I decided this year that I was going to be more “social” or do things that I normally wouldn’t do just to “experience” things.
My Centre Manager organised a Family Cricket Event to raise funds for a Breast Cancer Charity. If you know me well, I try to avoid going to work functions because— why would you want to spend a weekend with the people you see five days a week, right?
My workmate who had all these resolutions at the start of the year, took her time in providing an answer, and she was trying to make excuses not to go.
I said to her, ‘ We said we would do new things for 2018, I’ll go without you if you decide not to come, I just want to get out of the house and do something I wouldn’t do’
And so we did.
I don’t know whether she was lying to me that she thoughtthe day was ok. She probably thought it was boring and just agreed with me to shut up.
It was something I wouldn’t normally do, attending an event amongst people I know of but don’t know personally. I ended up even participating in playing a game (cricket of all things! )
It was 30 degrees in the day time, I was out in the sun doing physical activity. Something I haven’t done since 2005. It made me realise that I really do need to work on my fitness and to try do more stuff like this.
I think I will have to add on a page on this blog of what ‘new’ things I have done for the year.
Until next time.
