One of the best gifts I ever received was hope. I had reached a very dark place in my life and was very dissatisfied with myself to put it mildly. After having 3 children, I was not in the best of shape. This led me to turning down the lights at night before any intimate time could be achieved. I considered myself to be too ugly to be beholden in the daylight.
As I look back over this, I know part of it was foolish. My husband didn’t really care how I looked and always made me feel beautiful. I, too, should not have been so focused on my body, but I was. I was the source of my own insecurity. I knew something had to change.
I began to take baby steps. After several attempts at various workouts, I stumbled upon the Tracy Anderson Method. Her method was fresh, innovative and unique. I tried it and enjoyed it. And it wasn’t just the workout that I enjoyed. I enjoyed her. I enjoyed the fact that she told me I could do it. She told me I could change. She told me to stick with it.
And I believed her. She made me believe I could do it. She gave me hope. Hope was exactly what I needed. I needed it more than I needed the workout regime. It was an intangible gift that grew and translated into tangible long lasting, ever fruitful results. Hope was my spring. It was my new beginning.
Now I fervently believe in giving hope. I love to give hope to others through the mechanism of physical fitness. I want people to believe that they can go from being weak to being strong. And they can. Many people do not realize that being healthy and strong translates to every aspect of their lives. Because of hope I began to workout, which then led me to being more bold in the bedroom and to being more bold in general. I now feel good in my body, good in my mind, and good in my spirit. It isn’t about a perfect body, it is about strength and confidence. I believe hope is a conduit for change.
With all my heart,
