On Monday I had a little adventure! I drove all by myself from Oshawa to Hamilton, Ontario, about 1 and a 1/2 hour drive through busy Toronto traffic. I wanted to have a visit with my brother and his girlfriend before I head east to NS in a few weeks. Now, to many that may not seem like a big deal, but for me it had been a very long time since I had driven that distance alone especially navigating the busy highway through the city. It was definitely a step out of my comfort zone.
It’s important to note I think, that if you want something bad enough, sometimes you have to stretch yourself a little and do things a little differently than you are used to. I wanted this visit so I made it happen.
It was a beautiful day for a drive and the traffic wasn’t so bad. I played some of my favourite music and it was rather nice to be on a solitary voyage. I felt like a grown up, lol!
I enjoyed a lovely visit with my brother and his girlfriend. They treated me to a nice lunch at a quaint tea room, a little driving tour around town and then back to their house for a nice long chat.
The lesson for this post: Be Pretty, Plus and Proud and never be afraid to try something new. For me it was a car drive. For you, maybe a voyage across the ocean, a yoga class at the local gym, a walk around the block, trying a new food or saying hi to the guy at work you’ve been eyeballing when he’s not looking! The point is to push your limits, step out of your comfort zone and spread your wings. Embrace, learn and grow from trying something new. Don’t let anything stand in your way especially something as insignificant as your weight!
