I am imperfection,

Ask me anything  

When the going gets weird, the weird turn professional.

Ten years ago next month I broke my back. My L5 vertebrae. Then I went back to gymnastics and competed five more years of club gymnastics and four seasons of varsity gymnastics. Because when you’re thirteen and you’re told that you broke your back, your first thought isn’t “how serious is it?” Your first thought is “okay, four months without gymnastics. And then relearning skills. I can do this.” It’s in that moment you realize what it is that you live for, and what you’ll continue to live for; that nothing will ever stop you. And I went on and continued to see just how far I could push my back, and what weird, back flexibility skills I could continue to learn. Because being a gymnast means pushing any limit that you know and leaving any fears behind. And it’s a decision I could never regret. Even if ten years later my back still hates me. #gymnastics #lovethissport #noregrets #brokenback #shootforthemoon #tbt #throwbackthursday #gymnast
