Perfect Moment Monday is about noticing a perfect moment rather than creating one. Perfect moments can be momentous or ordinary or somewhere in between.
Please visit the links of the participants at the bottom.
Here’s a perfect moment from my week. I hope you’ll share yours, too.
Y’all know about my passions. My family, yoga, blogging, and exploring the complexities of open adoption. A few months ago, I fell into a new one.
I was late one Saturday morning to a class at the gym so I decided to take the next one. It had always looked waaaaay too far above my athletic abilities, both in endurance and in coordination.
Did I mention I hadn’t been in an aerobic-type class in more than a decade? That I really hate to sweat? That I always assume others are better than I am and will laugh at me?
No matter. I went in. And LOVED IT! I had never ever thrown a punch before. Now I knew four different kinds. Plus four different kinds of kicks, to boot (haha). A dozen classes later, I still don’t look as boxing-ring-ready as the instructor does, but my form is slowly getting better.
I feel my body changing. I’m stronger in my core. I can give more longer. And it just feels good. I feel powerful.
Who woulda guessed that jab + cross + hook + uppercut = perfect moment?
