I always wanted to master the ability to do handstands. They just seem like so much fun and an expression of strength and balance. However, before I could do a handstand, I decided I should probably master a headstand. I felt it was a stepping stone since you have to be upside down for both. And I decided to master this one step at a time. First I would master headstands using the wall as a support, then I would master free-standing headstands, and finally I would move on to handstands. I accomplished the first step pretty easily. I gave myself 3 months to figure it out, but I had it down inside of a week. I felt quite confident knowing the wall was always there to support and "catch" me.
