This weekend, my littlest who once feared MTB but became a MTB racer, overcame her fear of the snowboard and let go.
She fell many times. There was frustration, pain, and tears.
There were also hugs, laughs, giggles, and the moment she let go and rode untouched.
It was that feeling, for those seconds, that kept her getting back up.
Always get back up, for every time you stay down you deny yourself that feeling of freedom and happiness.
It is also true that without the fall, we don’t learn how to recover or improve.
Almost everything we do, we were once not able to do.
“We gain strength, and courage, and confidence by each experience in which we really stop to look fear in the face… we must do that which we think we cannot.” -Eleanor Roosevelt
