Not dissimilar from other gyms, mine goes to certain lengths to create itself as a sanctuary for muscles and motivation.
Having forgotten my essential headphones to listen to a round of Ted talks (I highly recommend Monica Lewinsky’s “The Price Of Shame”, by the way) during my usual cycle, I was stuck for entertainment.
Nothing more than ceiling mounted TV’s filled with risqué (sometimes too risqué for 7am weights session) music videos.
Who needs unsolicited advice? Where’s the credence?
Lately though, I’ve been doing less scoffing and a little more, let’s say, digestion. Maybe it was the boredom of no headphones but the random quotes that day kinda intrigued me…maybe even (shock, horror) inspired me.
But that’s the thing about quotes.
They’re so personal that they’ll only resonate when you’re ready.
Thanks to those who shared with me their gems:
Just like Emily, who doesn’t love the firmly grounded Michael J. Fox?
Allowing you to turn to steadfast friends like Daisy.
Highlighting the importance to live for the here and now.
Encouraging you to look no further (Right, Jess?)
Just appearing on your news feed to give you perspective (Thanks for the reminder, Brenda)
Or that much needed kick up the behind (courtesy of Leanda)
And if not you, someone else…
Then, there just might be your own words to live by:
