I went to my little bro's bday part sat night at a skate park. And there I was standing on top of a slope with my skateboard hanging off the edge. My heart was pounding i was sweating. I was so fearful of failing. I didn't want to fall. I watched my bros and all their friends fall again and agian and you know what they literally just got right back up no sweat. It was so inspiring to watch 10 and 11 yr olds so fearless and carefree having funa dn challenging themseleves. I stood up there for no kidding 20 min. I was going to skate down not walk down. there was no options in the matter it was only a matter of when. I woudl count down and then chicken out. And all I could think was I can do this I can face my fear and I can be raw!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! How does this tie in? well it's about life and choices you get to make. it's about learning and having a blast. Challenging yourself and suceeding. I did skated down the slope and guess what thats right I fell flat on my bottom all 4 times I tried. mind you i'm really bad at skate boarding. I was fearful in trying which is why I fell but hey I still went down and have the bruses to prove it. today is day #15 100%(that is whithout going insane) raw. the lesson I learned was just do it just dive in you will fail but you can do it again. with raw and with life.
