After weeks of recovering from the flu, this evening I heard the most beautiful words my Russian acrobatics instructor has ever said to me:
"You doing self"
I've been waiting and working six months or more in hopes of hearing these words, and while it was only a two second victory I'm taking it straight to a bowl of noodles to celebrate.
@RussSharek i think about this whenever i see someone do something that seems effortless, and out of reach for me; i know that some of the things i do have that effect on others, and i know how much work it was for me to get there. so, instead of being envious, i take it as an inspiration, and a chance that i can work towards that as well :)
