What is life without a little inspiration now and again? Hopefully, occasionally I'll say something to someone that may inspire them . . . And, I look for inspiration anywhere and everywhere . . .
So, yesterday, at the gym, I was planning to do cardio, abs, and arms . . . I not only did that, but was on the receiving end of some serious inspiration . . .
Case one . . . A young man I've known for a few years is opening his own fitness facility next week, and he has a terrific, optimistic outlook on life . . . I love that! I hope he's wildly successful . . . He's planning to offer a wide range of options for clients . . . He knows I meditate, and have taught meditation to individuals and groups . . . It seems, he wants to offer meditation, and asked if I'd do it . . . I might, or might not . . . I spend so much time out of town that really, it might not work . . . But the point is, this young man will do VERY well . . .
Case two . . . One of my gym buds is in his early thirties, and looks the picture of health . . . It's been tough for him . . . He injured his back badly a decade ago, and has had surgery . . . After the injury, because of the pain, he drank heavily and went crazy with prescription pain killers . . . He became addicted to alcohol and drugs . . . He's long since over that, but there's more . . . He has two daughters with his ex-wife . . . Now he's dealing with a condition that might be MS, or something else . . . This man has such a positive outlook, it's incredible . . . He said, I want to inspire people, I want to be there for my daughters when they graduate, and walk them down the isle . . . When he tells me what's happening (he spent significant time in the hospital last weekend), he isn't complaining . . .
Case three . . . Someone I occasionally spot for, and another gym bud, won in his category at a national bodybuilding competition last weekend . . . Atta boy Steve!!
So yes, without question, life is beautiful baby!
Peace and love . . .
