I’ve gone from wishing I was dead to looking forward to a bright future.
Lots of reasons.
One, definitely that video I posted ‘the Freedom Chair’. To see him sit ski to such an amazing standard is compelling.
I’ve had 2 little goes at it but could do it fairly well.
Give me a week or two and I’ll be half decent.
A year or two, well who knows.
Before, all of my ski guides would comment on how good I was, given it was just a hobby. Several said I ought to be an instructor, and my last guide said, when I asked him what I should work on ‘ I was hoping you might give me a few tips ‘.. Flattery I’m sure, but we all need a bit of that ( especially if we’re paying for it 😉
So… I’ve no doubt that I’ll get better, get back off piste and kick some ass in due course.
I’ve gone from thinking everything is an ordeal, to my former attitude : it’s a challenge that I will master.
The change in my headspace is unbelievable, frankly.
My life is NOT over, it’s just beginning.
