CONFLICT...HOW DO YOU DEAL?
I hate conflict!!! I avoid it at all costs, sometimes at great cost to myself. So when it jumps up and slaps me in the face half an hour befor I am to get off work it puts a damper on the remainder of my day. However, Thusday is Boot Camp day! Woo Hoo!!! The perfect antidote to conflict...pain and sweat! Just what the doctor (therapist) ordered. You see when my shoulders wind up around my ears and a huge knot forms along my right shoulder blade...I NEED to workout! When emotions are on the surface and painful memories at the forefront...I NEED to workout! When the world seems to be closing in around me and the week is dragging...I NEED to workout! So God bless Fifi (Fat Insane Fitness Instructor) as we lovingly refer to her, and Lufkin Boot Camp Company and the LAPs (Lufkin Area Pacesetters) running club! Meeting with these two groups weekly helps keep me relatively sane. I say relatively because sanity is relative and some of my relatives would question my sanity. So now it is Friday...the beginning of my weekend with a formal dance on Saturday for my teenage daughter and a long run on Sunday with my LAPs peeps the future is looking up! Here's to a stress free weekend...I'll see you on the run.
