My son has recently taken up skateboarding. He is slowly learning how to stay on the board and steer the board with his feet. Over the past several weeks we’ve visited a couple of local skate parks where he has cautiously been testing out some of the small ramps by going half way up and then coming back down.
My son has also been educating me on all the cool skateboard lingo…hippy jump, ollie, kickflip, grind, rock and roll, 360, 1080…
It occurred to me as I sat and watched my son embark on this new journey that skateboarding is a great reminder to me how it sometimes feels when we choose to leave our comfort zones and roll down unfamiliar paths.
We are shaky, unsteady, unsure
it’s beautiful and irresistible
