    Overcoming My Fears: Learning to hula hoop at Grand Canyon

     
    Four of my girl friends and I went to the Grand Canyon. Two of the girls had brought hula hoops thinking it would be a great photo opportunity. I am terrified of heights and was scared to go close to the edge, plus I never learned how to hula hoop as a kid. I was just going to hold a hula hoop while one of the girls took a pic. With the gentle encouragement of my friends, I stood closer to the edge than ever before. Embarrassed, I admitted that I didn't know how to hula hoop and wasn't about to try in front of hundreds of tourists. My friends, sweet as they are, coaxed me into trying. I only managed to keep it up for about a minute, but we got this awesome picture!
