This year, so far, is the most unique time in which I've lived. I have written before about how we are collectively feeling and experiencing similar things. We have had to endure being stuck at home. We are seeing social unrest as we have not seen in this country in many years. We're all in the same ocean, some of us are just in different boats.
Now is a great time to explore your walls. Walls are useful for protecting us and keeping some things out. They can also prevent us from growing. We all have walls, and now is a great time to explore which ones you can take down.
My walls are built with a thousand bricks of negativity:
"you're not good enough"
"you don't know how"
"everyone else is better than you"
"you won't finish"
Sound familiar? All of those negative snippets (and more!) formed a ticker tape of negativity when I first started thinking about opening True Spirit. I knew I wanted to create a space where folks could develop their physical health and fitness AND a safe space where we can explore our mental, emotional and spiritual health and fitness.
Physical training helps me break down my walls. It helps me see my strengths. It helps me see my opportunities for growth. I love what I learn about myself during a Hero workout just as much as I love what I learn about myself during a max effort lift. I love how the lessons of physical training transfer to mental training.
True Spirit is a safe place where we can learn who we really are! I'm so glad you're here with me.
