Here goes nothing!
I have heard and read of this challenge in years past. I have explored the opportunity and created a blog in Summer Fun, but have always been a bit apprehensive of taking part. I’ve felt this way as I know the intelligence of my colleagues. I know their capabilities in writing and reading, and almost fear, for lack of other words, that I may not have what it takes to hang with them.
Friday morning I walked by the room the meeting was being held in multiple times, still avoiding putting myself outside of my comfort level, refusing to challenge myself. There’s always next year, right?
Perhaps it was a friendly text that woke me up (literally and figuratively), or maybe it was a reminder of what I tell my athletes, but what are we if we are unchallenged? Challenges are what make us grow. Struggling is what helps us learn. Stagnancy is easy, but breaching the comfort zone will only make us better in the end.
So now, as I have attempted to write this first post, and edited it about fifteen times, I now am ready to accept the challenge and ready myself to take on this month of March with you all!
