It is so true! I was sitting at the beach last Sunday watching three people swim across a lake thinking, “Wow they are really fit, I can’t do that! Then last Wednesday I was at the same beach with some friends and one of them said, “I’m going to swim across the lake, anyone want to come?” Before I really thought about it, I said ” I will” then I shrunk back thinking, “What am I crazy?”. I started thinking of all the reasons not to give it a try, what if I get a cramp, it really isn’t safe, I haven’t had lunch yet, I am not fit enough, who will watch the kids, etc…but all the reasons I answered and I wasn’t going to let them stop me. So my friend and I did it! It was very empowering and exciting to know I in fact can do it. We may choose to do it every year at the end of the summer since it gave us such a boost! But really you can do anything if you think you can. So this week pick something that you once thought you couldn’t do, for whatever reason, and as Nike says “JUST DO IT”. You will surprise yourself!
