Wish I could do something like this

Jamie asked today: "Where do you wish to grow your confidence?". More wishers answers can be found here.

Me? I want to grow confidence in my body. More specific: in my own physical strength.

My greatgreatgrandfather was a Prussian General (at least that is what the family legend says). I guess it´s from him that we were all taught that never-told-in-so-many-words family motto: "pain is endured and duty is fullfilled".

I have a high pain threshold. And even then I keep going. In that aspect I´m strong. But when it comes to actually doing something like cartwheels or standing upside down or hanging from something ... jelly.

I so wish I could do something like this.

Ya know, Pink has said she performs better upside down because right side up she is too afraid of the audience/etc...maybe we all just need to find out what angle we need to look at our audience/life/whatever so it gives us the perspective we need to carry on the way we want to carry on.

Paula, That's awesome! Thanks for sharing that...I am so kickin' motivated right now.

I agree that there is something within each of us that longs for that unbelievable dance with our body - the strength where we have full control to just flow in and out of moves. (I've found my strength in yoga, but am anxious to try other routes.)
