I took a group of teenagers skating.Some had been before & others had not.
What became quickly apparent was that you can't learn to skate by hanging onto the side.
In order to learn you have to take a chance,be prepared to fall over & even get hurt a bit.
Like so much in life it's more about letting go of our fear,having a go & getting up and starting again
if we fall...oh & having some fun & laughter too!
