“Be my backbone, every ***** need a spine” -Young Jeezy
I think Jeezy said it best but I can tell you first hand that taking the road less traveled can be lonely, defeating at times and filled with moments of discouragement. I always relate my journey to becoming the best woman sports broadcaster to that of an athlete trying to be the best at his/her game. Those same qualities it takes to be a great athlete are the same qualities it takes to accomplish whatever dream you may have. No days off. Consistency. Practice.
But how important is it to have a partner thats willing to ride with you and for you? To support you on your road to success. The long nights in the gym to the early mornings on the field.
Last Sunday, Russell Wilson was unable to overcome the 31pt. deficit the Seahawks incurred in the first half of last week’s NFC divisional round and eventually succumbed to Carolina 31-24. Shortly after the defeat, Ciara posted this message:
Russell Wilson responded by saying “Sweetest thing I’ve ever known. I’m so grateful for the loving, sweet, standup woman you are…Love you #TrueLove”.
So I beg the question again, Is having a partner/companion necessary to be successful on the road less traveled?
