I realized I was letting myself be afraid of falling again – no good! So I decided to try jumping up & down in my skates to boost my confidence & prove I could do it. Besides, if I fell I would realize that falling really isn’t that big of a deal when you’re wearing your pads (something I keep forgetting the longer I go without falling).
My friend Bellacose Blondie reminded me that “it’s all in the knees”. So I went home, got suited up & did it. I did it! Lots of little hops, bending my knees on the landing – totally nailed it!
