For me 2012 was all about pushing and learning to have fun and being ok with being selfish. I have learned a lot about myself as well – like did you know I used to be so uptight that I would have an anxiety attack if I didn't get the garbage out the night before garbage day. Seriously if I went to bed before I took all the garbage outside I would seriously lay in bed and almost give myself a heart attack. Can you say wound up a little too tight? Moving on past my weirdness…
One of the challenges I've given myself lately is to get out of my comfort zone and do things I normally wouldn't do and for me that means go to social functions or gatherings of people. I don't know if it is the germs or the fact that I have to be interested in someone or something else but I would rather stay home and do nothing then go to a get together, join a team, or have girlfriends. I don't like drama or people who create it and I especially don't know when to keep my mouth shut so sometimes I can get myself into a bit of trouble with this old mouth of mine.
Back to what this post is all about, I joined a softball team! What?! Yep, its the truth I decided to take my competitive self out and join the team instead of subbing this year. Seriously I am extremely competitive and a beer league might now be the best thing for me but hey I'm getting out and talking to people. There goes my comfort zone!
One of the reasons I joined the team is because I'm part of the Under Armour What's Beautiful Campaign! The campaign is all about redefining what's beautiful and getting out there into the world and pushing your limits! You set a goal and conquer it, you can join teams for encouragement or just post as you go. Under Armour has put some amazing prizes out there for everyone to win as well! So join me on my journey, I'd love to have you on the Real Momma team!!
The moral of this story? Getting out of my comfort zone and showing you that if I can do it so can you!
