As we sit at the weigh ins for the Farmstrong Alberta Weightlifting Association Olympic Weightlifting competition I’m reminded of the need to settle in.

Settle into the waiting. The nerves. The anxiety. The excitement.

Settle into what’s new. Each competition is new. Settle into what’s old hat and settle into all the moments in between.

This applies to life as well. 

So much comes our way in day to day but if we learn to relax and settle into those waves then we learn to flow. We understand flexibility and we know that nothing is fixed in position.

Settle in. Relax. Breathe. Watch the environment and know that when you are required to respond, you will be ready. 

For now, settle in. You be got this.
