Twice this week I have attended fitness sessions without the appropriate equipment. First, I forgot runners for my training session with @liznacc on Monday, then tonight my yoga equipment was in the car that my husband took when he went out. In both cases, my knee jerk reaction was “oh no! I guess I can’t go!” but my family’s support kept me going - as my brother texted me tonight the only thing to do is show up, show up, show up.
These classes are helping me as Dave’s surgery looms ever closer to manage my mental health and stress. They help me sleep, and smile, and stand upright. So, on Monday, I needed to get my daughter runners anyway, as she has now grown to the same shoe size as me, so I stopped and bought her some runners... which I wore for my session. Tonight, I could have skipped yoga, but I have been looking forward to this all day, and I had seen the signs at @oxygenmapleridge that I could rent a mat for a class. I made my class. Keana rented me a mat, and Sonja guided me through a much needed deep stretch and relaxation.
It is easier to stay home when I am scatterbrained, but I would regret it. I need this in my life, especially right now, and so I am glad that there is always a way, if I just show up, show up, show up.
