Do you ever feel like you're facing a big thing that you just want to run away from? Kinda like that monster under your bed when you were really little?
Maybe it's a big test at school, or a new club you're joining and you have to go to the first meeting alone. Maybe your big monster is a change in your school - meeting new friends and learning new ways.
No mater how big your monster is - I'm learning that the best thing we can all do is face it. Yup, you heard my right - face that big bad thing.
You know what? Once you face it - it won't be scary anymore.
Take me and jumping for example. I was really scared at first - those jump things sure don't look like anything I've seen in the wild. But then - mommy helped me face one of those scary jumps. Once I jumped just one, I felt the wind n my mane and the happy in my heart. That's when I knew those little jumps weren't scary monsters. Not at all. They were just new and different.
Well, these days I have a new jumping partner - Sydney. She and I are jumping some new things and last Friday we were looking at the biggest thing I'd ever seen. It was HUGE and really really scary. Wow. "I can't do that - it's too scary," was my first thought.
But then Sydney helped me find the courage to step up and face this new Monster. First, we walked over to it so I could inspect it really good. I sniffed it and kicked it - sized it up and was still a little unsure. But after I kicked it a few times, I figured out it wasn't really that scary- even if it is higher than my armpits!
Check out what happened next!
The video is a bit blurry I'm told - but the jump wasn't blurry at all! That jump is over 2'9" high - which for me is really really big. But with a bit of encouragement and belief from Sydney and the gals (including my proud Mama) - I DID IT!
You can too. Whatever scary thing is standing in your path - you can jump over it. All you have to do is trust yourself, trust those who love you, step up to it, take a deep breath and jump. It's never as scary as it looks - and you'll be wondering what was so scary once you take that first leap!
Remember - the sky's the limit when you are Unstoppable!
