I joined a shuffleboard league with a few friends and my partner. Until recently, he had been unable to play due to work, but has made the last two games and our annual meeting last night.
Previously I mentioned quitting my job. Don't get me wrong, to stay there six years meant I must have liked something about it! I did. The people, the organization and believe it or not, the meetings.
Sitting in the meeting lent me a sigh of relief. A pent up breath I hadn't realized I was holding.
This was democracy. I motion it in. Someone seconds it. Motion carried.
I suppose it was a 'geek out' if you will.
During the proceedings, I made a few comments to my partner sharing opinions. He mentioned how passionate I was about it, and for half a second, I was elated, until I realized it wasn't a compliment.
I took offense, and it was another reminder, (it seemed) that maybe I do need to find my own activities.
Success is higher when it's a partnership - and it saddens me that for most of my journey it will be a solo road.
Do you and your partner see differently? How has your health and fitness been affected when coupled with a resistant member? How do you stay passionate, regardless of others opinions?
I clammed up last night, and then when I came home I ate two cookies. wth.
