Getting Deep

Reading posts in the #21DaystoFitwithAlyssa challenge group today... it's got me thinking HARD. We don't ONLY focus on fitness in these groups. Sometimes, we GO DEEP. ๐ŸŒŠ We explore. We open up. We learn things about ourselves & share things that we might've otherwise kept LOCKED UP tight. ๐Ÿ”’ But there is such FREEDOM in the sharing. And the connections we make here. The acceptance. The VULNERABILITY. THIS is the stuff I crave now. REAL. RAW. AUTHENTIC. Because, what is life if you NEVER REALLY know who the people are that you are living it with??? ๐Ÿ™…๐Ÿผ You NEVER EVER EVER know what kind of story people are living. ๐Ÿ™…๐Ÿผ You NEVER know what battles people are fighting. I'm so HONORED to be surrounded by such AMAZING & BRAVE individuals. FREAKING HONORED. ๐Ÿ˜Œ I cannot tell you guys how HUMBLED I am to be in a group for 21 Days with people like THIS. Honestly... I'll always be forever GRATEFUL for the stories that get shared each month & for the loving "arms" of those in the group, accepting & encouraging the others. We are here to lift each other up. Not just in fitness, but in LIFE. ๐Ÿ˜ And, folks, I am SO DAMN GRATEFUL for these people that allow each of us (including ME!!) to be *human.* "What we don't need in the midst of struggle is shame for BEING HUMAN." -Brene Brown What we do need is LOVE. โค๏ธ #madeforbrave #prolove
