Finish This… Week #21 (Number 2 for me)

Happy Hump Day! I am back this week with another Finish This…

If you are just tuning in, I recently “linked up” with other bloggers by participating in a blogging game called Finish This. The game is an opportunity for bloggers to link up and share a bit about themselves. If you are reading this, consider joining in! If you do not have a blog, simply comment below and β€œfinish” the sentences that I have finished below. For more information, click the image below!

The best mistake I ever made …
was retiring from softball. It was a very hard transition and I miss the game… A LOT. However, SO many opportunities came about from this decision. It may have been a mistake at first, but in the end, it was one of the best mistakes I ever made. πŸ˜‰

Throwback to college softball days!

From thisΒ mistake, I learned …
that other’s opinions about decisions you made may not be the opinions to focus on. Many people disagreed with my decision to quit and did not make me feel too great about it. They made me feel guilty and made it clear they thought that I made the wrong decision. Others supported my decision. I focused on the negative opinions at first, which ended up hurting me a lot. After a while, I realized that it was my life and my decision. I was (still am) proud of that decision.

When I’m anxious, I tell myself …
I think that you may expect something positive here. Unfortunately, if I am anxious, I let it get to my head. I blow things out of proportion and become a worrier. I am learning to control it with breathing techniques. Typically I will tell myself to hit the gym and put all my thoughts out the door. Once I cross the gym doors, I focus 100% on my workout. It is very helpful.

All I really want to do is …
plan events, cook awesome meals, raise an amazing family with the man of my dreams, and live a peaceful, fulfilling life. Is that too much to ask? πŸ˜›

Now it is your turn! Comment below and finish these sentences or join the fun! Link up by clicking the Finish This image above and follow instructions. I would love to hear your responses. Join in next week if you are tuning in after Wednesday. Finish the prompts below!

    1. I completely agree! That is a great way to look at things. I am happy that I chose to disregard the opinions (the negative ones at least). Thank you for commenting!

  1. Girl, I feel you on leaving a sport you’ve played for many years. I played competitive junior golf for MANY years, including college, and simply got burnt out. I also had a very negative, tragic experience at a tournament involving a dishonest coach and him wanting me to change my scorecard so we’d win a tournament. I wasn’t willing to do so and three months later my full-ride scholarship, suddenly without notice, was not renewed for the next academic year. It was disheartening but it was a HUGE SIGN that I needed to take a break and get out of the situation. And, luckily, golf is the kind of game I can pick back up in life. I’ve not played much since my late teens, early 20s, but every once in a while I’ll pick up a club and sincerely miss the game. I don’t necessarily miss the competition, but I definitely miss the genuine sport of golf. CHIN UP BUTTERCUP, a fulfilling life with people who love and good food is never too much to ask for. πŸ™‚

    Thanks for joining the link up, I hope you are enjoying this as much as I am!
    xo,

    1. Oh my gosh! That is unbelievable. I would have been against cheating as well. Thank you for sharing that experience with me. Golf is the kind of game you can pick back up in life, which is wonderful. I agree I do not miss the competition, but the game is great.

      Who can resist good food πŸ˜‰ Not me! Lol. I am very excited to join the link up! I LOVE it! Thank you for the great idea! I look forward to reading more of your posts.

      ❀ Kristin
