Natural beauty.

“Either I’ve pictured myself achieving unmanageable successes, in whatever sport, from the gate, and have therefore doomed myself to be disappointed (as was the case with ice skating) or I have imagined myself dying on the very first try (the first ever kid to pass out and die from a free throw that misses the whole backboard) and have, in those cases, stayed far away from something I would, by necessity, have to be better at than I’d have thought.”
