Sometimes it takes our friends to give us a bit of a push to try new things.
Back when we live in Austin Texas I was telling a friend that I had always wanted to fly an airplane. She asked me why I had not given it a try. Since I could not come up with a good answer besides the cost. She looked at me and said, ” lets go check out flying schools. ” We drive up to Georgetown and I talked with some old guys about flying . Within 15 minutes I had my first class , and the cost was under $100 bucks! A few months later I was given an opportunity to take a lesson in this darling.
I would have never given it a try if a friend had not given me a gentle push!
“I have learned, as a rule of thumb, never to ask whether you can do something. Say, instead, that you are doing it. Then fasten your seat belt. The most remarkable things follow.”

I don’t think I would have started painting if a few good friends had not also given me some gentle pushes. I am super thankful for so many good friends!
