Did you know this man walked across the Grand Canyon in jeans?
First of all I’ve been fascinated by the whole thing. Insane. Why is he doing this? Is he going to fall? How long did he train? How can he be prepared? Shouldn’t someone stop him?
And then jeans.
Last night I was obsessed with watching the video of the walk but I couldn’t get it streaming and It was stressing me out. I knew he’d made it across–tweets–but I still wanted to watch. I tried and tried to get the video to work and finally Cam said, Honey. You might have to watch it tomorrow.
So I watched it today. First thing in the morning.
He walked on a wire across the grand canyon.
This made me think a few things:
- anything is possible if you prepare.
- even crazy things. I can’t believe this guy even thought this up, let alone did it.
- and you can wear jeans.
Like why didn’t he wear special wind pants or spandex? Why jeans?
Then I thought, I have been trying not so successfully to do the TOTALLY RAD SUMMER OF 2013 CHALLENGE each week. Except not really. Instead I’ve been half-heartedly doing it. and then giving myself excuses. I realized, with this tight-rope man, that if I want to, I can write a book. Right now. I can get out of this headspace i’m in and write a book. I can also read 1000 books. And swim in 5009 pools. I can do flips. I can do handstands. I can even do a belly flop IF I WANT TO. I can do anything.
IF I WANT TO.
So my goals for this week are the same as last week. Except this time, I’m going to want to. I’m going to stop the excuses. Stop the down talk. And try. I’m going to write whatever comes into my head and then I’m going to follow it. I’m going to do something different today than I did yesterday (wink) and see if that makes a difference.
So that’s my goal.
I also might go to a movie.
