I was just recently asked to introduce myself and share 3 Fun Things People Don’t Know About Me. I will be honest, I could barely think of one much less 3 in the heat of the moment.
Don’t believe me… Go ahead and try it. Ask someone without any forewarning to tell you 3 Fun Things You Didn’t Know About Them. What are your 3 Fun Things People Don’t Know About You?
In hindsight and way after the exercise, nine months later to be honest, I am now getting around to this post. You see, this blog has been my journal, an Athletic Diary so to speak. It has been a means to document and track my progress as an athlete. It has helped me learn and grow from my athletic endeavors, but I find that it reveals very little about my actual personality and who I am.
So without further ado, here are 3 Fun Things You Didn’t Know About Me and a peek into my personality and where I am coming from.
I’m Scared Of Heights
Yet, I love climbing whether it be ice climbing, rock climbing or jumping off shit.
I Love To Cook
So much so, that I did two years at WCI – Le Cordon Bleu College of Culinary Arts and worked with some of the best chefs in the country.
I Don’t Like To Exercise
Yes, you read that correctly. I do it because it challenges me and pushes me to be better than I was yesterday, and it teaches me a lot about myself for tomorrow. Many times I find that I am way stronger physically and mentally than I ever give myself credit for.
This exercise made me realize that whatever your 3 things are, whether they are fun facts, hardships, or accomplishments, they are what has made each of us into who we are today and influences our choices and decisions based solely on our own experiences.
I learned that by listening more, I was able to have a better understanding of why people do the things that they do. We all should be mindful not to be so quick to pass judgment or impose our expectations on others, simply because we do not know their story and where they are coming from or what they have overcome to be where they are today!
