I do love to spend a few minutes (30 max!) with Jillian Michaels. I get to sweat, she gets to make me laugh, and my body gets the benefit.
Sometimes I just say stupid stuff too quickly. And in the moments following those times, I want to kick myself. I don’t think I’m alone in this but I was raised in a home where saying sorry wasn’t done. It wasn’t modeled for me or my siblings. I was in college before I learned how to apologize and like most women have sometimes strayed into the territory of apologizing too much. But now and then, an apology is exactly what needs to happen to lift your burden and ensure that things are set straight. I did that tonight and I did it publicly. It is not easy but it is right.
Had a conversation with a sweet friend that I haven’t talked to in a long time. He reminded me of a conversation a few years ago and encouraged me to continue to believe in the best for myself and never settle for less.
