I’ve never been an athlete. In fact, I chose to take up dance as a child because you got to dress up in frilly costumes, practice inside and perform on a stage. I wasn’t too keen on the idea of sweating outside in the sun, surrounded by bugs, dirt and all that jazz (insert comedic drums). So, when the opportunity came to me to play flag football I was a bit hesitant to say the least.
But this is the year about making changes and going outside my comfort zone. With that in mind, I agreed to join the fun and slap on a flag. I went to practice, met new coworkers, put on a “jersey” (well, a matching team T-shirt), took the field, and learned that I’m still no athlete – but that’s OK. I’m glad that I tried something new, and it may just inspire me to do things like this more often.
