Super Angie...the letter

I just received the following letter...

To Angie Waibel . My very best wishes on your upcoming training and competing. I know the physical struggles that you are dealing with and I am so inspired by how you give so much to figure skating. THIS is a part that I love about my sport. I may be old and my body broken, but I don't think that that feeling you get when your blades hit the ice, the sound, or even the smell of the ice ever leave your heart. I am unable to compete and at times I miss it. However, seeing my little girl feel the same love and see her spirit lifted by it really moves me and it is enough. Hearing what you go through daily to come back to what you love is also very moving to me and you have become a wonderful role model and inspiration for Lillian. She remembers watching you at Skate for Hope and out of every group and skater there, she remembers liking to watch you. Of course she loves the Olympic and National stars and spending time in a show with them, but she also sees you as a big star in and I want to wish you our heartfelt best. We'll be watching and cheering you on. Shine on! Keep going and my little star is hoping big things for you

Super big rush

I had an incredible lesson yesterday with Genia. I really enjoy working with her. She humors me, compliments, corrects, makes me do stuff again and really teaches. I have learned so much and she is happy to see how much progress I've already made.

Having a back injury is forcing me to slow down, not rush things. Something Genia mentioned time and time again in my lesson. Slow down on that three turn. Don't rush that. SLOW DOWN!  Its not just my coach that is saying this, but also my body. And both are taking to my mind and body.

I am finding great peace in my life when I slow down other parts as well. Scripture study--slow down, think, ponder. While driving- turn off the music. Or change the music. Something different. I'm attending the temple and feeling great peace there- quiet. Shhh...peaceful, slowdown.

This injury has also helped me slow down my skating- and not focus on getting bigger and better skills. I am at peace with the statement "I will not jump above a lutz". I actually feel so FREE saying that. My coach is really happy too. She keeps saying "There is nothing wrong with that!" and she understand that we are all human and we need to watch our bodies.

I am still doing PT, Massage and Chiropractic. I'm seeing big changes. I'm seeing new strength. There are set backs but the best thing is, you stop, and look back to see how far you've come. I've come A LONG WAYS since July!

No need to rush.

Joy in the Journey.
