Need some help... and a revelation

Wednesday, March 20, 2013

So first, since I know my SparkFriends are fantastic, I get to make my own title for my part-time job with a previous employer and I am looking for something great. I used to be office manager, now I'm looking for something like "partner in awesomeness" or... yeah. I wish I had a better idea but that is why I'm asking for help.

To the revelation, I had my first kettlebell class/lesson last night and I really enjoyed it. I really did have a great time. I think I may have a hard time quitting when my deal ends but it is kinda expensive and a bit of a drive. When I get my running weather back I may be in a better mindset to quit.

This is where the revelation and self-reflection come in. I have found I have a bit a phobia in new situations. I had driven 30 minutes out there and walked up to the door and it was locked. As I sat in my car waiting for them to open the door I was ready to run.... The new place and being out of place was so crazy scary to me. I wish I had something insightful to add here, but I think it was an interesting reaction.

    The first time I went to pilates I had the same reaction. Wasn't sure how I'd do in a group setting. I sat outside until the class started and snuck in the back. When I was done I loved it and was wondering what I was so anxious about.

    I hear ya, I don't do well in new situations. My anxiety goes off the charts! I just have to take a calm breath and smile. "fake it til you make it" is my motto. I will pretend I'm the most confident person in the world and just act like it. I spend so much time trying to be all awesome, I forget about my anxiety completely.

    I have had similar reactions to situations that are new to me also--which is strange because I'm not a shy person.
