game. Once the rare NHL game I was attending with my dad passed the 10-minute mark of the second period, my 10-year-old self would feel nauseous/sad that the game was more than halfway over.
Thank you to Paige Southwood for representing the Glenview Stars Girls Hockey Program on the ice with the Women’s National Hockey Team!
