Twas T3 years old trying to teach my b year old sister how to dive into a swimming pool from the side of the pool lt was taking quite a while as my sister was really nervous about it We were at a big public pool and nearby there was a woman about 75 years old slowly swimming laps Occasionally she would stop and watch us Finally she swam over to us just when I was really putting the pressure on trying to get my sister to try the dive and my sister was shouting but I'm afraid!! I'm so afraid!! The old woman looked at my sister raised her fist defiantly in the air and said So be afraid! And then do it anyway! That was 35 years ago and I have never forgotten it It was a revelation - it's not about being unafraid It's about being afraid and doing t anyway awesomacious “It’s about being afraid and doing it anyway” Meme
