In baseball, when a team is struggling it’s not uncommon for the manager to bring in a new coach. And typically, the new coach will go back to basics and focus on the fundamentals. Why? Because a good coach knows the value of laying a proper foundation.
I have been challenged to acknowledge five things about myself that I am proud of, things I would brag about with regards to myself and my accomplishments. At the moment this was first asked of me, I couldn’t do it, but today is a new day. And I’m in the mood to have a little fun.
So first things first…what do I like about myself? What do I want to brag about? Well, being that I can be all about appearances and putting up a good front, let’s start with the superficial. I have great legs. I mean really great legs. It’s my favorite feature. I’m proud of them, and I work out regularly to keep them in shape.
But I’m afraid to tell you that. It seems so self-absorbed and conceited. So Brittany Spears. Hey everyone, look at my great legs. So I don’t show them off, preferring to play it safe and follow the rules of society. The rules that say moms who are over 40 should not look hot and sexy. Well today I’m breaking those rules. Even if only for a day.
Because I think that maybe I need to go back to basics and focus on the fundamentals. It’s time to go back to the days when I wasn’t self-conscious and overly preoccupied with what people thought of me. (I mean we are talking a long time ago…think diapers). But if I can rebuild my foundation, one based on self-love and self-acceptance, who knows…maybe I can win a World Series one day.
And yep…these are my legs….pretty sexy, huh?
