No not change back for your dollar….Change in LIFE. Change comes in many different ways, shapes, and forms.  Some changes are good and some are bad. I recently met someone and I will not say her name but she is having a huge life change right now. I have known her for about 5 weeks and we workout together up at CFLA where I intern. She is going through a divorce and her husband is leaving her. I did not know this at the time. After our workout I went up to her and asker her if everything was ok and she said no. She said, “my marriage is over and I dont know what to do?” Her eyes began to tear up and the only thing I could do was offer her a hug and she accepted. She stood up and I put my arms around her and then it all came out she bagan balling and venting through me. I think we were hugging for about 5 minutes until two other women in the class came in and got in on it. I told her it was not going to be easy, but I knew she would get through because she is a STRONG women. I just know in my heart she can get through it, I have seen the way she approaches her workouts and the way she holds herself amongst her peers. I told her that we were here for her and that we were a family. And I know I have only been at CFLA for a short period of time but I really feel like they are accepting me as one of their own. And it felt really good to say this to this women who was down and out and to see her reaction, she smiled and said thank you. I am not going to lie I about broke down, it made me so sad to see her like that.

That is how I feel about all of you….I think that all of you are VERY strong people and I have seen it with my own eyes…I believe you guys are capable of enduring the worst kinds of situations and coming out on top in the end….And I just want to let you know that I am there for you with whatever you need. Enjoy the workout
