On Saturday evening, I decided to venture into Philadelphia and go ice skating. This past weekends, the temperatures dipped down into normal range and I could enjoy the ice! I also taught a little boy, Dexter, how to skate. Along with his parents, by the end of the session, he was skating without falling. His parents thanked me for helping them and called me “coach.” What a lovely evening!
Fun fact: 5 years ago on Friday was my first time ice skating and I didn’t know how to do it. And 5 years ago I was afraid of the ice.
5 years later, I know how to ice skate! I taught myself 4 years ago and after a lesson in NYC in 2019, I’m more comfortable and feel confident.
See what overcoming a fear and continuing on after some failures can do! Maybe with some more practice, I can become an Olympic figure skater!
