My Motivation: A Tutu-Wearing Rock Climber
Sure, there are things my daughter is scared of, or pretends to be scared of, like any typical kid – lighting storms, dark rooms, strangers, and new food. But otherwise, she’s the bravest little person I know.
Today while at the playground watching her swing across the monkey bars (then up the rock wall, then through a rope wall) with such ease, I remembered an Instagram post from a few weeks back. It was a photo of her in a tutu, rock climbing… my caption: “When I need inspiration or motivation, I just need to look at my tutu-wearing rock-climbing daughter.” She is the reason I want to better myself and look for ways to explore ways to improve, like doing 30 Day Challenges.
As a toddler, climbing furniture and jumping from anything with height, there was little that would stop her. She didn’t think anything would hurt her. Even now, when we challenge her brain or braun, she goes in with unrestraint and majestic confidence. If she does get hurt, after the tears dry up, she shows off her new booboo to whoever will listen – proud of how she got it.
Inevitably as she goes through her childhood and the teen years this will slowly be replaced with insecurities, peer pressure, and the expectancy to conform. It makes me wish I could bottle this fearlessness up and make her drink it later in life when she has moments of self-doubt. Heck, I want a sip of it now.
