Ever felt this way? It's been a week of that for me, complete with hair-pulling, scowls, and head-in-hands moments.
As I reflect back on the week, I see that often the things we approach with trepidation prove to be the things we end up liking most.
Case in point. The Durham Fair. Many of you wrote about rides you went on this weekend - and you were scared to do it. You did it anyway. What started out as fear on the pages you shared: Head shaking back and forth I said to my friend, "I don't think I can do this."
Turned to sheer joy: As the zipper climbed to its highest height and hung there, my friend and I rocked it back and forth. We spun around and around and around, screaming our heads off and laughing. When the ride was over we got right back in line to do it again.
Sometimes we have to push the fear down, say, "step-aside," and do the thing that scares us.
For your notebook this week write about something that scares you and write yourself conquering it. If you have stage fright, write about stepping into the limelight and belting out your favorite song - and doing it well. Write about the thunderous applause that will greet you.
Go. Write. Have fun with it, and let me know how it goes.
