How Skateboarding Helped Me

If you want to do something, then do it. If it requires you learning an entirely new craft, learn it. Take the time to push yourself.

Growing up, if I ever failed something, or fell down, or wasn’t an expert on the first try, I would immediately abandon ship. Skating was the first thing in my life that I actually challenged myself to learn and complete, and because of that, I complete so many super important things and it makes me feel fulfilled.

When I started learning how to board, I couldn’t balance on one leg on flat ground if my life depended on it. But I didn’t give up, and I didn’t let mental or physical barriers stop me. I learned to finish what I start, and learned a skill that makes me look badass.

It’s okay to be scared. Just be scared, and do it anyway. You have nothing to lose if you think about it.  – Catie
