Over the years I have always been afraid to try new things for the simple fear of failing or being made fun of. Ok, yes a lot of these fears are from my school days yet that fear of failure really has had a hold of me.
I have learned to bite the bullet and JUST DO IT! I mean what’s the worst that will happen? I have learned to hook a worm on a fishing line simply because I did not want my boys to think I was scared because I was a girl. I have learned to take a fish off the hook (ok, I do use a glove but… still). I have learned to not scream at the sight of a snake, though rodents I can’t help but scream like a banshie, same goes for bats!!! I have waded through the grossness of garbage that piles up and cleaned it when everyone was too busy. I have plunged my share of disgusting toilets clogged by poop that should not be human! I have walked on that plate of glass way up high in the CN Tower (my heart is pounding remembering this). I have jumped through waves in the ocean, amidst the fear of sharks, sting rays and tidal waves for my kids (I have a ridiculous fear of tidal waves and water that I can’t see the bottom of clearly). I rode boats, hanging over the edge throwing up my entire stomach contents as my boys enjoyed fishing. I have become pregnant despite knowing that fear that eats me as I go into labour. I have…
The point is as I age, I am determined to not let fear rule me. Becoming a speaker, I may not be the best, but I am doing it! The best way to get me to do something, especially Sanj, is to dare me! HEHEHE!!!
So… here I am, doing it!
HEHE I know I look ridiculous, it was kinda hard to breathe in there to that is me trying to … This was so scary for me to actually do, so out of my comfort zone!!! BUT… I did it!!!
This was my Max… doing much better and me in the back, mouth open! lol
