Many of you might not know that I am TERRIFIED of heights and when I set out on my new journey I made a list of things I would love to accomplish and one of them is to get over my fear of them. Today I challenged myself to do just that, I went to the Peak Experiences - they are an indoor rock climbing center (website is http://www.peakexperiences.com/). I was so nervous but ready to give it a try and face the thing that has me terrified beyond belief. I took my Mom (fyi who is 62) she was so ready and she really did surprise me more than I think she knows. I actually made it off the ground - Jeff (our instructor) was kind enough to be so patient with me and then he guided us through the do's and don'ts and what to expect vs what not, he then tightened us in our harnesses then proceeded to lead us to one of the walls. I went first since it was my idea and I have to say I even did better than I thought I would until I looked down (yeah I know a no no) that is when I had to let go (which left me hanging in the air - oh my) - all in all it was a great experience and a great workout (my arms are hurting so bad but in a good way). I am planning on going back in 2 weeks and giving it a try again my goal is to make it to the very top (which is farther than I can ever imagine making it to right now). I encourage all of you to try something that you never thought you could do. I am surprising myself each week with things I NEVER thought I could do - and I know you can to - just get up and try it I know you can think of one thing that you have always wanted to do but never thought possible (believe me I can think of many). I really could just make excuses and sit on the couch and just not do anything or even live life but as I always say, I give myself permission to live the life I choose...........get up and just do it!

I Moved Back to Washington, DC - I planned to write this post months ago, way in advance of our move. When I know I have a lot to say, the thought of starting feels overwhelming. But now the…
