*Sound on* I go through phases of being a trick chaser and an arty farty noodler. Today I chased the trick. I must have done this nearly 30 times before feeling ok with it. And that’s just today, I’ve had my eye on it for a long time, but I always put it on the bottom of my to do list. By this one, my best attempt of the day, I had a huge sigh of relief! I know it’s silly, but getting this trick kind of makes me feel like a real vertical aerialist. As I always do when I unlock aerial achievements I reflect on what I’ve done to get here. I’m still progressing, albeit slower than while I was in circus school. Everyone has a different journey. Maybe to some this trick was really easy to get. My point is keep moving forward, keep trying, keep discovering. Also I’ve been listening to a lot of @the_artist_athlete podcast while being banished to the states awaiting my visa and it’s such a good resource! It’s definitely made me look at myself/ my practice/ my goals in a better light. Check it out!
