Non-climbers tend to think rock climbing takes this enormous amount of courage; probably because most non-climbers seem to think that rock climbing entails “soloing like that guy on 60 minutes”. Well … I’m not that brave. I get scared. I get hyperventilating, Elvis leg-shaking, might-have-just-peed-my-pants scared. And 9 out of 10 times there is a moment where I picture myself being carried away from the crag on a stretcher. I’m not that brave. I think a lot of us are scared. I don’t think we climb because we are so courageous; I think we climb because there’s just something indescribable about topping out in spite of all the fear.

Well said well said.
People change. And I felt that I am undergoing change too.
A year gives you enough time to grow and change.
Change your perspectives,
Change your priorities,
Change who you hang out with,
Change who’s influencing you, who’s inspiring you.
I became less fearful of the future, cos I know, when I fear, I will be blinded by it. Blinded by the changes I’ll see and I won’t be able to embrace it fully.
Fearful makes you less hopeful too.
We live by hopes. Hope is our soul.
