This post was started back in the summer. And I just found it again to finish!
As I was laying out on the boat last weekend attempting to take a nap I did some thinking. And I came up with this blog post. Yeah I know the title probs has you wondering what in the world I am going to write about. I hope promise it will be good.
So we all have those crazy nicknames from growing up. And well one of mine just so happens to be Moose. Long story short some teacher called me Mooseby in class one day (this was 3 months into class btw) and I told a camp friend the story. Of course she found it hysterical and then continued to call me that. Eventually it got shortened to Moose.
Not many people in my life call me Moose anymore. Just those special few from camp. And when I do here that name, I am always filled with great memories. I have always felt like I needed to live up to this crazy nickname. I mean come on who is called Moose and is normal?
To explain how I have come to embrace my Inner Moose I am going to use an acronym.
M is for motivated. I have an inner motivation that pushes me to succeed and go further with life. I desire to be the best Mosby I can be. I work hard to get where I go. And I love every minute of it.
E is for encourage. I love encouraging people. You ask my opinion and I will give it and then encourage you to go after something. I want to see people around me succeed. I want to help them get there. I love being there for those most important to me.
Do I live up to my nickname Moose everyday? No. But I try. And if at the end of the day someone remembers or thinks of me in one of these ways then I will consider my job well done.
