" You cannot learn to skate without being ridiculous. The ice of life is slippery." George Bernard Shaw
Life is difficult but it can be a hell of a lot of fun. Sometimes we miss out though, why? because we don't want to look foolish or dumb when we try something new.
Well what is wrong with us why are we sidelining our lives.? Why are satisfied with simple and safe. Well, because we are afraid someone will laugh and find us silly.
The silly part is we are cutting ourselves short. We are living a half life. Every time we choose to not do something we are giving up part of our souls, our hearts and our strength.
Why are giving up thinking someone may laugh? , Well someone might find us courageous or inspiring or at the very least intriguing. So what if we look silly , everyone does now and then . Embrace your silliness, it means your human.
As soon as I get the okay from my doctor to exercise again I am going to learn to run on a treadmill. Then I am going to take that Zumba class my friend is always begging me to do, since she teaches. Yes me, two left feet and no rhythm . Even If I look silly it is still something I want to do.
No more half life for me, No more leaving stuff undone and for others. No more wallflower and watching life from the sidelines.
Let me know what silly thing you accomplished how strong and mighty it made you feel . Did you remember how silly you looked or what you accomplished later?
