Stop Waiting and Start Surfing
September 20th, 2010 by Sherry Hess
I met a friend of a friend of a friend in early July at my friend’s husband’s garage band debut. Long story short, my new friend is a surfer and offered to teach me when I said that one of the things on my bucket list is to try to surf.
But then I stopped myself and said, ok….enough with the negatives. Look at the positives of trying to learn to surf. It is something new, different, very LA. Exercise, social, looks peaceful in a crazy sort of way. Why not embrace life and be willing to stretch myself out of my usual comfort zone? Nothing ventured, nothing gained comes to mind!
And then it hit me. This activity is risky. And the reward is completely unknown. That’s the real dilemma…fear of the unknown. Wow. Am I admitting this to all of you? Fear stops us from doing a lot of things. Sometimes for the better…sometimes not.
Well, for those of you who know me, I’m not usually known for being one to pass up a chance to live life outside my comfort zone so—yes, you guessed it—I am going to go for it! Now the question for you my reader is this…. would you stop waiting and start surfing? (to be continued)… In the meantime check out AWR.TV for new channels and videos…
