You Got Handstand

You practice day after day.
Some days are harder than others.
Some days you don't even have the will to try.
Eventually it becomes clear
It isn't your strength holding you back;
It's your fear.
You choose to face your fear.
You keep practicing
Day after day
Until one day
Seemingly out of nowhere
As if you haven't been working at it
As if it was always willing and available to you
You get handstand.
It's yours:
Five breaths
Ten breaths
Fear of falling is no longer an obstacle.
Your strength of will won the grace.
What once seemed impossible is now yours.
You got handstand!
Do you hear me? 
Do you know what this means? 
Now the question is
What else do you want?
