This blog began in 2010 as part of the publisher’s promotional materials for my travel book, The Single Girl’s Guide to Meeting European Men. The book rose to #1 on Amazon’s Best-Sellers List within two weeks of publication, and is still selling. The blog has been expanded to cover my other pursuits.

Wakesurfing for the First Time

July, 27, 2015

Somehow, I managed to make it through life until now without wakesurfing. If you haven’t tried it yet, get your suit on and find that boat, board and driver. Being on top of the water with the breeze catching your hair and the landscape flying by is surreal. This picture was taken before my first wakesurfing experience, which I didn’t want to end…but it unavoidably did when I went belly-flopping:)

My friend Cole is a wakesurfing master and patient teacher. Seriously, few people are as good. Later this week, I’ll post the footage–good, bad and embarrassing–of my first experience.

In the meantime, for Meeting Men Monday, I’m sharing one of Coal’s insights to mastering happiness: “If you can pinpoint the area of your life that is causing you the most fear, you will most likely find that it is the same area that is exhausting you.”

I believe this applies to every aspect of life, including dating. We enter many situations where we don’t know the outcome—if someone is going to like us, if we will succeed in a school course, or if we will be hired for our dream job and do well. But we have a better chance of succeeding if we know our worth and can go forward without fear.
