Fear of the unknown

I did something today that I thought I would NEVER do……I went whitewater rafting as part of a team building event at work. Building up to the event I was miserable about it. I didn’t want to go because I thought my weight and my non-athleticism would be an issue. Let me tell everyone, it is NOT an issue. And it was an amazing experience!  I had an absolutely amazing time!  It dawned on me that I was using my weight as an excuse. What the real problem was, was that I was terrified of the unknown aspect of it. 

If we let our fears control us though, we will never experience anything!  We would never find out if there is something we absolutely love doing!  I say, throw caution to the wind every once in a while and do something completely outside the box!  You might hate it, or it may be something you absolutely love!  You won’t know unless you try it!
