Last week, I was inspired by a Nike video showing unabashed confidence women display in sports. As a little girl, both of my parents encouraged us to take risk and rarely applied gender roles. Mom was a “burn the bra” type and Dad gave us his full support. Rarely did I question my ability to at least TRY something new. At times there were quirky stares, inquiries to my hyper-focus to career, athletics and independence, but while it caused me to pause, it certainly didn’t stop me.

Today, my niece, Presley, affectionately known at “Pretzel” takes it steps further, without fear or hesitation. My brother and sister-in-law’s daughter without a doubt; fierce, athletic, wicked smart and sassy. She’s even playing football with full pads and helmet, without question. I’m convinced it’s simply good mid-west upbringing, a liberated household, awesome parenting and Pretzel’s own natural self.

Reminds us all to try and think beyond beliefs, preconceived ideas and prevailing opinions.

What will you try today???

    Yeah Pretzel! Not sure what I'm going to try today; but will do it with a "If you want to take the island, burn the boats" attitude.

    If it looks routine and safe....I'll go the other way.

    This weekend, I’m hiking in the mountains in Point Reyes— never done this kind of hiking and I’m all in!

    My 11 year old son inspires me often. As I get older it can get harder to keep up the "try harder". Seeing him in Little League doing things I never did or seemingly could keeps that spirit ingrained in my head. Now I am more focus on getting physically fit.
