When I was doing the programme with the guests last week we braved the sand dunes……in the rain. Where oh where has the summer gone to?

At   NuBeginnings I like to make sure that I put my money where my mouth is. It’s no good telling you that it is actually quite fun hoofing your way up a sand dune unless I hoof my own way up it every so often.

Shane worked with us in pairs to make sure that each and every person managed to reach the summit in good cheer – with as much or as little help as we needed. There is a real sense of achievement when you get to the top – trust me.

Before setting off up the dune Shane reminded us that “Fear makes the wolf look bigger” and that actually we can all do much more than we think we can. In this instance not only can we get to the top of the sand dune but that we can do it more than once.

Thank you to Bryan (a guest with is for two weeks) for taking this photo – and allowing me to prove that I did go to the beach and I did reach the summit (though you’re going to have to take my word for that).

So my challenge to you this week is for you to find something that you think you might struggle with and give it a go anyway. We all need an excuse eliminator every now and then. Please do let me know how you do with it.
