Ella Masar: LOVE - Entry #25

Trust me when I say, living in the “light” is one of the hardest decisions I have ever made. It was the moment I let go of all my pain, all my anger. When I started to understand the power of true forgiveness. When I accepted all my mistakes, and took a hard look at the human being that I had become. 

Every day I have to continually remind myself of who I am and who I want to be - who Jesus has called me to be and by loving Erin, who only reinforces that, you think she hinders it.

In which Ella Masar preaches a sermon about love.

Abby Wambach Leaves Soccer, Enters Pantheon of All-Time Greats | VICE Sports
Wambach will leave the game a legend, a warrior for the sport of soccer and for female athletes, a frustrating and flawed FIFA Ballon d'Or winner.

I appreciate this article because it talks about what a legendary player Abby is, but it doesn’t ignore the seriously shitty things she’s done.

There is no denying the amazing things Abby has done as soccer player, but that doesn’t mean her being willing to shit on other people should be brushed under the rug. Her behavior was disgusting and inexcusable. Shame to have such a career tainted by hurting the people who deserve it the least. One of the darkest times in WoSo and Abby, who is supposed to be a leader, let others get crushed as she continued to climb.
