August 10th, 2009

Amazing-ness: Kim Clijster made a winning return to the WTA tour after a 2 year hiatus where she got married and had a baby girl, beating the in-form world number 12 Marion Bartoli 6-3 6-4

It's truely amazing how someone can walk away from something they were so good at, to not be in a competitve mind set and/or physically capable of being competitive, and then to just come back, and beat the current world number 12 who've just won a big title two weeks ago!

The amount of motivation and dedication required for someone to come back so quickly and so strong is truly admiration and I can only imagine what it feels like to work so hard and suffer so much but knowing that every single second is worth it, all because of the love of the game.

If only we can apply that kind of enthusiasm and love toward something that counts toward us. Somethings are just extra special when you know you're tried your best and given your all, and the result is always going to be amazing regardless of what actually ended up happening.

P.S: Something else that's truly amazing happened today, I was chatting away on AIM while I'm 35,000 ft in the air! All thanks to the new wi-fi in the sky feature by Virgin America called TOGO. It made me feel very special and lucky, not sure why, since chatting while on ground and chatting while in an airplane are both the same, haha, but who cares, it gave me a "wow, this is amazing" moment. It also gives me yet another thing to do while desparately trying to avoide conversation with the stranger next to me.
