Welcome to #BecauseICan
I may not be able to do the things you do, but what I can do may surprise you.
What a time to be alive BH!
Yesterday, I was humbly invited to throw the first pitch at the Brooklyn Cyclones Little League All Star game. And to be honest, I was so excited & accepted the invitation, the idea of how I would physically throw the ball didn't even cross my mind.
Then I got to the stadium & saw these courageous players practicing together with their smiles, their will, their fellowship. And their contagious team spirit bounced onto me & gave me the strength to throw out the first ball of the game.
So, never let the fear of striking out keep you from playing the game. I know these champions definitely didn't.
I may not be able to do the things you do, but I can seize the moments I've been blessed with. ⚾️
Special thank you to David Alhadeff for this amazing opportunity & reminding me to just keep swimming.
