Climbing Toward Trust
Not many people take up an extreme sport like rock climbing at my age, but I believe that no matter what your age, trying new activities always results in new gifts. So now, I'm a rock climber. For me, the biggest gift that rock climbing has provided - besides becoming totally ripped - is learning to trust. This includes trusting life, belay partners, and myself. When your life literally depends on the skills and attention and care at the other end of the rope, there just ain't no room for bull.
