Unless you're into drugs, polo eliminates the thrill of everything else. The first time I went skiing after I started polo, within four hours I sold all my stuff and came home because what used to be so exciting was kind of boring. The same thing with scuba diving, sailing, climbing mountains ? all the things I used to do prior to polo.
Buzz Welker quote
Self-acceptance comes from meeting life's challenges vigorously. Don't numb yourself to your trials and difficulties, nor build mental walls to exclude pain from your life. You will find peace not by trying to escape your problems, but by confronting them courageously. You will find peace not in denial, but in victory.
