Feeling Proud!

Someday I won’t be able to climb to the top of a rock wall, today is NOT that day!

It is a rare occurrence for me to feel proud of myself, but today I was bursting with pride and excitement as I faced my fear of heights head on and reached my goal.  Climbing that high up is hard, however it is being that high up and trusting the automatic belay enough to let go of the wall that was the killer for me.  My daughter could see my legs shaking from fear all the down on the ground.  I have tried several times throughout my life to conquer this fear to no avail.  Today I reminded myself that someday I’m not going to have the chance to do this and that motivated to buck up and really push myself.  It was a process, but by my last climb I quickly scaled the wall up, took a quick very deep breath and let go of the wall letting the belay take me all the way down!  Boy did that feel fantastic!  Today was an accomplishment!
