As a kid growing up in the U.S., I had the privilege of climbing every year.
But that wasn’t always the case.
When my parents moved to Florida, I was introduced to a climbing style that many kids today may not even be aware of: bouldering.
I would often play outside in my backyard, sometimes with friends, and sometimes on a ledge.
When I was older, I started exploring more outside and spent more time climbing in the mountains.
I also had a strong interest in climbing.
I loved to climb, and I loved the sport.
In fact, it was the only sport I really loved.
But my climbing style was not a popular one.
I would get called a “mama-boulder,” which meant “mamma boulder.”
I would get criticized for it, which was not good.
But the biggest criticism I received was, “You don’t climb.”
So I decided to change my climbing styles.
I began climbing in more ways than I had ever climbed before.
I started bouldering, and in the years since, I have become a better climber than I ever have been before.
But I am still not a legend.
I was never a big climber.
I wasn’t a world-class climber either.
I didn’t have a reputation for being a good climber or being a top climber as a kid.
But as a climbing enthusiast, I knew I had to become better.
So what changed?
First, I made the decision to be more physical.
In addition to being able to push harder and more often, I needed to be able to get out there and climb.
I had always felt like I could get a good night’s sleep, and that was the main reason I started climbing in such high numbers.
As a result, I got to go climbing more, and climbed more often.
It made me stronger.
Then, I learned to enjoy the process.
I could take a few nights off from climbing to go to the gym and eat a healthy diet.
I even started doing yoga more often and started doing it at home.
It gave me an outlet to practice and build strength.
I think I have finally become a great climber and a better person.
The most important thing I’ve learned about myself is that I love climbing.
In my past life, I didn´t love climbing as much as I love being in the gym.
And I was not so good at it, either.
But after being healthy and practicing, I could actually enjoy it more.
So I love it more than I thought I would.
It gives me a reason to push myself every day and push myself to reach my goals.
That´s what climbing is about.
And now, I want to help others do the same.
The best way to achieve these goals is to embrace your own strengths and talents.
That way, you will always be able do your best.
