Perhaps not everyone is in the know about current events and I am envious of you! For real, I want to be you. Not creepy like wear you as an Edgar suit, but just switch lives a bit. All of this has me quite down. In a funk, something dark and musty. During these times I have been realizing how strongly I depend on my week dose of Flirt classes to help restore my faith in humanity and my ever waning sanity.
Could it be the 90 minutes of me time? The few precious moments I can retract from my daily duties and focus on me, my body and what I need. Could it be the meditations? Centering and calming my psyche. The physical strain? Pushing my body to the limits and then further. The mental engagement? Focusing purely on my body and those limits, forcing myself not to back down. The strength and accomplishment I feel when I accomplish a trick? Feeling as if I am in charge of something. Anything! Acting on the world and not having it act on me. The sisterhood? Group of shield maidens who would wage war to stop the negativity. Could it be the silence? The disconnecting from the outside, focusing solely on fitness, friends and bringing out my inner spirit animal.
I do not believe it is any of these things alone, in isolation. Truth is, nothing is really done for only one reason.
I am sure I am not alone when I say I NEED Flirt classes, sisters and engagement to help me get through these times. We live in a world that has so much dark and hate. Flirt has become my light. I have learned to appreciate these dark times. It is only during the bad; can we really appreciate the good. A huge shout out to Amy for giving us this place.
While writing this blog, I couldn’t help but think it sounds like a really cheese infomercial. Perhaps I can talk Amy into doing a PSA?
