Recently I found a picture of kids gleefully jumping into a pool and thought about how I don’t do that.
I always stick my toe in and moan about how cold the water is. Eventually I inch in painfully, slowly adjusting to the water temperature. As the water gets higher I pause, first to get my feet, then my legs used to it. Slowly I get in up to my shoulders.
This process takes forever. Jeez.
Eventually, I get brave enough to plunge in and stop torturing myself.
Hesitation. Procrastination. Missed Opportunity.
Three things that always get in the way of doing. of being. of enjoying.
It has taken me forever to allow myself the time and space to start this blog. I have hesitated for so long. Opening up seems so exposed. So vulnerable.
Which is what hesitation is all about really. Worry and self-judgment. I know it's better to just get the initial shock over with and move on. It get's better over time.
So here it goes. I'm taking the plunge. Jumping into the Pool.
This blog post is the start of a new journey!
