“You’re stronger than you think!" That’s what Shay said to me, over the booming gym music, as he helped me lift two 15-pound weights while I was in an elevated bridge pose in his 5:15 p.m. Flex class. Shay was leaning over me, his face upside down. I gave him a breathy laugh and said, “No, I’m not!” I immediately hoped I had brushed my teeth before class because I just breathed in his face. I also hoped I wasn’t carrying COVID or anything, but bad breath – that’s what came to mind first as I continued lifting those heavy to me weights.
You are stronger than you think. You took the first step and showed up for yourself. 😊
