Course correction

Originally appeared online in the teen column: Your Healings - December 21, 2016

I broke my thumb playing soccer. I know, I know: You’re not supposed to play soccer with your hands. But somehow, my hand got caught between another player and me. I thought the injury was just another jammed finger, and figured I would have a sore thumb for the rest of the day. I would later realize that this line of reasoning is where I went wrong.

It was my second year playing varsity soccer, and I loved being part of the team. We were about a month into our season when this incident happened. Quickly, I realized this was more than a jammed finger; my thumb was broken. The injury was holding me back, not just from soccer, but also from a class rafting trip in Idaho. I had been looking forward to this trip for a while, and now I was worried that I wouldn’t be able to go.
