I'm not a great skier, but today I had the privilege of enjoying the sheer natural beauty of Deer Valley with two wonderful colleagues first hand. Fear is an interesting emotion to experience, and today it was incredibly real and present for me. When faced with fear or a difficult challenge in life, I guess we all have the same simple options - fight, flight or freeze - and I found myself experiencing a little of each today. Although it was nice to stay on the easier green runs, I found my boundaries pushed and my bravery rewarded when I tackled the harder blue runs. Although it wasn't pretty and I might have a few bruises tomorrow as a result, I know I'm stronger for having faced my fears and overcome them. What fear do you need to face and overcome?
Gotta love bluebird days. It's funny how I remember hating skiing as a kid, and this year I've really grown to love it. I've got a long way to go but I've improved so much. I even made it down a few blacks this season. #beutahful#skiing#utahisrad#parkcity#deervalley
