These last few weeks have been a journey for me. They have involved digging deep and working at conquering some internal fears that have taken over. It's a large work-in-progress, but I'm showing up every day and doing the work.
These weeks have reminded me of many lessons learnt while in gymnastics...one particular instance comes to mind. I was probably 10 and was competing at provincials in Truro, NS. We were on bars....and bars was my favorite and best event...no doubt about it.

And yes Erin...those were our warm up suits!
In gymnastics, there were many times when falls occurred but I had to get back up each and every time and not let fear take over, to continue to push my body and mind 100% to accomplish goals.
Why has this stood out over these past weeks? Because back then I fell, because I didn't take the easy way out, but rather pushed myself, and then dusted myself off and got right back at it. That is what I am doing now....I pushed myself (too much this time), now I am dusting myself off, getting back at it, and will continue to push the limits having learned a lesson. I will probably always continue to take the path less travelled, as I like to be challenged, and yes...that means I might fall...but what matters is that I continue to get back up!!!
What lessons from childhood have stayed with you??
Do you have a memorable story to share???
