I am on the plane back from Chicago and I think today was a good day to practice my virtues. Tranquility was alright for me today. I played in the semifinals of my tennis tournament and won but I was pretty nervous the whole time so I still need to continue to work on my breathing during matches. I lost in the finals so I got 2nd in the tournament and my tranquility wasn’t as good.
Patience was almost the same as tranquility as when I get nervous or overwhelmed during a match, I get impatient and try to go for too small of targets and too big of shots. I did pretty good at this during my first match but not very well in the finals.
Moderation was actually good today even though I played two matches. I got to walk around Chicago in the city and even got to go shopping and get ice cream. I am looking forward to taking the day off tomorrow and spending some time with my friends.
Order was good as well as I did a good job getting packed and ready to go in a short period of time. I am hoping that I will be able to clean my room more now that I’ll be back in town.
I also found a lot of joy in my day. Even though I lost my last match, I am still incredibly happy with my result of 2nd. Being able to see the city was also a major point of joy as well. Overall, it was a pretty good day!
