" Only when we are no longer afraid do we begin to live." Dorothy Thompson
I am no longer afraid to go to the gym. I am no longer worried what others will think of me . I don't care what they think or how they will react. I don't care if they stare ,or look away.
All I know is after a hard day all I think about is the solace of the gym. How I can make my muscles move and the happy feeling I get after. I only care that I am getting healthier and maybe a little leaner and more toned also.
I don't care anymore if supper is late or someone has to reschedule an appointment. I don't care if the house needs to be cleaned , or if my family misses me.
I am no longer afraid to go the gym. I am unafraid to move and smile and have some fun. Just me and my favorite tunes and a little alone time a hour or so at the gym and I am happy.
I am unafraid to walk the dog around the neighborhood. Don't care what others think or how they will react . All I know is I love the sun on my face and wind in my hair . I love to get caught in thunderstorms and poured on. I turn my face to the clouds and laugh blissfully . Why because I am no longer afraid.
I love who I am I accept how I look . I know deep down inside that God made me special . That I am here to shine not to hide and live half a life.
Here's to you my friends ,that special being that you are. Here's to being happy , to loving ourselves , here's to being unafraid. No one is more important than us . No one is better . No more hiding for us just living a whole happy life.
