It has been hard to watch competitions pass and not be part of them. The picture we paint on instagram is never the full picture. I try my best to give an honest and genuine glimpse into my life. I love capturing the places I go, the things I get up to and I try to create interesting footage and snap shots of what I’m actually up to. However, it is hard to share when things aren’t going to plan. When life gets tough and frustrating. But that’s how life goes. It’s never perfect. Don’t get me wrong I love looking at other people’s photos of incredible places, inspirational people and things that make me smile but it’s easy to forget that instagram is often a show reel of the best bits of our lives. Recently my finger has been a little bit sore and achy again and I’ve had to take a few steps back and listen to my body. It’s frustrating to be back here after it had been feeling so good. There have been tears, tantrums and a lot of deep breaths. I’ve struggled to stay positive, to smile and say everything will be ok. I feel incredibly grateful to have people around me to help me through the tough times. It can be hard to accept help but it is invaluable. With that help, some time spent reflecting and a burning desire to climb harder than I ever have there is no doubt in my mind that I can come back stronger. I am motivated and determined to be fit and ready for Olympic selection, climb outside and keep smiling. Even if that means going back to standing on scales and hanging off a Beastmaker in my cellar to gradually reload my tendon once again. Even if that means not competing right now, and even if that means asking those around me for support.
Thank you so much
