was recently talking with someone about being brave

made me think back to our trip to Mexico when we went down to the ocean floor wearing these 60 pound helmets… we were there to see the stingrays

we told the team that I was claustrophobic, just in case I couldn’t stay down in the water… I hung onto the rail for dear life, lol… I thought that the divers came by a few times, but apparently they came by every minute or so to be sure I was okay…

but I did it… and have the photo to prove it…

while we were on Maui I tried stand up paddle boarding… and I did it, well, for about five minutes, lol… of course my daughter did hold the board while I got on…

this afternoon I went to the Zoo with friends… we spent some time checking out the new stingray exhibit… this was what had instigated the conversation around bravery… what fun…

the volunteers shared all kinds of information about the display… there are two varieties and twenty-five in total… looking forward to visiting them again;-)… no fear at all for this visit;-)…

took me back to those moments of being so scared, but doing it anyway…
