Softball is not who I am …

by Stacie ~ September 27th, 2017. Filed under: Sports Parenting, Stacie's Thoughts.

There once was a time when I wanted my name to be synonymous with fastpitch softball.

When people googled “Stacie Mahoe,” I wanted tons of fastpitch softball results to show up.

But that’s not really ME.

Softball is something I do, and have done, and maybe will do a lot more of again some day, but it’s NOT who I am. I’d venture to say it’s not who you are either. But that’s a topic for another day and another post 🙂

The truth is, I love my family a whole lot more than I love softball. If I had to choose between the two, it’s a no brainer for me. My family wins every time. In fact, there have already been times when I’ve stepped away from the game because it’s what I needed to do to be my best for them. I can give up softball in a heartbeat for them, though they’ve never asked me to.

Softball will always be a part of my life, but it’s not my whole life and it’s not the only thing I have to offer.

It’s been years in the making, this shift away from being synonymous with softball and into becoming, and giving, all I am and have online and off. I now realize that I can be so much more than I’ve been and I also believe that we, you and I (and maybe some others too), will all benefit from that.

I truly enjoy being connected with you. The best is yet to come ❤️

there aren't many things I love more than softball, but my family is one of them
