confidence: just another byproduct of a healthy life
Tuesday, October 25, 2011
So, a week or so ago I was talking with a friend of mine about dating and I was telling him the reason I don't date is that all my guy friends are too young for me (I hang out with a college group, they're all about 4 years younger than me) and the second reason is that I lack confidence.
I always wait for a guy to like me. I never know how to go after someone I like.
Well, that changed last weekend. I was at a church retreat, hanging out with friends. One friend in particular is a guy I've sort of liked for a couple years. It took me all weekend, but I finally worked up the courage to say, "Hey, I like you."
That's right, I showed off my confidence.
In the past I would have just kept flirting with him, wondering if he liked me and wondering if he knew I liked him. But not this time. My hard work on SparkPeople of eating healthy, exercising regularly, and losing weight gave me the confidence to take one step forward in following my dreams.
I'm scared to death of where the next steps will take me and how everything will work out, but I was able to take the first step.
