One of our routes while walking our dogs include crossing an avenue. We cross it on a curve where it’s clearly marked for crossing and where we can see if cars are coming. I always take my time making sure there are no cars coming or that a car has stopped to let us cross.
This specific part of the walking route, where we have been walking for years, used to make me very nervous and I hated it. As time has gone by I have gotten used to it, we are still very careful, but it doesn’t cause me as much stress as it used to.
A few years ago we were walking with some of my mom’s friends and they took a video of me walking across. Today, my mom took another video of me crossing as I walked my dogs.
I want to share this video now to show how I have been able to overcome my biggest fear, which is crossing an avenue. When I do this now, I am not only looking out for myself, but for my two puppies too.
