A couple of days ago my family went to Red Rocks Amphitheater in Colorado.  I am not ashamed to admit that I am scared of heights. I am overly cautious.  When we got there the snow was still fresh from the day before.  I yelled at my husband a couple of times to keep his eyes on the road instead of looking at the beautiful landscape ahead or down below the road.
My love for Red Rocks started when I started watching Extreme Weight Loss with Chris and Heidi Powell.  They are like angels/life savors.  The show makes me cry every time I watch it.  I love when they take their clients to Red Rocks.  I love seeing the clients push and fight to finish climbing the stairs at the amphitheater.  They have such endurance.
So when we got there, we were at the very top of the steps or balcony.  My husband asked If I wanted to climb down.  I quickly said "No".  My excuse was because the snow was still on the steps, I might fall, my son might fall, what if it was too slippery, ... way to many excuses.  I stood there at the top and looked down at all these people that were already down.  I started to get mad and sad.  Mad because I am so scared to do anything and sad because I  was keeping my son and husband from
enjoying our day at Red Rocks.

I looked at the mountains ahead and asked God to help me just relax and enjoy the day.  I knew that if I didn't go down I was going to regret it as soon as we left and I would have to live with that regret for the rest of my life.  Theres already enough regret in my life adding another one would just...
