An update: My DD was really struggling 2 weeks ago with her series on beam. She was focused on only what she couldn’t do and not what she could do. It was to the point she was thinking about scratching beam. Then we had a pretty nasty snowstorm (10 inches for us just shuts everything down) and she only had 1 practice this week before leaving for our first out of state travel meet. Fast forward to competition day, she personal bested floor, bars, and beam!! Beam was rocky, but she stayed on! She went from a 7.2 to an 8.35... not a huge score obviously, but a HUGE win in the confidence boosting game. No hardware, no podium, but the smiles were huge and she even said she felt proud of herself. In my book that’s a bigger win than any medal.
