Today, I took part in an activity that I do particularly badly. I bowled. The good news is that this was a fund raiser my husband’s company was participating in for a worthwhile charity – Big Brothers and Big Sisters. As David was on crutches (yet again) for a broken toe, I “bowled in”. Despite my poor skills, I had a really great time. There’s something freeing about setting low expectations and just enjoying yourself. I enjoyed being part of a team, if only for a couple of hours, and having the freedom to fail (or do well). Maybe that’s a good attitude to take into any endeavor – just show up and do your best, and don’t worry if you throw the occasional gutter ball. In fact, that’s the perfect opening for a good laugh. Believe me, I laughed a lot today.
