I often get asked the question of motivation....what motivates me? It's a crazy good life and when you think you are not looking for the answers, that's when the answers find you. I love what I do. I love that I do, what I do, with the love of my life, my husband Mark.
I remember watching an interview with Cher....she called her fame an "accident"..... I could only interpret that as her way of describing the fact that she would have done everything she did regardless of getting any attention, money or fame as a result....she was only being true to herself.
I don't know why I do what I do, only that it feels good, it feels right and I couldn't do it any other way. I have the vision.
The vision is that of rising above and rising to the occasion. Not rising above anyone or anything else, but that of rising above my own feelings of insecruity, inabilitiy and maybe invalidity. Those kind of feelings suck, and I refuse to buy into them anymore. Rising to the occasion to do the things I know my body needs to live life to it's fullest, to be my true self.
Destiny. "F" destiny. Nothing is carved in stone. Life can change in a moment. Many times life does change in a moment. There are alot of things we cannot control, but we can control how we feel.
Feelings can change.....smile.....did you feel that? Seriously, smile! Can you feel that?
I have the vision. The vision is that of weightlessness. The "feeling" is light. Being "light" with myself, feeling "light" in my body. Being in control of a 26lb weight, flinging it through the air.....my body just along for the ride.....and what a ride!
I'm reminded of a wealthy client/student....someone that hires me to teach them how to swing....it's just someone looking to feel better, money or no money, fame or no fame....inside we are all the same. Money, fame, doesn't guarantee ease. Money, and/or fame doesn't guarantee feeling good about yourself, it doesn't guarantee feeling "light". Many times it's who we perceive as more fortunate that complain the most.
I'll keep showing up for the next workout, whether it's at 6:00 am , or 6:00pm (yikes I may be leading a class through high volume swings at 6:00pm in Hungary!). It's what I do, it's who I am. Who are you? What's your vision? What's your dream? What's stopping you?
See it, do it, be it.
