I've had a comment from Sarah saying how brave I was to take the horse ride at the Bonnie Springs Ranch in Nevada. Oh, that comment really buoyed me up! I had looked on myself as cowardly because I was so frightened and panic-stricken every second of that ride. But now I am going to puff out my chest and think, Well, I didn't just think about how scary that ride would be if I went on it, I actually went to that ranch ... and did it! And that counts for something?
You know, when I go swimming in the winter, the comment I mostly hear from people is, "You're mad!". So, in future, in my head, I am going to substitute the word 'brave' whenever someone calls me 'mad' again. Thanks, Sarah.
