We heard from so many people how terribly miserable we would be. We went for it anyway.
We've been here for eight months now. It's mid July-summer in the desert. I can now tell you that yes it's hot. It's the desert. But 115 degrees in the Sonoran Desert is not as bad as 98 degrees in Indianapolis. One word: humidity.
I look at this and I think about the other areas of my life. People usually mean well when put a damper on our dreams. But sometimes we have to take the challenge and go for it anyway.
Everyone telling you it's crazy to train for a marathon? Go for it! No one you know would ever do a triathlon - even better reason to do one! Dreamed of teaching Zumba? What are you waiting for?
Don't be afraid to take a leap of faith and do something you've always wanted to do. Don't let other people's fears hold you back!
You'll be glad you went for your dreams!
