A Splash of Adventure!

Have you ever been afraid to try something, but felt left out because everyone else is having fun except you? Sometimes, all it takes is a little bit of courage to discover a bold new side of yourself!

 

My name is Candace. I live in a small ocean town. My friends and I love going to the cliffs and hanging out. We are all great swimmers, but I am the only one who cannot dive. I am afraid of heights. It has never bothered me before, but every time I see my friends jump from Lookout Point, while I walk down to the water below, I feel like I’m missing out. Every time we go to the cliffs I make up an excuse to not dive. But secretly I would love to be able to jump with them.

My best friend’s name is Robyn. We have been friends since we were 5 years old. Robyn is an awesome diver and has many medals. She has tried to get me to dive before, but I always turned her down. Day by day I just lost interest.

One day, Robyn came to my house, like she does almost every day. She brought some snacks with her. “Hey, Candace, try these. I guarantee you’ll love them!” She offered me a bag of Corn Puffs I had never seen before But I had my regular potato chips already. “No thanks. I’m good with my potato chips.” She kept offering, but I kept turning her down. Robyn continued eating her snack, but told me, “You need to try

 

I woke up the next day and planned on meeting Robyn and the gang at the cliffs. As I was getting ready, I noticed Robyn left behind some of her AwsumSnacks Corn Puffs. I thought about what she said, and opened a bag of Corn Puffs. It was a brand new sensation for my taste buds. I had never tasted anything like it! What else have I been missing out on? I met Robyn and our friends at the cliffs. I took her by the hand and we both walked cautiously to the edge; we looked at each other and before jumping yelled, “NO REGREEEEEETS!” It was the most awesome feeling ever!

When I surfaced, I heard cheering and clapping. My friends were so proud of me! It felt great. We spent the rest of the day taking turns jumping off Lookout Point and eating AwsumSnacks Corn Puffs.
That day I learned something about myself. I can do anything with the encouragement of great friends; a little motivation and willingness to be bold and adventurous.
