Exercise Wednesday: I really did that

January 21, 2015

Last week, I toyed with the idea of including Walk of Shame by Pink in the post. Couldn’t do it, issue with the lyrics. But it got me thinking about Pink’s 2014 Grammy performance, one of the most incredible things I’ve ever seen.

Pnk is known for performing with ribbons. Not the kind of ribbons you put on packages. And not the kind you jump around with in rhythmic gymnastics.

She uses the kind that hang from the ceiling and invite you to do complicated gymnastic moves above a live audience without a net beneath you. Unfortunately, I can’t find a version I can embed here, but follow this link. It’s worth watching.

If you want to be further amazed, she was singing during that performance. Pink doesn’t lip sync.

How does it feel to accomplish something like that. It doesn’t have to be showing off amazing core strength and aversion to vertigo by risking your life on live television.

It could be completing a marathon or that first novel or giving birth to a baby or retiring. It could be looking back at your life as you prepare to breath your last and being content and satisfied.

Today, a character has accomplished something and has a moment to really think about it–or not.

At the end of the prompt, we should know how it feels to accomplish something truly amazing.

Time limit: 30 minutes
