I made it!

I believe most people’s biggest failure in life is not by doing something but by doing NOTHING! Why is it that we would rather stay in a rut to the point of being unhappy rather than getting uncomfortable?! My greatest thrills in life have happened when I was most unsure of my next step. I decided a long time ago that whenever I came to the point where I was thinking about a change, I would GO FOR IT!! I knew taking that step would at the very least, make me proud of myself for trying. Last year my husband and I were in the Bahamas and the resort we stayed at had trapeze lessons. (Hellloooo Carrie Bradshaw!!) I am absolutely terrified of heights, but I saw an opportunity and I didn’t want to pass it up. I even climbed to the top where you grab the trapeze bar and told the guy “I’m sorry, I don’t think I want to do this” as my legs were shaking on the ledge. I remember him shaking his head like he was thinking “this stupid girl is such a waste of my time.” It was then that I thought to myself- I am going to be way more upset by not doing anything than taking action…and then, I JUMPED!! In fact, I went up two more times until I mastered the flip off of the swing that was their trick for the day. People were watching and cheering, but the greatest feeling came from the inside where I was cheering on myself. Sometimes to make a big change in life, you have to start with the smaller things, one step at a time. I continued this trend on our last trip to Jamaica where I jumped off a cliff at Rick’s café in Negril. It wasn’t the insane tallest cliff there, BUT it was a huge leap for me and just as big of a step. I hope to always challenge and push myself into greater things. Life is too short to sit it out on the sidelines! Is there something you have been dreaming about trying?? This is your time to STOP dreaming and START DOING!!
