Citius, Altius, Fortius

Last few weeks have blessed me with perspective. Night after night watching Olympians compete on the largest sport forum in the world, made coming back to writing easy. The spirit of continuing. The love and the passion to excel. Above all the commitment.

I was afraid that my words reeked of mediocrity. So I paused for a breather. For inspiration. And one day just like that as I watched Dara Torres swim to the silver at the womens 50m Freestyle it struck me. Giving up half way is what i have traditionally excelled at. Doing just enough to breeze by in life is a skill I have honed to perfection. I have tried my hand at so many different things. Jack of so many trades, a master of none! I watched record after record break I wondered, what exactly is it in life that I would give so much dedication to?

I don't know what that is, but I know I have to find it. I know I cant stop writing because I am afraid of how badly I write. I cant stop walking because I am not the fastest. I can no longer be the quitter. There is only one way now. Faster, Higher, Stronger.
