What do I do when I’m nervous?
Well apparently I like to do things that make me feel vulnerable. The week leading up to a kettlebell sport competition is always a bit rocky. My stomach is in knots, I am terrified that I won’t make weight, I look at the ranking chart and figure out how many reps I would need to do at the higher weight class in order to still make my goals on the platform, I analyze whether or not that is possible and back to stomach upsets.
In the past during this time I have snapped a people or taken it out on others. I am committed to not doing that this time. I have surrounded myself with the best support system possible, I am trained and more ready than ever to attack my CMS ranking, as of Monday morning I was only 1 pound over my weight class and I am eating lots of veggies and will be doing a little steam room time. It will be fine.
So instead of blogging and obsessing over my competition, which will be FINE, I am going to get vulnerable.
I have been being mysterious for some months about a project that I am working on that is very close to my heart. The video shared here is a teaser for a feature film that I am producing which will cover the interpersonal and social challenges faced by people who are dealing with invisible illnesses like fibromyalgia. We will share a few different stories of people with different conditions that fall under the invisible illness category.
I will need to raise quite a bit of money to get this film made and I may be asking for your help. For now, please take 5 minutes to watch this teaser, share it with your contacts and reach out to me directly if you can help in some way. Actual fundraising won’t begin until September.
Thank you for watching, sharing and supporting…I would not be where I am now without my incredible community.
