    I have to smile at this post, having crossed many rivers with you in the Winds these past few summers, knowing your trepidation, and watching you grow through this experience. Way to go!!! Holly

    Very Impressive! The internal dialogue must have been difficult to listen to but you moved past your “Flinch”. (If you haven’t read “The Flinch” yet, please do so. And, it is FREE!) I have to re-read it to get some of the points ingrained in my head as I make habitual flinching decisions. More leaders need to post what you posted about your realization of what choices do (micro-managing even when delegating) to the group. Thank you for your bravery to share your insights with us! ~Jim

    You’re awesome, and as you know, I totally relate to the discomfort of crossing deep rivers and with miserable blister experiences and comprehend your strong desire to avoid both. Great job overcoming that and learning. Kathy

    Sounds like a challenging expedition! I’m glad you got a lot out of it in the end. Including some amazing pictures!

    Talk about jumping in with two feet and splashing around – you were able to look at what you were resisting and realize it was the biggest thing you wanted to embrace. How magical. Thank you for sharing this with the world! I’d follow you anywhere!

    Great post, Shelli! I empathize with the personal deliberation we all, or at least I, went through to build up the confidence to break down our personal barriers and ultimately feel stronger as leaders in the outdoors.
