The biggest fundraiser of the year is in December and I was invited to be a table captain for the Reach New Heights Charity Dinner & Silent Auction... which means I sell the plates at my table at $50 a pop. Not a bad price for an elegant winter evening with dinner, silent auction, dancing, and entertainment. It's just so nerve-wracking for me to ask businesses and people for donations. And I have to do just that every year for our small community school. But after I was invited, I saw this picture on facebook and it gave me butterflies in my tummy. That's when I knew I had to do it. I can do it. I will do it. And I will do it well. I will rise to the challenge.
What things have you done lately that scare you? Did you rise to the challenge?
In fitness and nutrition, today was a stellar day (and even topped off with Stellar Organics red wine-- divine). I reached 8.7 miles total, 3 of which I ran in preparation for an upcoming 5K. I think I'm progressing well. Time will tell. I also enjoyed baked chicken, roasted asparagus & garlic, and brown rice. And that was just my fabulous dinner the husband made for us.
Finding joy in all of my days. Today was especially joyous.
