Suggested reading: How Roller Skating Gave Me a Huge Confidence Boost

For as long as I can remember, I've been a planner. Spontaneity has always sent me into a slight panic and usually gives me stress-induced headaches. I've been set in my ways for a very long time and it has ultimately been more harmful to me. Since I started skating, I've had the confidence to go out of my comfort zone more and more often-- plus I've been presented with quite a few opportunities that forced me out of my comfort zone.

Especially over the past month, I've had to do a few things that really made my palms sweat and my heart race. I agonized over the things I had to do, as I always do, but in the moment and afterward, I felt so calm and couldn't believe how anxious I had been. Just like with skating!

I really do feel better than ever. I feel more confident, more comfortable in my skin, and when things pop up, I'm okay with shifting gear. I've never felt like that before, and for the first time in a long time, I genuinely feel very hopeful that things are going to keep getting better.

And yes...I do indeed have an unfortunate sunburn. That's what happens when you're super pale and you sit on the beach for an hour in capri yoga pants. It actually happened the first weekend in May and all the aloe in the world can't seem to make it go away. I thought about editing it out, but you know what? This is what I currently look like and I just can't be bothered. I'm just goin' with it.
