I am sitting here at the Visa National Championships immersed in gymnastics. Reading blogs, twitter and blogging myself as the junior men compete. A few years ago, I decided that I needed to stop following the crowd (my friends) and be willing to venture out on my own to do the things I wanted to do – even if it meant doing them alone. That decision eventually led me to this point.
As I have re-engaged in one of my lifetime passions, gymnastics, I have found a new part of myself. I have begun to meet people that share my passion. And I find myself alive in a whole new way. My overwhelming thought as I sit here today is that this is where I belong.
I am grateful for the new friendships that I am just beginning to form, for the newfound talents I am discovering and growing in and most of all for the world of gymnastics!
