spt - the recap
i want a redo!!
i want to rewrite my post, and i want to be able to say all the honest and open things that you have all shared in this week's challenge!!
i've mentioned it before, but i must repeat that the spt challenge gives me so much more than i ever expected. more perspective. more enlightenment. more laughter. and this week, more sniffles....
the challenge... do you PLAY well with others? the response...
let's PLAY a game!
(can you guess the blogger before you click on the link???)
I love playing with others-it takes awhile for me to warm up and get past my insecurities of myself, but eventually you'll see how much I love to be around others and laugh-oh how I love to laugh-and how they bring out the best in me. :)
Do I play well with others???? I guess so. I'm always up for something fun!!
Grown up, I do like to play & be social. I like to host parties here. I like to lunch with a friend & do catch up. I like to be in a fun setting of cool women working on quilts, etc. for humanitarian efforts, I like to go on a strenuous walk with a friend, I like to stroll the boutique shops with a friend. This is all PLAYTIME to me.
This weeks challenge has truly CHALLENGED me! As my mind has been spinning over this, I've come to realize I need to pull myself away from the kids play and step into my own!
In high school, everyone thought I was a snob. I don't think I've ever been a snob, I'm just shy, dang it!
Much of the joy from my childhood comes from the fact that I played. I really played.
Playing is any activity where I'm having a good time and am surrounded by people I enjoy.
all PLAYing aside, there were some posts that really brought a lot of emotions to the surface for me this week. tissue in hand, i urge you to check out amy m, carlo, kristi, jenny, hannah, annalisa and stefanie. these women are not afraid to tell you how they really feel! i would go on a PLAYdate with any of you!!
don't forget to check out some new image consultants on my sidebar this week, because people are PLAYing all over the www: michelle m and lucy and tiffanie, i'm so glad you've come out to PLAY.
**if anyone is out there who is doing spt, and would liked to be linked, please let me know. i stumble across spt posts from time to time, but worry that i shouldn't link without your permission.**
