I finally found it

So, today I came to a realization that has been a long time coming.  As many of you know, I’ve really struggled with finding a group of like-minded people to push me physically since I moved back to SC.  I had that in New Jersey and have REALLY missed it.  I think I missed it more than I wanted to admit and packed on a few pounds with emotional eating.  Yesterday I was driving down a less than beautiful street with run down houses and yards and I looked over and saw a very ugly tree (all its branches had been cut off and it was virtually a very tall stick), but it had the most beautiful circle of huge red flowers around it.  I mean, I had to do a double take.  They were so beautiful.  And in that moment (while rushing to one of my many many meetings) I realized you can find beauty anywhere.  And usually when you least expect it.  You just have to be open to it.  So, with my new state of mind, something hit me like a ton of bricks today.  I finally found my people!!!  I found it somewhere I least expected. It’s not a running group, or a mom’s group.  It’s a gym.  It’s unconventional.  There are no treadmills, ellipticals, or machines.  What is there, is a great group of people who show up at 5 am, ready to bring it, awesome trainers ready to push you, and a whole lotta sweat slinging going on.  I’m so glad I finally found it.  It’s somewhere I least expected and it’s beautiful.
