It sounds like you have made the right decision for yourself. If you were no longer enjoying competitive gymnastics it just isn't worth it. I am so glad to hear that you are still going to be able to continue to do gymnastics but on your own terms.:)

Good for you, great choice to find a way to continue doing what you love without having to feel badly. I am very impressed with the maturity you have shown in making this choice.


That is wonderful Rachelle! Sounds like you will have a lot more fun doing that then competative gymn. I hope you have a great time. If you decide that you like competative gymn again, you can always go back because you won't have forgotten everything like you would if you had quit.
