Limitations and Aspirations
Monday, April 09, 2012
I’m starting to get sick of the limitations I have because of my weight. There is a pretty exhaustive list but basically I’m over it...the whole thing! I feel this runner-adventurist-biker-risk taker-swimmer-hiker-yoga obsessed person in me that’s waiting to get out. One of my biggest limitations, which I’ve mentioned before, is traveling…and more specifically seating and seat belts.
Even driving in cars sometimes is hard because the belt won’t reach and the stupid car keeps beeping for me to put it on. Also, whenever I get asked anywhere my first reaction is “where will I sit?” I HATE worrying about this. I mentioned I have a trip coming up for work to North Carolina. It’s next month and I asked my boss if I could not attend and he told me that I indeed had to. I’m already an emotional nutcase about it. I get sick to my stomach thinking about having to sit uncomfortably for a number or hours and embarrass myself in front of staff and other travelers. Basically my worst nightmare in an airplane shaped form.
The worst part of all this is that I love to travel. In fact, I would really love a job in international business. I really want to go to all over the world but the traveling piece always makes me pause. Here are my top 3 locations I will visit:
Trinadad and Tobago
So, I WILL travel and explore and become that person I want to be. I’m struggling everyday with it and I’m probably not doing my best all the time but it’s a hard thing for me. I’m going to keep working at it until I’m in Moscow or Trinidad and I’m being the adventurist I always wanted to be.
