New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady recently told Details magazine:
Life is not living in the suburbs with a white picket fence. That's not life. Somehow our American culture has made it out that that's what life needs to be.
A few years ago Brady did an interview with 60 minutes and admitted with all the SuperBowl rings and millions of dollars he's earned, "there's gotta be more [to life] than this."
Makes me think of the song by Switchfoot called, "This is Your Life." The chorus goes like this.
This is your life, are you who you want to be? This is your life, are you who you want to be? This is your life, is it everything you dreamed that it would be? When the world was younger and you had everything to lose
Tom Brady knows what life is not about. Let's pray that as this NFL season begins, Tom Brady's eyes would be opened to see what life is all about.
