COMMUNITY

Written by Emily on Wednesday, January 2, 2019

Why are you getting up at 4 a.m.? You’re working out again today?
Didn’t you just do that yesterday?
You’re obsessed.
I just don’t get it.
What is this thing again that you do?

You want to know the great thing about community?
You don’t have to explain yourself.

Those in your community, get it.
They know why you’re there.
They know what it means to you.
How you just don’t feel like yourself if you miss.
They know how it makes you happier. Less stressed. Mentally clearer.

They know what it’s like. Day in. Day out.
That one hour of sweating, fighting and pushing yourself all to leave smiling knowing you have worked out any noise of doubt, anxiety, and second guessing.
That one hour for yourself to make space for the endorphin flow and a daily re-discovery of your capacity.
They know it all too well.

You may not know everyone or their story but when you align your mat with the rest, you breathe a little easier.
Because this is the last place you need to explain yourself.

We share certain commonalities.
Fighting for our best self. Pushing a little harder than the day before. Celebrating progress over perfection and believing only potential exists if you just keep moving.
That, is something worth honoring.

And so, to this big, beautiful, inspiring, gracious, and badass community, we see you, we respect you, and from the bottom of our hearts, we thank you for being a part of this kick-ass family.
