MacArthur Park-Wilshire Blvd, , Pedal Boating

On Saturday, I went pedal boating in MacArthur Park on Wilshire Blvd at Alvarado. It was the first time in my life I had ever gone pedal boating. I used to see them in the movies, most of the time the setting was in europe. IT looked like fun so I decided to check it out.

In addition to the boat ride and much more pleasant scenary, I was able to go shopping at the 99Cents Only Store, purchasing several bottles of juice at one third the price of comparable bottles in Skid Row.

The outing was a new step for me. It was the first time I went out on my own. People had to drag me, practically,to events out of the area a few months ago. AT that time I was stuck in feeling that life was hopeless. I did not want to reach for anything because I feared I would not be able to grab onto it. Or once I tasted something that was fun, I would never be able to taste it again. It was that fear that I told you about in a previous post. One has to work out of things like that. I enjoyed time by myself. It was another step in learning how to enjoy life and believing that there was so much to enjoy if I just believed that it could happen.

Some people do not want to do things alone. That is an excuse to remaining in a rut. The excuses are subtle but power in that the end result is that you do not move forward and one lets life pass them by.

So it was a victory for living and for pursuing new experiences. I will be back again.
