So...today I decided even though it was my "rest day"....I have been resting for a week since the earthquake...actually the day before!! And since my crazy Monday has basically turned into ZERO clients (some have rebooked for tomorrow and later in the week), I might has well just go and get back to it. But the more normal I act the weirder I feel...like people will think I am heartless and cold because a 15 minute walk from my house people are dead, the city is in total destruction and bodies are being recovered...but...I decide...It will be good for my sleep, my butt, my hips, my goals, and maybe even inspire others who may feel like me to get back to their lives. I do believe that living your life to the fullest means you RESPECT the people who no longer have that choice.
So....I pull up at the gym and the parking lot is full. Maybe it's because people needed parking spaces from nearby businesses (that happens). But when I looked in the window...THEY WERE MEMBERS!!! The gym was busy and I was happy...I hate Mondays normally because it's so busy...but today it brought me total AHHHHHHH...
My boss there and owner and I spoke earlier in the day and switched some hours around and I asked about saturday...she has another employee who seems to be very sensitive to what has all happened and she was trying to be kind, gentle and tactful with me and she said, you let me know what you want to do. I know some people are more sensitive to this than others...and she openly admitted that she isn't overly sensitive and traumatized like so many...I quickly and happily said ...THAT'S HOW I AM! I think if you haven't lost everything and/or someone, you really don't have a reason to be traumatized! If you are, you should probably move TODAY! Yes, it shakes ya' up..and yes you mourn and cry for the news coverage on victims for several days and then...you have to dry your tears, get dressed, pick yourself up and make a plan...How will I live my life today!?
So...I had a good workout...however a week off NEVER feels great when you go back....UGH!
Have a great night and a fantastic week!!!
