Quote and note

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.”
– Julia Cameron

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!
