Do you ever come across a picture of yourself and feel proud?! Like ... hey, I did that!
Four years ago, before cancer entered our world, I would look at my hairstylist's surfIng pictures and be in awe of her! I found myself thinking she is a complete badass and then instantly think there was no way I could learn how to surf.
Why?! Because I was terrified of failing and not being GREAT at something from the start.
Full disclosure - it took me 3 years to learn to snowboard because I was too prideful to have a lesson. Guess what happened when I went down the mountain with a snowboard instructor... I learned how to snowboard. Ha!
Cancer taught us that life can change in a minute! Therefore, Matt and I really began to reevaluate our bucket lists. What did we want to experience in this life?!
One of those things was surfing for me! Last year, I took my first lesson in California and this year I took a second lesson in Costa Rica. I’m not even close to expert level BUT I had so much fun! In the end, my success rate didn’t mean anything because what truly mattered was that I tried something new!!!! The courage it took to be vulnerable enough to try something I have always wanted to do led to a life experience and countless memories! And that is what makes a life worth living!!!
What would you do if failing didn’t matter and living was the objective?! Live Moore!
