Starting out for the very first time reminds me of going for a swim in the lake after its been underneath that icy layer for months. Every step forward into the freezing water gives me the chills. I look back seeing the dry land for escape; however, the longer I stay somehow makes the water temperature warmer. Therefore, starting out new is difficult. It can be uncomfortable and shocking at first. However, once one become accustomed to it, it's hardly noticeable and can even become liberating.
