My daughter ran her first 5 K on Saturday. The event does not seem very special until you know some background information. She has never ran before; not even a mile. She is only 11. She finished in just over 40 minutes. She decide to run the race less than a day before it was held.
Sure she walked some of the way, if not most of it and her time is not blow me away wow! But here is the thing….she just jumped in and did it.
I call myself the snail pacer because I like to work at my passions at a pace that does not overwhelm me or the ones I love. I like time to research, to plan, to decide how to best approach things.
Sometimes however, researching and planning just is not needed. Sometimes you just have to jump in with a child like spirit and see how it goes.
Fear entangles so many adults. Fear of failure. Fear of the unknown. Fear of what others will think. If that is where you are right now today I encourage you to embrace the heart of the child within you who once knew no fear. Just jump in and start because it is not until you start that you can say, I did that, and “I did that” whether it be with skill or with difficulty beats “I am thinking of…” by a landslide.
