One girl's journey into the world of Figure competition

The Low Down Dirties

I’ve been feeling kind of low lately.  Work has been dragging me down.  Long hours at the office and continued hours at home after work.  

Bottom line: I need to let go.

For the past three weeks I feel like I have been dragging a boulder around with me.  I have been schlumping around this city and my life like nothing good is going on.  While I know that’s not the truth, I haven’t been able to see anything but blah in my life.

Adding onto the craziness of work, I was told the other day that I will need to travel to India and then to Korea and then to Hong Kong in a few weeks.  Although I’m excited about the chance to reach those parts of the world, traveling to those places poses a whole other set of challenges as far as working out and eating is concerned.

But what is life without a little challenge and do I really want my only interest to be working out?  I’m more than this and more than only that.

My boyfriend told me to let all the bad energy go.  To not misunderstand opportunity in disguise.  To see the good things that are around me.  

I am a positive person at heart.

Today we decided to go to the gym.  I went to my gym, he went to his.  Before we left he said to me, “Christina: What have I told you before?  When you are in the gym, let it go.  Don’t focus on relationships, love, work, your boss, family, the city, the apartment.  All those things have positives and negatives.  Everything has two sides.  Focus on you.  Inside.  Let everything else go.”

And so I did.  I worked out in my gym.  There was hardly a soul there and so I could focus on my own.

By the time I got home, I figured I would do some grocery shopping and found someone had put a little something extra on the bottom of my list:

I’m not crossing this one off because I am still shopping for it – everywhere.  I should always put some of it in my basket, but I should never have enough.

Stay focused and true.

    Christina,

    You are an excellent writer and communicator. Keep writing, about this and about other subjects.

    And keep looking for the Happiness. It is there for you and you richly deserve it…
