One of the interesting challenges of life is NONE OF US IS EVER READY, for all sorts of reasons. The key is just to jump in!
My sister-in-law loves to hike. When in Mexico, she went on a favourite hike from Boca de Tomatlan to Las Animas with friends from the Ladies Outdoor Club Adventures P.V. – L.O.C.A. On the trail, if you hike up a rock face beside a waterfall, you can jump into the pool under the waterfall for that refreshing tingle of cold water on your overheated body. Up she hiked. That was a challenge; she has a fear of heights.
During the moments of being hot and sweaty, the thought of jumping in the cool water was stronger than her fear. Reaching the top and looking down into the water she realized she was caught between a rock and a hard place! Hike down the rock face? No way. Jump into the water? No way. The fear of heights had literally washed over her. Forty-five minutes later, through much encouragement of friends, knowing she was not going to backtrack down the rock face, she JUMPED IN.
Ever been in a place where you are paralyzed? Fear to go backward. Fear to go forward. Find encouragers to surround you and make a move! JUMP into the clear cool water.
