The moment when you think everything is going perfect in every which way in your life right now might not be 100 percent true for me. Never take anything for granted! There are so many options and tragedies that life will hit you in the face with. The moment when something happens that you did not expect at all, you will look back and might regret many things in the past. 

In the point in life right now, many things have not been going perfectly how I would have expected it to be. For one example I pulled three tendons in my right hand-- therefore no climbing 4 months straight! 

 

To the first day I could get back on the wall I did! The next few weeks after training for a climbing trip coming up,  I felt a very sharp pain much like I had when I hurt my hand the first time. That moment I thought I did it again-- re hurt my hand.  

Soon enough I sat down and pulled my climbing shoes off and started to massage my for arm. All that was going through my head was all negative thoughts. But I stopped myself and thought if I am thinking about all negative thought then there will always be negative outcomes.  

I am not saying that hurting my hand was meant to be. But what I am saying is that maybe it was good that i caught myself thinking negative and I turned right back and told myself if I keep that up then my life will not have the best outcome.
