Lost and Found through Vulnerability
I've been going through some transformations lately. Largely about fitness, which I've kept you abreast about periodically. Today, on my Facebook page, I found myself spontaneously making lots of posts about fitness ... to try and get my friends to understand the many valuable lessons I've learned about fitness this past year. What I've learned has helped me so much. In many ways, I've found myself again through fitness.
Simultaneous to finding myself, there have been some personal issues intermixed with fitness where I completely lost myself. Total fog. Total off-balance. Totally unlike me. Came to me as a complete surprise. I allude to it here.
During this time in my life, when I found myself drowning, I knew only one thing to do, which was to be completely honest and completely vulnerable with those involved. To open my heart and reveal what was in it ... to ask for help so that I could regain my strength.
My road back to OK is one I'll travel for a while but what I've learned so far is something that I think has parallels to fitness ... which is that when you've let yourself go physically for whatever reason, it's best to be completely vulnerable and ask for help. Take down the pride. Face the weight you've allowed yourself to become. Look honestly in the mirror and make a decision to take action. You'll be surprised to find that there are people who will honor your vulnerability and become your "sponsor" of sorts or your "underwriter" of sorts or your cheerleader of sorts. There will also be those who support you in ways that matter so much, but don't take center stage.
Thanks for letting me check in about all of this. I'm good. And I hope you'll allow this blog to evolve a little bit where I give more focus on the topic of fitness. It has always been a core value of mine but it's a little bit different now. It is now a passion.
And let me tell you, there isn't a single person I've met or will meet who doesn't want to find the road to fitness. I wanna have this blog be a place where we can talk about it a bit more.
Thank you for allowing me to evolve. And thank you for allowing me to allude to my personal challenges without indulging neither writer nor reader with the details.
