Yesterday I was telling the story of when my now ex-husband and I lost our sponsorship. The pain of knowing how much we had sacrificed to be doing what we were doing and to be told, "Sorry, we are not going to give you funding this year."
We almost gave up. It was one of those sharp edges moments.
But a good friend said, "No one will ever remember who did the first ascent of a route, or the second, but you will always remember what you walked away from."
In the end, we made it work out. We worked and we realized our dreams. Or at least our climbing goals.
Many years later, and the successful goal of raising my son well beyond the need for my moment by moment attention, I listen to this video and want to argue, there is a moment when you have achieved your goal and you don't know what is next. I think this is a critical moment. The moment of shifting where you put your attention and what you put your attention on is critical to the direction your life takes.
After 5 days of eating the same food, with the goal to actually only eat the same food and only at 3 times per day and with a sense of self care and love behind it, the moment I can choose any food will make all the difference in the strength, the health and the sense of self care I feel in the days to come.
