Sooo I accomplished a HUGE goal of mine a few months ago. The last time I rode a bike I was about 7 years old when my parents took the training wheels off of my bike. I remember my dad holding onto the back of my bike trying to help me get the hang of it. Running alongside me and telling me I could do it. When it was time for him to let go and time for me to trust in myself to ride the bike alone, I fell into the bushes. I begged them to put my training wheels back on and told them I couldn’t ride the bike without them. My dad told me I didn’t need the training wheels, I just needed to believe in myself and try it again. I refused. For years my family tried to get me back on the bike and I wouldn’t do it. Time went on and years passed and I felt ashamed and embarrassed that I could not ride a bike. I thought I was now too old to learn to ride a bike so I just never tried again. But learning to ride a bike was always in the back of my mind. Once I decided to begin my weight loss journey, I promised myself that I would learn to ride a bike. So, on a family vacation to Key West, and a few months before my skin removal on my legs, I decided I was finally ready to try again. My dad was still there holding onto the back of my bike, not letting go, and telling me I could do it. Here I was, all grown up, and my dad was still holding onto the back of my bike and running along with me. He always believed in me, and now it was finally time that I believed in me. I did it!!! I still need a lot of practice but I did it!!! I finally believed in myself enough to let go. I let go of all my fears, doubts and insecurities. Let go of the fact that I was too big, too old or that it was too late. I finally realized for myself, what my dad knew all along. I just had to pick myself up, dust myself off and try again. If you really want to do something, and finally let go of your fears...you just have to believe you can do it; then go crush it! You are not too old, it’s not too late and no dream; no matter how big or small is impossible!
You can’t let the fear of falling keep you from flying.
