Physical adoration has driven many of us away from our unique and true gifts. Some of us have become so obsessed with a fit body, or ashamed for not having one, that along with exercise, unnecessary suffering has also become part of our lifestyle.
It was a nice Monday morning. I was having a conversation with a client who I’d been training for a couple of months. It had been a year of self-discovery for me. My mind pondered about what gives us real purpose and what really mattered in life.
In the middle of our session, I said, “Susan, you know what I found out recently?”
She said, “What?”
“That the foundation of health is love, it is to feel truly connected with one another in compassion. Doesn’t it make a lot of sense?”
She looked at me and said, “Valeria, can you get the mat for my next glute workout?”
We continued with the session as if there were no comment made, and no questions asked.
