I’ve heard lots of interesting analogies for the kind of thing that I think of as “Type 2 fun”. My good friend Alex refers to those experiences as “filling up your grit bucket” and I love that; every time I’m cold or uncomfortable or challenged (which, at this point in my learning of snow sports, is always 😂), I think of every moment as another contribution to my grit bucket.
@carolinegleich posted a story yesterday about going on the adventure, no matter how small; because even the short, unspectacular climbs are still “deposits into your fitness bank”.
I think there are some great lessons here. If we always turn down that which requires resilience or effort or struggle, we never get to fill our grit buckets; and if we always turn down those experiences that seem average, mundane, or inconsequential, we miss out on depositing into our fitness bank.
I don’t know about you, but I don’t really believe in missing out... I believe in grit buckets and fitness banks, and wise words from wiser people.
Get out there (and bring your dog!).
