The last 3 weeks I chickened out. There is a free class taught every Sunday at 4:30 in my town. I had no excuse. But every Sunday, I would not go. Why? Because I was scared. I was nervous I wouldn’t be able to do it, I didn’t want to look stupid, what if it was too hard, etc… But yesterday I said “I’m going!” I got on my bilke and rode over to the studio.
