I’m engaged!…

… to Precision Nutrition and my team, of course.

My coach suggested it — a virtual commitment ceremony! Find an item to wear that will be the outward symbol of your commitment to the program. What a great idea!

My item is a bracelet that I got last year at the Women’s Quest Colorado Retreat. The parachute cord held the entire group together, and then afterwards, we were each given our own piece to signify how we were all one part of the whole.

That retreat was an eye-opener for me; I went in expecting a week of hiking and biking and yoga, and what I got was a week of feelings, feelings, crying, feelings, crying, feelings … oh, and hiking, biking and yoga. By nature, I’m a reserved person — I’m very not-at-all touchy-feely, so to speak, but that week taught me that sometimes you really need to be open and vulnerable to be able to grow as a person. And so that’s something I’ve been working on since then, with varying degrees of success.

So for me, I commit to being open. Being vulnerable. Sharing my true self. Not always saying “I’m fine!!” when things aren’t going well. Allowing others inside, trusting I’ll be safe.

Like my tattoo says: Let go and live…

(note:  the scar above isn’t part of the tattoo… that’s a fun softball injury from 10 years ago)
