It wasn’t what I thought it would be and that’s because I didn’t think anything of it. I hadn’t really considered there would be a group of women I didn’t know lifting me up, lifting each other up.
Wow, is this powerful and empowering! I have experienced the BBG community virtually through Facebook and Instagram, as well as in person at a BBG meet-up. When you don’t have a workout buddy to go with you to the gym and/or encourage you to complete your workout, you have tons a this kind of support online. Ladies posting every day about dragging their feet, but finally making the choice to get after it, others posting inspirational words, and some sharing their BBG transformation progress… And the meet-ups! LOVED it! I have only attended one meet-up in Chicago since I started in January . A group of women organized a BBG aligned workout. We jammed to the tunes and supported each other through the struggle. Afterwards many of us went to get coffee nearby and chatted like we’d known each other. Just reflecting back on it stirs up all the feels and I can’t wait for another BBG meet-up. I have just never experienced anything like it. It’s so beautiful. It’s how I want the world to revolve all the time, lifting up and empowering each other all the time.
Speaking of a positive and empowering community… All of you! The SLOC participants. Isn’t this community a lovely place? There is nothing that makes my heart happier than encouraging and inspiring others.
I hope you all have had a lovely day. I hope you empowered someone or someone empowered you. Maybe even both!
