You may remember that I set out this summer to live life with more joy in it, to participate, to join in, be impulsive and step outside my comfort levels – and I told you how I got on in this update post too.. I’m now home from the house in Wales but I wanted to bring you my finale to ‘Living Life with Joy’ series with what worked out to be the climax of letting loose and doing something I NEVER imagined I would or could do
I went wakeboarding – yes you can stop laughing now – I poured myself into a damp wetsuit and set out with my Sister In Law Gemma to go on a wakeboarding lesson, the weather was rubbish and we nearly bottled it several times before we got there.Nervous as hell wondering why on earth I was even attempting this
This is big for a couple of reasons, 18 months ago I could have NEVER got in a wetsuit, I would have been too overweight, inhibited, ashamed, and frankly in pain, suffering from back, pelvis and knee pain which all miraculously disappeared when I took the weight off and removed the strain on them all. Im 37 FFS, and had 3 kids…I used to watch other people water ski and wakeboard and think ‘I’d love to do that but I cant’ and now… I CAN… I DID IT and here is the proof.
on the return leg – properly proud of myself
I honestly cant tell you ow much I enjoyed this – I LOVED it and will definitely be back for more, I’m pricing up wakeboards so we can do this off the back of the boat – I just cant wait, so my challenge to you is to find something that you always fancied doing but for whatever the reason you didnt do it.
Call them up, make the appointment and go – I just KNOW you wont regret it, step outside your comfort zone and do something amazing
