Is working out really about working out? I think I knew the answer a long time ago, but this summer I discovered once and for all – it is not. It is about living a healthy and happy life, challenging yourself, being the most productive version of yourself, making new friends and spreading good vibes (yes, it’s a thing).
When at the end of Atlas Corps orientation three weeks ago to the question “What will you bring to the fellowship?” I answered “courage to step out of my comfort zone”, I wasn’t kidding. And, as for any introvert, it takes a lot of courage to do networking, find new friends, go to a bunch of events – basically, to do the Fellowship in general. Yes, jumping from airplanes was easier than attending a networking event for me. And, certainly more pleasant.
