This is a photo of me in my hammock recently. I purchased this over a year ago and this was the first time I used it. I purchased it because it represents relaxation. I believed if I had time to chill in my hammock then everything must be right in my world. I will tell you that couldn't be farther from the truth. Well, maybe there is some truth in there. I am making time to chill in the hammock even when my world is completely upside down. More on that in another blog entry.
I had many reasons why I hadn't used it yet. I didn't know how to set it up. I didn't want to look like I didn't know what I was doing when I tried to set it up. I didn't want to use it where people could see me. The excuses go on and on. As I think about it, these are the same reasons I haven't done a lot of things. I have been afraid. Afraid to fail or at least appear to fail. I know, FAIL is First Attempt In Learning. Even at 50 years old I am still learning. I hope this inspires you to continue to learn!
