Have you ever wanted to do something and got your self really pumped up just to back out at the last minute? I know I have, there have been a lot of things that I wanted to participate in but didn’t. Getting out of your comfort zone is something for me that has required some work, but something that I am thankful I have been trying to do. Public speaking and having to meet new people is something that has really been a challenge for me. Now, the people that know me probably think this is crazy, I mean I did work at a restaurant for 10 years. I have come out of my shell quite a bit and continue to do so on a daily basis.
Now the real reason for this blog is to brag about my kiddo. The last few weeks, I have been able to watch her while she participates in her extracurricular activities. Gymnastics has been the highlight for the last couple of weeks, it has been an amazing journey getting to watch how far she has come. I have seen her tell her coach, that she did not want to do a cart-wheel, but then after a conversation with her coach, she went and did it anyway. I have seen her become so brave and try her best to do toe touches on the balance beam.
While this is amazing and great, Monday we did a big thing. She had her first horseback riding lesson. She was so excited yet so scared at the same time. Now, I was worried the whole time. I was afraid that she was going to change her mind at the last minute. She did the total opposite. She soared. I quietly snuck away and watched her from the sidelines. After her lesson, she was beyond thrilled. There are no words to describe how overjoyed she was and how happy it made me. I am thankful that my family and I are able to provide her with opportunities to get her out of her comfort zone and try new things. Looking forward to seeing what the future has in store for her!
As always share some love, we could all use a little more love!
P.S. – There may be a new horse whisperer in town
