I realized I didn't just improve my skills as a gymnast. After today, I grew as a person. Because on days like these, if you can push yourself one step further, that's when you get immeasurably stronger.
At some point or other, we have all thought about giving up. No matter what the task it, we get to a point where we can no longer see the light at the end of the tunnel. Sometimes the hardest thing to do is to make it to the finish line.
The worst thing you can ever do is give up. Acting is such a tough business to break into that my friend was about to give up, but just a few nights ago, I watched from my living room as she performed on the Tony Awards.
