Before We Begin…

 I know what you’re thinking…that maybe you and I have different definitions of what it means to do hard shit, what with me being an Olympian and all. That doesn’t matter. Hard and difficult are relative. If you think it’s hard it’s hard and it doesn’t matter if anybody else agrees with you. The reality is this: hard may mean different things to each of us but the way in which we approach hardships and difficulties is the same. That’s what this series is about. I don’t know how much you know about me but the short version is this time after time I’m faced with something terrible: assault, bankruptcy, divorce, injuries intermingled with really amazing things: world championship titles, Olympic titles, a world record, good friends, etc. But each time I was faced with something terrible I believed in the moment that that was the end. The end of my hopes and dreams, my goals, the future I had envisaged. The end of me. Of course it sounds melodramatic in hindsight but in the moment, when you’re staring at a seemingly impossible situation in the face that’s exactly how it feels. And that’s okay. It’s what you do next that makes all the difference.

Best Laid Plans…

 So here we are. Shit has hit the fan, or it’s about to. And it feels so bad. I remember when I went to the Olympic Trials in 2008, I made the final of the long jump but failed to make the team, AGAIN. It took me two weeks to move past that experience. You want to know why? Because my dream died. And when things die we grieve. I understood completely the importance of grieving in other areas, like when a loved one dies, or a pet, or a relationship. But it didn’t occur to me how important it was to grieve the death of a goal or a plan. Because if we don’t we aren’t able to take the next steps required of us.
