You know what I get excited about my friends?

Getting out and doing the things that make me happy! Do you ever feel like something is missing in your life? You keep thinking about it and hope to find out what it is. If you’re like me, you either have a day job or you work full time being at home. Both are jobs that take our time.

I get it, I have lived it.

You do the daily thing day in and day out. You want to know what I did a year ago? I broke out of that mold. So I did the next best thing I started archery. How awesome is that right? It definitely has a cool factor. It’s very Katniss Everdeen of me.

Hey, The Hunger Games was a great movie! Here’s what you have to know about me first. All of my life I have been non-athletic for the most part. Okay so I ride a bike sometimes. That’s it.

Reasons for not diving right in. I thought I would be taking away from my family if I signed up for archery lessons. This came at a time where I had been going through some bumps in the road and honestly I was looking for something to do.

Have you ever felt that way? You need something to focus on so that it can take you away from the negative stuff? I was all about that and I needed it fast.

What I learned about waiting is: it’s boring!

I had hamster wheel syndrome. So back to archery. I finally found this rock star Christine Harrelson in Chapel Hill, NC. She was my saving grace! My first lesson was in 2 words:

life changing!
