To me it almost had nothing to do with the paddle, but it had everything to do with setting out to accomplish something that was super intimidating, that was unknown to me, something I knew I had a good chance of failing at, but then going ahead and doing it anyways, and slowly but surely proving myself wrong. --Jodie Nelson
