I swung out and back and grabbed the wall. I took a moment to re assess and went again. I got stuck, I got tired and I fell again. This time I came down.
I was elated.
HOW FRUSTRATING I DIDN'T MAKE IT!!! HOW AWESOME THAT I TRIED!! I WILL CONQUER YOU WALL!!!!! YOU AND I WILL MEET AGAIN!
As I raise the difficulty of what I am trying to climb I am seeing more of these spots, where the push is farther than I would like. Where the path isn't as obvious and I have to stop and re assess. Where I have to backtrack the path because I went the wrong way. And I find it all so stimulating. Its asking me to take challenge and pride from my failures. To try new things and see what happens. To push my body to its limits and see where they are....then ask for more.
Fail fast so you can try again
Fail safe so failing isn't devastating.
Feel good you failed, you found a limit. Try again.
