I am not terribly successful, I am not as strong as I want to be, I am not at the top of my game, nor might I ever be–that’s not the point.
The point is that I give it my all, no matter what “it” happens to be.
My heart is stronger than this circuit workout, my spirit is taller than this sport climb, my body is the temple, and my mind the liturgy.
I don’t “deserve” to be at the top of that climb any more than I “deserve” anything that the universe can offer me. All I can do is show-up.
And that’s all anyone can as of you. So do yourself and everyone else a favor: be present.
