Can you believe its almost March? I certainly can’t. I also can’t believe we have been blogging for about two months. It sounds like a small accomplishment, but for me, it’s huge. The whole never have I ever idea is so awesome, but it’s sometimes hard for me to exicute. When I do something fun that’s new I get so excited to blog about it, but when I can’t think of anything, I tend to just get anxious. It’s also wayyyy easier for me to just keep doing what I do- get up —> go to work —> do work —-> go home/to YL/to the gym—> go to bed—-> repeat. And then, the week is gone. Another week of doing basically the same things, seeing the same people.
This experience has made me realize that to really change and enjoy life, you have to take risks. I always err on the side of caution, or wanting to sit and watch reality tv (alone) instead of do something new. I’ve had to really stretch myself and block out that internal voice that says, nooo, just go home and watch tv, no big deal! Because those days turn into weeks, and weeks into months, and then I’m suddenly looking back on a full year of not really branching out.
Although the things I’ve done this year so far haven’t been wildly amazing, I still feel a sense of accomplishment. It means that I’ve pushed myself to look outside the box, get out of my familar comfort zone, and do something new. I’ve made laundry detergent, I’ve joined a brand new small group, I’ve made a fool of myself at Zumba. These things may not sound that great, but it’s exciting to look back and realize I really did do something new! And I enjoyed it!
I can’t wait to see what this year brings. Things are just getting good.
