Oops. sorry for the double I pushed the wrong button! I had just one more thing to share.
When I was in 2nd or 3rd grade I had a scary moment on a ferryboat. We were crossing a waterway that can be sort of rough. I was in the ladies' room, in a stall when the boat listed heavily to one side and then the other. In that small, confined space the motion was magnified and ever since that day I have had a difficult time with boats. I live in an area where ferryboats are sort of a way of life. Any vacation or fun thing that I ever wanted to do involved travel on a ferry boat. I have never, ever let my fear stop me from going on a boat but it has never been stress free. Recently my husband and I took up sea kayaking (somehow that small boat seems different than a big ferry boat) and are having a great time with it. Today was a gorgeous, crisp clear fall day. We decided to go over to an island nearby and do some exploring. With all the anxiety work I have been doing lately and with the boating familiarity that I have gained through kayaking I realized that my boat stress was non-existant today. It was a great feeling and so nice to have a beautiful, calm moment on the water.
Have a great Monday everyone,
Walk in harmony
