I am finding that THE most helpful thing about SP is the network of support we can build. I feel that if we all become more active on this board, we will get closer to reaching our personal goals.
The only way we can offer support for one another is by sharing stories.
I'd like for this thread to be a place for us to talk about our down moments, as well as our up moments. To rant about the tough times, and to celebrate our successes.
Here is the text from my recent blog:
Today was a big day for me. I took a step I never thought I could take. I ignored the inner voice that has always told me I couldn't do it, that I wasn't strong enough, that I wasn't good enough. I pushed myself and tried something new. I succeeded by just taking the step. This feels so amazing.
With this amazing feeling is a strong emotion that I am not sure I can describe. I have never pushed myself like this, but also I have never had such strong support before. No judgment. No comparison. No ridicule. Just encouragement - from members of the CrossFit gym and from members of the SP community.
I really can't find the words to describe how great it feels to have this: to try hard, to not be as good as others, but to push myself to be the best I can be for myself; and then to have a team of friends and strangers cheering me on. I have never experienced it before, and it has brought me to tears. It's a feeling I want to hold on to, and so I will keep pushing, and keep going to those who support me.
Soooooo....where are YOU at? Be open, for there is no judgment here.
Your attempt may fail, but never fail to attempt.
CHOOSE not to accept the false boundaries and limitations created by the past.
