Yesterday, I made the declaration that this was going to be an awesome week. That’s it. I just declared it to be so.
Today, I woke up feeling good, though I stayed in bed longer than I should have because Toby was being a brat (again). But as this is going to be an awesome week, I got up, got my pre-gym yogurt and coffee and got moving. Then I tried an experiment.
Walking into the gym, I allowed myself to be in complete joy, letting it radiate out from me in all directions. First of all, I felt great, and walked upright, exhibiting complete confidence, regardless of unflattering (but comfy!) gym wear and a body which, by gym rat standards, is far from perfect. But for me, it is the perfect body and, like everything else in my life, is simply a work in process as I embrace my Divinity while having a Human Experience.
I also noticed that a lot of people made eye contact and smiled (something which never happened before because I go to the gym and stay in my own space, mentally, physically and energetically). I also noticed that there were a few double takes which I took to be from people who were more sensitive energetically and must have been seeing how my energetic self was radiating.
But even more interesting was the fact that, aside from one mishap when I used the wrong muscles and cramped up my trapezius muscles for a few seconds, I felt like I was in complete accord with my body and that I had the best workout I’d ever had! (I must have, as my shirt was soaked in places it usually doesn’t get sweaty!).
The moral of this story is, for a great workout, go in with an attitude of gratitude and joy, radiating confidence and loving your body, no matter what shape it’s in!
My gratitudes tonight are:
1. I am grateful for new discoveries.
2. I am grateful for a joyous attitude.
3. I am grateful to be fitting into smaller clothes.
4. I am grateful to be feeling simply splendid, and to be able to share it with anyone I come into contact with.
5. I am grateful to be returning to my gym routine which was put on hold while I was busy hacking up a lung and snorting out gallons of bodily fluids.
Love and light.
