Is there one thing you always wished you were a little better at? Something that could enhance your life but is very difficult for you?
One thing I have always struggled with is public speaking. If I am with only one or 2 people, it is not an issue. But whenever I am in a room with a larger crowd, I have a very difficult time joining in the conversation. Writing is completely different. I think this is because I have time to formulate my thoughts and make adjustments as I go along.
It's not that I do not wish to join in the conversation. I enjoy listening to people talk about their experiences . The difficult part for me is that my shyness can be misinterpreted. It is not that I am not interested in the discussion. I never intuitively know the right time to jump in. Sometimes I will have a thought, but before I can formulate the words to express it, the topic has changed! I know funny, but this is something I have always struggled with.
This is one of the reasons I love writing this blog. It is an opportunity for me to express my ideas and opinions in a public forum. I have the time to carefully plan each posting and what I am trying to say. I am writing about a subject that is very near and dear to my heart. I know from personal experience how much better I feel when I incorporate exercise and a healthy diet in my daily routine. Sharing my ideas and personal struggles with others passionate about health and fitness helps keep me motivated to stay in shape.
