It’s early Monday morning and I would normally be on the road to the gym ready to start my day of training. But instead I find myself here contemplating all of this. It’s been a roller coaster of a year for anyone in the fitness industry. I know in my heart that what I promote and do is for the greater good when it comes to the population's health. But here I once again find myself shut down until further notice.
I’ve been through all of the emotions over this new shut down. I’ve seen all the angry posts and media around the situation. But I sit here with a deeper knowledge. I have to go within and listen to my instinct. I understand this all doesn't make sense and I should be angry. This past year has been a deeply transformative year for me. My reactions and feelings about situations seem much different.
So here I am ready to face these next 4 weeks and beyond with an open mind and open heart. I choose to look for the good. I choose to go within for the answers. I embrace more time to journal and meditate. I wonder if this time may open me up to a deeper knowledge of how I can help more profoundly when it’s time to come back.
“A sacrifice to be real must cost, must hurt, must empty ourselves. The fruit of the silence is prayer, the fruit of prayer is faith, the fruit of faith is love, the fruit of love is service, the fruit of service is peace.” ~ Mother Teresa
