I have never pretended to be the outdoor type. My husband, on the other hand, IS.
I recently became brave and asked him if he’d like to try snowshoeing with me. He agreed, so we both got some shiny new snowshoes for Christmas. In November.
It took a while before we had some snow (and before I had some courage) to try them.
After we got about 16 inches of snow at camp, I had no excuse.
Bill was a skier, so I thought this would be a piece of cake for him.
And so it was.
I, however, was a dramatic failure at skiing and never, ever want to that again.
Snowshoeing reminded me of skiing so I think that was where my, um, lack of confidence originated.
I decided to do the thing I thought I could not do, so to speak.
I’m so glad that I did!!
It was so much fun!
It didn’t take very long to get the hang of it and I can’t wait to try it again!!
Lesson: Be brave! You CAN do it!
What have you been putting off trying because of old limiting beliefs?
