November Exercising Together

There’s a Beginner in ALL of US!

“Every new beginning comes from some other beginning’s end.” - Semisonic

This year has shown us this cycle time and time again. We start our day. We find our groove. Then we realize that the consistency we crave has shifted or has been taken away. Once again, we find ourselves at a new beginning. In those moments, it is easy to become frustrated that we cannot find any consistency or continuity for self-care. The more we hold onto those feelings of frustration, the more we derail our personal journey. If we can shift our perspective to recognize that this cycle of beginnings, middles and ends is here to teach us, we can keep our objectives towards our larger goals clear.

Rarely do we grow in times of great joy. It is through discomfort that we grow immensely. As you find your new beginning, be mindful of the previous cycle. Ask poignant questions such as what is this discomfort here to teach me? What did I learn from the previous cycle that I can carry with me to this new beginning? How do I make it happen? What can I do if plans change? Who are the people in my corner who can support me? When we figure out our “why” we can most certainly figure out the “how."

There is solace in knowing that we are in this together. A way to unify during these times is to join a class at the YMCA where everyone is there for a common purpose. Instructors at the YMCA want to serve you during these challenging times. Classes hold a sincere intention to keep the body strong, to eat healthy, to support one another through cheers and laughter. When the world feels upside down, our small actions become mercies to our spiritual growth.

Our Mission: To put Christian principles into practice through programs that build healthy spirit, mind and body for all.
