First I want to thank you for subscribing to my blog! Your support means so much to me as I get comfortable sharing thoughts from my heart and mind. This is a new venture for me and while it's scary starting this blog, I know it will open a whole new world. When something seems scary, it is often the key that opens a magical door. Have you ever overcome a fear or done something you thought you could never do? How did you feel afterward? Accomplished? Confident? Ready to take on the world?

It's the same feeling I had when I tried rock climbing. Scared of heights, I thought "No way can I do this". A good friend talked me into it and I went to the climbing gym. It was extremely intimidating and I was terrified. Everyone was belaying like professionals and climbing seemingly impossible routes, I questioned what I was doing there. I couldn't even climb a ladder and not feel my legs go numb below me, how would I climb up this wall?

I suited up and learned how to tie myself to the line. My friend tied to the other end, all there was left to do was climb. "Dude on wall" I said (that's what you say to let the other person know you're starting your climb) and off I went. One foot, then the other, pushing and pulling myself up. I could feel my back and leg muscles working, it's so much harder than it looks.

I got half way up the wall before I realized how high I was. I looked down and froze; I couldn't move another inch. As I came back down the wall I realized, I did it! I couldn't believe that I climbed a rock wall; I was so proud of myself. I couldn't finish the route but that didn't matter because I didn't think I could do the little bit I actually accomplished. I felt confident and thought,

I am a bad ass!

Overcoming my fear of heights made me feel powerful, like I could do anything. I climbed so many times after that, I was hooked. It taught me that I can do anything. It's cliché and corny but it's true, you really can do anything you set your mind to. The same goes for this blog. I feel like I'm at the wall again tying myself up for the first time, ready to climb. I know I will get that same feeling of confidence every time I complete a blog. I hope you enjoy taking this adventure with me, buckle up!
