You know I can’t remember how many failures that I have had in life. Honestly too many to count. I never kept track. However they are in the back of my mind. I’ve been falling a lot trying new things wakeboarding and found myself only thinking about the falls. Thinking about my fails! Why???? Well for starters if it weren’t for my many falls I wouldn’t learn anything new. Not to mention what a crappy way to think. If you feel like beating yourself up just think of the many fails you’ve had. How can I possibly move forward in life if I continue to think of all of my fails, or the possibility of future fails. Those fails just make the successes so much sweeter, so much more deserved. Its the getting back up after a fall that makes us feel like a rock star or super hero! So rather than focusing on the falls I’m gonna relish in the fact that I got back up and that I tried!!!
Matt and I are getting ready to take some risks as I mentioned in the last post about a life in Boler Trailer. Taya my girl is taking a risk heading off to university to begin a life of her own. Tristan… well he is still pretty fearless but risks his ego getting bruised as well as his body when he tries new stuff on his wakeboard and skateboard. My kids and husband inspire me to take chances and try new things. We are lucky to have the support of each other.
With only a few weeks of summer I invite you to eat a big shit sandwich!
Try something new.
Toss the fear of failing aside and enjoy a new challenge.
It could be anything from trying a new sport to sharing your art with the world, or trying a new recipe.
Not sure who said it but “the only chances you regret are the ones you didn’t take”
