Dear Old Me,
Sometimes I wonder if how I am feeling about becoming Zumba certified and pursuing fitness and health as a potential career is typical for someone who has experienced a large weight loss. To be clear Zumba is just the first step in something I want to make a full time occupation. I am just so high on life and how good it feels to be active and social. I see that I inspire people and in turn they inspire me. I want that feeling in every interaction I have if possible.
I know to anyone who loses a lot of weight it feels liberating. I have heard a million times that it can change your life. Is this what they were talking about? Does everyone think they can become fitness instructors or is it just me? I truly feel so passionate about it and I want to do BIG things. In fact I have never felt so passionately about something in my life. Every time I think about it I get choked up and tears sting my eyes. I get downright emotional. I didn’t have this passion when I first started losing weight. Once I admitted that I actually wanted to become certified I felt extremely happy and content.
On the way into work this morning it dawned on me that I could really feel like this every day. I could love what I do and spend my days doing something that makes me happy. But am I just wacky off the endorphins and it’s all just my Zumba-high talking? After all this is the first time I have ever really worked out like this and been so consistent. I don’t really know if this euphoric state I find myself in all the time is temporary. Could it last? Would people listen to what I have to say? For now I am not going to question it. I am just going to let it happen. Well, to be more exact, I am going to MAKE it happen.
First things first, double Zumba. And did I mention that on May 6th you will officially be a Zumba instructor? Well believe it, because like I said, I am going to MAKE it happen.
Until Next Time,
The New You
