I was so stoked on my jump off this rock. This would be totally unacceptable for licensing but they don’t need to know. When I approached the rock I immediately said to myself that there was no way I was going to get up it or jump off of it. It was daunting in more ways than one. As I saw all my kids doing it I felt like I was leaving myself out like I did when I was their age, when I was afraid of my body and afraid that it wouldn’t allow me to do these physical things. Well I called bullshit on my body and I’m so glad I did. Jumping wasn’t so scary, it was the climbing up the fucking rock that was the tough part. I almost gave up but I accessed the different ways to climb up and found a way. I pushed myself and now I have this fun memory and it was a really great week spent camping with my work. I don’t even care how I look because I was having so much fun. I felt that getting my ass up and off that rock would show some of my kids that it doesn’t matter how scared you are to fall or how you look doing it, you have to take these special moments as they come and embrace it all. Pretty sweet job getting paid to do this and then a few weeks later I won Staff of the Year. Yeah I kind of mostly love what I do.
