Happy start to a new week

Monday, February 11, 2013

I knew today was going to be an extremely busy day. My walking partner today canceled on me, so I was a little sad. So during my off hour I started off going to just walk around by myself and not let it get me down. Well, as I began my walking I was asked if this was my off hour and would I please consider teaching the physical education class. The teacher for that wasn't there (in hospital). The lady that asked me was off but in much better shape than me. I realized the negative part of me was thinking that, I did not belong in a gym teaching kids when I'm not a physically good role model myself. So what came to mind shortly after that thought, but spark people/coach and a very sweet comment from Pixie-licious.

I choose today to be stronger than my own harshness toward myself and taught the class. I rewarded in many ways just by say yes. I got in a much better workout than walking. I even attempt to jogging a bit. I was able to help children learn about basketball and encourage them. I was able to get in a great workout. I silenced the critic that I am against myself and come out smiling.

    And maybe you taught something in the class, -- that we all have to try, and even if we are not there yet, we improve ourselves as we can. You were a role model by not being perfect, but by being willing, encouraging, and encouraged.
