If I were Queen of the world!

The world is a beautiful, wondrous place one that if you were unborn and had the ability to think it would be unbelievable paradise to you.

Do we really appreciate its capabilities, its marvel , its staggering possibilities. I doubt it we are too busy making war…..
Our children of the world see its wonder its attraction, they are not marred by power, greed and egotism.

If I were lucky enough to be Queen of the world, I’d be someone who valued its people along with its staggering natural beauty.
I’d teach forgiveness above most things, enabling man to tolerate and see itself for all its worth rather than letting man think it needs something other than what the true world already has to offer in its amazing state….

Everywhere in our 21st century world we see destruction, man struggling for power, struggling to over turn his fellow man.
Where has the compassion disappeared to, what of our conscious. We see innocent people suffer, children refugees of war. Is there no end to the slaughter……

If I were Queen of the world even for just one day, I’d show my wrath, I’d wash away the evil with pure nature itself.
I’d save the innocent from their peril put balance back into mankind and hope above all else that we could be forgiven for our madness…….

The importance of sport for children!

For me sport at school wasn’t either my favorite or least wished for lesson.
I was pretty average until it came to hockey.
I can honestly say I was taught an incredible amount from my experience in the hockey team.
Team work, camaraderie, and most importantly that hard work and practice does pay off and it leads to improvement. Meaning I became a better player, with that came incredible positivity and confidence…

It was of no real surprise then that when I had children of my own, that I would be strongly insistent that they took up some form of sport from an early age.
My son was playing if playing is the correct term, possibly better described as chasing a ball around in large groups, obviously football from the age of three.
He was boisterous and full of energy, sport just seemed the obvious answer.
It not only tired him out which at the time was great, because he then slept better, but for his future taught him all the lessons and more than I even or could possibly have hoped for.

Both my children are actively involved in sport still and possibly both may follow career’s into that field in the near future.

Despite my experience from my own early teenage years with the advantage of sport, I could never realise the huge positive impact it would have on my children’s lifes

The impact on children’s development.

Its been proven that sport in children’s development both mentally and physically can only be described as positive…..
It helps develop –
1. Honesty
2. Team building skills.
3. Respect for themselves and others.
4. Fair play.
5. Being able to stick to rules.
6. Discipline.
7. Healthier life style
8. Competitive understanding, losing and winning the lessons learnt from both.

The list is endless and with all these advantages and more, not forgetting most importantly there is the enjoyment, fun, the great friendships that are all fueled by being part of a team.

I can whole heartily say and recommend anyone with young children to encourage sport into their early life’s. Whether it be football, rugby, cricket or individual sports like swimming, golf, althletics just to name a few, because the benefits out way all the long journey’s to matches or practice.
Not only that I actually miss those days, wonderful memories made and friends too…….
