In The Joy Diet, Martha Beck suggests that we do something every day that scares the pants off of us. Well, I’m still wearing my pants, but I’ve done one of those things that may come back to haunt me.
A few months ago I was contacted by the publishers of AOL’s That’s Fit group asking me if I’d like to be featured on their Blogging Down series. I took a look at it, saw some familiar faces, and figured, what the heck? I completed their interview request, sent it on its way, and promptly forgot about it until yesterday when I learned “my” story would be going up today. Good news, right?
We’ll see about that. I took a few minutes last night to read some more of the other bloggers’ stories and that when I noticed for the first time that there were comments. Lots of comments. Lots and LOTS on some stories and many of them unkind. I’m not looking forward to this quite as much as I thought I would, but I suspect I will survive. My fragile days are over. I think. I’m just hopeful that the story inspires even one person to move his or her fitness program forward.
