How do you live life fearlessly?
On my trip to Spain earlier this month, I decided to throw caution to the wind and try my hand at kayaking. As some of you may know, my husband is a Kayaker and represents Jamaica in national competitions.
I have been asked on many occasions if I also Kayak. Now, I am not one to do activities that include going too fast or too high so my response is usually… “No, It’s not for me”. Another reason why I had not tried kayaking is because the weather in the UK gets very cold. And to be honest, many of the water-ways here in London are not very clean looking.
Anyway, the day after Tony’s race we had some spare time and I announced (out of the blue), that I wanted to try my hand at kayaking. Well that was it, once I had made that decision I had to do it. I had somehow overcome my fear, and had an urge to try something new.
We got on the water and what an experience! I had a wonderful time! We paddled for approximately 7 kilometres, which was nothing to Tony (he does more than this twice a day during his training sessions). However, this was quite a distance for a first-timer like me. The views were breathtaking and memorable. It will go down as one of my best life experiences thus far. And to think if I had stayed within my comfort zone and given into my fears I never would have had that amazing experience.
What would you love to do but fear is holding you back?
There must be a number of things that you would do to live life fearlessly. It does not have to be something adventurous, it could be public speaking or starting that business you have been thinking about. Create a list and ask yourself this question. What is the worst thing that could happen? You will probably find that the advantages outweigh the fear.
My advice to you is to seize the moment, take the chance, life for living. Overcoming your fears can open you up to amazing and life changing experiences.
Commit to conquering something that is on that list. Let me know what you are going to do in in the comment section below. I would love to hear from you.
Remember to live life fearlessly!
Until next time!
