This week someone asked me the question; “Do you miss showing in the freestyle?”

For the whole week I didn’t really have an answer. At first I thought this meant ‘no’ I don’t miss it, but I wasn’t sure. I also didn’t give it much specific thinking time either though.

Tonight, while watching the Congress Freestyle I found my answer: Yes. I do miss showing in the freestyle.

But…I’m still happy I am not.

I have a specific way I like to show in the freestyle. Specific goals that I want to achieve, if, and when, I do show in the class. If I don’t think I can reach those personal goals…then I’m not interested in showing.

Each person has their own personal reasons for showing. For some it is a bucket list item. For others it sounds like fun. Yet others seek the challenge of winning.

Sitting in the stands watching tonight made two things clear; I do miss showing in the freestyle and I do hope that some day I will do it again.
