Be Kind to YOURSELF!
Lessons from the NET 🎾
BE KIND TO YOURSELF!!! Yesterday my team "I ❤️ MY DOUBLES PARTNER!!!" played our last USTA match (and won the season woo hoo). Our opponents were very sweet to us, great etiquette and sportsmanship. They both were very good players too!!!! The only thing was that one of them was very hard in herself. And the more that she told herself off for missing a serve into the net - the more she hit her serve in the net.
I saw that every time she was mean to herself - she made more mistakes! It was a great reminder to have self compassion!
If you want to play better and have more fun - try to forgive yourself for your mistakes quickly and focus on the next point. Just release the disappointment and replace it with a new plan!
