Re: Petra shot down by Laura in Melbourne

This might not mean that much to most of you,but a QB showed some resolve today for the first time in a huge playoff game(he offered a foretaste the previous week),and he outdid one of the legends of the sport in leading his team to the Super Bowl.He had a history of some of the most pathetic mental errors and,unlike Petra,he had never won any major championships to suggest that his F-ups weren't his destiny(he'd won division titles;however,there are EIGHT different geographical divisions,so that's not as impressive as it sounds).

There's no evidence that he's seen a sports counsellor or anything;apparently,he just reached down within himself and found the courage to fight.I'm offering encouragement here in that,if a habitual big-game screwup found a way to be strong,then Petra should have every reason to believe in herself,deep down,and make herself stronger,too

Congrats on Number Three, Kim! We need more of you in this world
