Weekly Win - 24
Happy Father’s Day to all the dads out there! May your day be filled with laughter, hugs, and endless love. Today, I’m thinking of my dad, who has been gone for nearly seven years. He was an amazing man, someone who I could always rely on for a strong shoulder to lean on, or a kick in the ass if I needed it. Thanks to a selfless organ donation by a stranger in 2004, he received a life-extending lung transplant. He was able to meet seven of his grandchildren (my sister-in-law is expecting grandchild number eight in August) and had a special relationship with each of them.
Today is a great day to give your dad, brother, uncle, or another male in your life, a phone call or arrange a visit with them. Enjoy every moment you have (this goes for every loved one) and always let them know how much you love and appreciate them. Time is precious!
Alright! Here we go for this week’s wins!
Saturday was my final class in my acting class. We performed as our characters and gave a monologue performance. It was a bit scary to be on the stage giving the final performance, which was recorded, but exhilarating to push through the fear and do it anyway! I learned a lot about myself over the last couple of months and will use what I learned to continue to push out of my comfort zone.
Alana is finishing up her last week at school. She has been extremely focused on getting the final school projects completed and preparing for final exams. With her goals in mind, she even decreased her rock climbing this week so she could stay focused. I know she’s looking forward to Friday when she can sit back and look at her accomplishments.
I snuck in an extra climbing session this week at The Edge Climbing Centre in North Vancouver with my climbing partner Susi. We climbed a few routes that were at the top of our level, but we pushed through and topped everything we tried. I’m looking forward to climbing at that gym more frequently this summer, as well as doing some outdoor climbing courses with Rob.
Inaction breeds doubt and fear. Action breeds confidence and courage. If you want to conquer fear, do not sit home and think about it. Go out and get busy.
