I finally had my first motorcycle ride! It wasn't as bad as I expected, but I was a little nervous on taking the curves. I expect it will get better as time goes by and I grow more comfortable riding with my man - who looks hot in his chaps, Harley shirt and shades! *smile*
On today's ride, I had no choice but to go with the flow - which is so not me! I've never been a risk-taker. I've always played it safe and retained at least some control - out of fear. Fear of getting hurt (physically or emotionally), rejection, of not being good enough, and of what others would think.
In turn, I've lived my life standing on the sidelines watching others do things I wish I were brave enough to try. Fear has been the controlling factor for most of my life. Now, I am ready for change. Slowly, but surely, I am facing my fears one by one.
I am growing.
I am LIVING.
