Facing fears and winning at it



The idea of going half way across the country, driving, with just my son and I sounded like such an adventure when I started to plan it.  We planned stops all along the way to visit family and friends.  Little did I know how much he would teach me on just days 3 & 4.  When we started this 23 day journey we decided we would conquer frights and fears at some of our fun stops.  Let me tell you, B has superseded any expectation I could have ever had.  He is not a fan of snakes, and he held one.  Yes, it took some persuasion, of about 4 people, but he did it.  He does not like to be very high, but he conquered a medium sized rock climb at the zoo and even jumped down.  BUT....the most amazing thing he did was go up 7 stories high and seriously smash his height fear by “tackling” a very large and fast water slide. I am just in a awe of his newfound bravery.  

I am 38 years old, and I would never let someone “talk me” into holding a spider the way he decided to hold a snake.  I sure as heck would not jump down from a high place for fun.  And I can surely promise you that no one could even drag me and push me down a slide that high. 

So, the rest of our trip I will be taking lessons from my amazing, inspiring, 11 year old son and gathering the courage to face some fears. 





If you missed the first few days of our journey please be sure to visit and like our Facebook page to see what other shenanigans we may get into.

I’ll be back soon!

Carly Everywhere I look I see people struggling with weight loss and unsure of what program to follow to lose weight. I see a lot of people convinced that they must count calories/macros/points to lose weight. When I tell them they can let that go and simply count time, they don’t trust me.
