“Where were you Thursday?” Some people obviously aren’t reading my schedule as closely as I thought!
I’ve talked about change and comfort zones before on this page. If you stay in your comfort zone, you start to become stagnant and tend to plateau. I began to feel uninspired and… Stagnant. I felt as though I was not giving my all to my classes. If you know me or have been in my classes more than once (or twice), you will know that feeling is very important to me. I thrive knowing that my students know that I care about them. However, lately I have been feeling like I have been in a season of change. I just wasn’t sure what type of change was needed.
Opportunities presented themselves where I was not only able to help out my gym, but challenge myself in the process. I began teaching a fun format to a group that was not expecting the change. “Nervous” was not even the word to use to appropriately explain how I felt. I wanted to run out of the gym, even though I arrived an hour early. Was it perfect? No. The next time I taught the format, it was ten times better!
Was this change the answer that I needed? I’m not sure.
You have to “Just Do It” to borrow the words from Nike. You have to tell yourself to get over yourself, otherwise there will never be a perfect time. As we say, “Someday I will ________.” <Insert your dream.> “Someday” is not a day on the calendar. You just have to do it. You have to jump out of your comfort zone and try something, do something to accomplish your dreams.
I’m still working on my success stories. I’m still achieving my dreams. I worked hard to obtain my certifications and not using them will not help me be a better me for you! I did not leave my class to do something better, I left to be a better me. I left to stretch myself and help others. I hope that you understand that and appreciate the difference.
I tell you always, “It’s You vs. You” and that goes for me as well. I will see you in the gym! My love to each of you!
