Fridays really are one of my ‘true grit’ days…..the day where i have to show true grit - i have to dig really deep to show up at dance class. I have to commit to a solid hour of craziness and hurt, for the sake of health – so how DOES that work again….if it hurts it’s healthy right?? It is just so worth it though, but DANG on days like this - fluffy, white, magical days, where the sky reminds me a soft white blanket that’s just come out of a delicates cycle…..it’s just meaner than spit to not be able to crawl back under one just like it, and quietly contemplate the weekend.
There is a silver lining, isn’t there always??…Pf YES!!? .... in reality my Monday evening and Friday morning classes have come to mean a lot to me, and it’s only the Fridays that I sometimes find a squeeze. They have come to symbolise some of the changes I have made in my life over the last year, and are a reminder to my heart, that I HAVE the resolve to commit to things, even though there are times when, in a crazy busy life, it would make things a whole lot easier and more comfortable, if they went ‘unnoticed’.
Change is growth, commitment is discipline, and anything in life that requires TRUE GRIT is shaping us into stronger, better people. It’s on the TRUE GRIT days that you need to really lean into that stitch in your side, and if you can, it’s such a liberating feeling, because those are the days where you really find the strength in you.
