For as long as I can remember – well mainly since becoming a Mom seven years ago, I’ve always been a quiet risk taker, someone who is super selective, thriving on schedule and routine. With a young child, and being a single mom this has been a great advantage and has made my life smoother and less complicated in many ways. But, I often see the downfalls in a life so predictable – I miss out on fun and being impulsive, I mean yes I’m a young mom but I am still 26, I still remember the rush of taking chances and just going with the flow.
I usually only chew gum when I’m going out for a night out (rare) or when I’m super nervous. I’ve spent so much time in the house the past year, that I swear I have no idea how to be social anymore! I’ve been slowly coming out of my shell and experiencing life in a less structured way, and much to my surprise I enjoy it! Me and the Green Apple Trident are a match made in heaven – green apple & pineapple are two of my favorite fruits, and packed into a piece of gum, nothing is more convenient! At a friend’s baby shower recently I was feeling all kinds of shy because I didn’t know anyone and she was off entertaining. I sulked for a bit, but then realized how silly I was being, popped some gum, and mustered up the confidence to go interact with other guests, thinking it would be like pulling teeth…but it wasn’t! I had a great time, I laughed, and I met a great new friend. All because I was willing to see what unfolds and try something new.
It took a lot for me to put myself out there, but I am glad I did. When was the last time you tried something new? I encourage you to watch this fun video is brought to you by great-tasting Trident Gum. Trident: See What Unfolds:
