Trying to find a tittle that represents what you are about to read and summarize it correctly takes a lot of focus and concentration. Taking today very literally but also figuring out the hidden meaning and purpose of today, I came up with this title. Today was Challenge Course day which I originally had an idea that it had to do with like an obstacle course or something that was physically demanding; sort of like a P.E. class --- a long P.E. class.
When we were explained what the course actually was and how it really had nothing to do with climbing ropes and stuff, I felt so naive for trying to figure out the literal meaning of it. I noticed I never try to find another meaning that cannot be visible to just a naked eye.
Throughout the day I was trying to figure out why they named this activity like this and it finally hit me a few hours ago. I finally interpreted it as no restrictions or strings attached to how one person can never stop learning new techniques and ideas.
I participated in a lot of different ways in all the activities and depending on the scenario or situation, I had to change my leadership roles and step back at times because not everything was my area of expertise. I had to put my trust in other people and let them do their thing. During those times, I tried to be as supportive and cooperative as I could and push my comfort zone to the point where I exceeded my expectations. But I also had many opportunities where I was the one who was coming up with solutions or I was the one that my group depended on to finish the job.
