Yesterday I was so inspired by a woman who came to my Zumba Gold class for the 1st time. She let me know she had never taken Zumba. She was just diagnosed with Parkinson’s and has just started boxing and wants to add Gold to her schedule. She had a choice when she received her diagnosis, and she is choosing to live life, try new things and become stronger mind and body. I want to follow in her lead, I hope her story motivates you as well. Get out there and do what you can.
It’s Monday! New week, new goals, new mindset. Celebrate what your body can do, find the workout that speaks to your soul. Try something new, meditate on the positive, be your best you.
When we are surrounded by sadness and don’t know how to make a difference, start with one small, kind act. Be a light in darkness.
In times when it feels like the world is hurting so much and we don’t know what to do to help, we can make a difference just by being kind. Many of us wish we could be in the areas of people suffering and making a hands on difference, or that we could donate more money than the little our budgets may allow. What we can do is make life better in the people’s lives we encounter everyday. Be kind, lend a hand, build each other up. That is how we help spirits grow, strengthen souls and be part of the rebuilding.
I captured this picture of my son Andy on our drive home camping in Mt. Lemmon, we pulled off at a Vista Point and he climbed this beautiful rock formation. It made me think of a positivity band I wear, given to me my a friend I really admire, Let Your Light Shine. Despite the fog surrounding us, my son used his strength to see vast view below us from a different perspective. Always be you, Always let your light shine.
