The wheel is turning and you can’t slow down,
You can’t let go and you can’t hold on,
You can’t go back and you can’t stand still
— Robert Hunter
The wheels certainly keep turning, and it is no time to slow down. The journal is flourishing, and I am proud to have been a part of its growth. My goals were to secure Index Medicus, increase visibility, improve the international presence, increase papers that focused on rehabilitation, and promote the interprofessional and interdisciplinary nature of the journal. As I reflect on the last 12 years, I cannot go back, and I have no plans to stand still. I hope that I was able to convey the importance of fostering and providing opportunities for others to succeed. I hope that I provided a process where authors received fair and substantive reviews and where many were able to advance their scholarly agenda. While much of the work is done behind a computer screen and via a keyboard, I hope that I was able to provide the power of a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, or honest compliment to improve the quality of a manuscript and support those willing to share original research with the Journal of Sport Rehabilitation.
Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, and honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around.
