What You Waiting For?

Last night I was bored and decided to import some of my old CDs into my Nano music library while I watched Law and Order SVU (perfect Sunday!)


This morning when I was training my client in the studio, “What You Waiting For” from Gwen Stefani came on my Nano, and I told her how that was the first song that I ever ran to. I remember walking on the beach near my old apartment and mentally stopping myself from running, even though that is all I wanted to do. I remember all the thoughts that ran through my head “what if people are looking? What if I look stupid?” and then this song came on and I thought “What AM I waiting for?” and started to run. I never felt so free like I did at that exact moment.

If it wasn’t for me breaking through those negative thoughts in my head, I would not be where I am today. I am not going to lie and say that these thoughts still don’t creep into my head but I have learned to “shush” them and get on with my life.

I have this client who is always so hard on herself and gets so frustrated during our sessions. She decided a few months ago to try her first half marathon which I was so happy to hear. The months (and weeks) leading up to her big day, she doubted herself. I reassured her that she WOULD finish but I honestly didn't think she believed me or in herself. Yesterday was her big day and I was so worried that she would get in her own head but then I received the best text message from her “I FINISHED!!!!!!!!”

We will always find something that challenges us but those challenges are what make us stronger…don’t shy way from them. Instead tackle them down and find yourself on the other side…
