In the winter, there is typically an all-adult competition that I enter. It’s a great warm-up and precursor for Adult Sectionals in March. I usually enjoy going for the camaraderie and opportunity to skate my program in front of the judges.
This year, I have elected not to compete.
I have too much on my plate, and I don’t need the added stress. Despite friends pushing me and trying to convince me to go, I decided to focus on other things. There are a few personal stressors in my life that are distracting me. If I had opted to compete, my mind would not have been fully there.
Plus, one event costs something crazy like $170, so it’s not worth it to me at this time.
I’m going to focus on settling my mind and redirecting my energy towards Sectionals next month.
