It’s International Women’s Day. We get a whole day dedicated to us and the wonderful, brave, resourceful beings that we are. Yes, these are all qualities that men have too but today’s about us…❤️
So anyway I’ve spent today with some pretty awesome women, like the beautiful ladies in the aqua aerobics class I covered today, giving it their all. It used to be my class before I gave it up to pursue my Oh My Makery dream pretty much a year ago. It was lovely to see them all again. You know if I’m honest I really do not enjoy teaching aqua aerobics; jumping up and down on concrete in a humid 30 degrees C, the acoustics of a biscuit tin and a head mic with an intermittent fault …. Yey.
Each Thursday I would teach spin followed by aqua, and each Thursday I would be filled with dread and loathing of the coming aqua class and then the magic happened. The ladies would turn up. Contrary to popular opinion they were not all in their 60’s in skirted costumes and flowery swim hats, however the ones that were rocked! No, ladies if all ages, shapes and sizes would come along and that dreaded 45 minutes would be transformed.
Where am I going with this? Well for me, this proved week after week that you could be happy even though superficially you were doing something you didn’t think you enjoyed IF you choose to see the beauty in others, the light that shines in all of us and connects us…
And today on International Women’s Day I have had the opportunity to reflect upon this in the presence of wonderful women and also to feel proud of myself and how far I have travelled this year,
