I have watched my teammates struggle and fail and struggle and win. Each step is another step forward in the journey of ups and downs. If it was easy..... everyone could do it, right?
So I made my first two tricks of my optional. I was very disappointed. NOT that I fell, but that I didn't anticipate falling second skill. I had run the scenarios in my head and this outcome was the only one I didn't account for.
Next time. =)
