My little girl really wanted to do gymnastics. So I took her yesterday. I used to be a gymnast. At a young age I competed at the state level. At that time in my life I didn’t know how to keep my passion alive. I allowed myself to get sidetracked with running wild.
That little gymnast lives inside me. It was the foundation that makes 10 mile hikes at 40+ possible. I still like to jump on trampolines …. and run a bit wild.
Sitting in my daughters class awakened my little gymnast. Her enthusiasm sparked, once again, my passion and love for this sport. When we came home, she wanted to practice. I started doing splits, hand stands and cartwheels.
I made a commitment. I am going to practice WITH her whenever she wants. I am going to work back up to back flips, and hand stand push ups. We practiced until my arms were numb. I felt alive. I am ready for this new adventure in my life. What are you ready for? What makes you COME ALIVE? Get up and do it! There is a giant ready to be awakened within you. Are you ready to live?
