OK, so the picture gave it all away... But anyways, today's topic is being on the fence
Have you ever been on the fence about things in your life? I have. I caught up in over-analyzing the situation. When someone says, just go ahead and do it, its easier said than done. What we forget is that sometimes we carry mental incapacities or our past experiences get in the way of us trying new things. There was a time when I was scared of riding horses, because when I was a kid I had such a hard time getting on the horse (I weighed 160 lbs at age 16).
Now at 31, I am actually the same weight (157.9 to be precise as of today) and I can do so many things that I never thought I could.
Just this past weekend, we went fencing at http://www.brooklynfencing.com and I had never been interested in fencing...Ruschelle just drags me to these things. Fencing has been a dream of hers and I am just finding this out after almost 4 years of marriage.
It was a ton of fun, challenging with the gear on, quite a bit of work in movements back and forth (especially the wrist). I was drenched in the hour of practice. It gave me a new found appreciation of some sports that I never considered or thought I would be good at. Having lost weight and being healthy opens so many doors for you its mind boggling.
So go out there and try your dream or create dreams that you never thought existed, don't be on the fence. Go fencing instead.Add a comment
