A friend posted this picture on her facebook page last night. It really got me to thinking of how many times I've started to get out to do some physical activity and been a afraid of how I look,or how people might see me, or that I may fail at what I do. For instance when I go bike riding with my kids, I have to stop and walk every time we come to a steep hill. I catch myself looking around, checking to see if anyone is watching. I have got out at the skating rink with my kids one time. All I could think about was how ridiculous I looked and how out of shape I was. I haven't been out on the skating rink since that one time. I've decided I'm not going to let fear stop me from doing anything anymore. So what if I look funny at first trying. All that matters is I gave it my best shot. Someday I'll be able to pull that hill without stopping. But I have to start somewhere.
