While I was in Phoenix I hiked a mountain called Camelback. It was AWESOME! It's been quite some time since I hiked because, well, for about 2 years I had what is referred to as "panic attacks" and from that I developed a fear of heights among other things ... I am SO HAPPY to say that has been disappearing over the past 2 years now...
Well as you can see in the photo to the left, my beloved Tony and I are sitting at the SUMMIT! BUT not without a few tears ... and moments of inner Zen along the way. I knew I had a little bit of left over residual fear around heights and with the help of a few other kickass ladies and the support of Tony I said "enough is enough" and it was time to OWN IT! I didn't get angry at myself or judge myself I just simply thought "this seems ridiculous and it's time to own it!".
There were A LOT of rocks, so all of the way up and all of the way down it was like a squat marathon and with two knee surgeries on my left knee in the past, my right leg was working extra hard. Needless to say I could hardly walk for the next few days... So the running joke between Tony and I was: each time I had to walk a little faster or use some stairs, we would say "Own It!" for every right-leg step. It was pretty funny.
It has become a bit of a motto around here!
