If you asked me what my favorite piece of equipment was, I would have to say my goggles. Goggles are one of the only ways to show your personality when on the hill.
The other pieces would be helmets & ski boots. But for the most part you usually get your favorite model boot, so you don’t have a say on the color. And a black helmet is usually my go to. I have been in uniform from club team to the national team uniform, and lets face it, we all look the same.
Except for our “identity” pieces.
Identity is who you are, it’s how you carry yourself. These pieces are weirdly important, if you feel good, you perform ‘good’. (I know it should be well but I wanted it to be in sync). Being excited about what you get to wear almost everyday is a game changer.
I ordered these goggles two days before I injured myself, and when I got home they were on my doorstep. Most of us are usually excited to receive a package on your doorstep, but this one had a series of mixed emotions. I was happy and sad at the same time. Yes they were my new favorite goggles, yes I knew it would be a long time until I got to wear them. BUT another thing to look forward to!
I am appreciating all the little things. I am so fortunate. I am the luckiest person in the world to be able to live the life I live.
For now I will be a little kid on Hannukah running around wearing my new equipment. ❤
