You don’t truly let go without trust.
From challenging precision jumps of past years, I’ve found trusting my body’s abilities near its limits to be very difficult and I’ve observed my lack of sensitivity to them. Until 2020.
It was an eye-opening lesson, learned during a precision jump that was tricky but not beyond my abilities.
The difference between this jump and all the previous ones was… a feeling. As I honed in on how my body felt and what my landing would be, the resistance towards the jump melted away from my body along with thoughts of uncertainty. I might have blinked less. During the jump, a sense of warped timelessness enshrouded me.
I jumped and it felt like something had reversed. Something else was doing the jump for me and I was in the best seat to watch it happen.
