Transformation Tuesday | Part Deux | Hockey

Throughout my career, I’ve heard and reiterated the saying that “the only constant is change” and I believe the same can be said for life. Growing up, I was blessed to have the benefits of being an only child and the perks of an extended family, with my dad’s seven brothers and sisters and all of my cousins. There were four cousins in particular that we generally spent more time with. These boys I pretty much idolized and they all played hockey. So, I, of course, wanted to play hockey.

But times have changed and this year, my twins (the Ducklings) decided to give hockey a try. Now, I might be more excited about this development than they are, and in my excitement, I connected with someone who helped me rekindle a “want.” She mentioned an adult “breakfast club” to learn how to play hockey and immediately sent me a link.

The journey included getting my equipment, some used and some new, and much to my excitement, I wear junior skates, so I was able to buy new ones that were relatively affordable and have an awesome reputation.
