I talk alot about health!
Whether it’s healthy eating, getting enough rest, drinking your water, etc. But today, I’ll be talking about the most beneficial thing you can do to secure healthy living.
It doesn’t matter how much you work out or how clean you eat; if you don’t secure your circle, you will never become your highest self.
A few years ago, I belonged to a gym called Lifetime Fitness. The biggest mistake that I’ve made was joining this gym and befriending petty women. There was this one older lady that reminded me so much of Lisa Vanderpump. She wasn’t rich or stylish, but she was calculated, sneaky, gossipy, slimy, and lacked a backbone.
The first time I engaged in a conversation with her, I was walking out of TJ Maxx, and she took the liberty to warn me about every woman in the gym except one. I only knew one of the women she degraded, and shortly after, I met the rest.
When I was a regular at the gym, I began chatting and getting reasonably close to three of the women that she said she hated. She referred to them as broke, insecure, lonely bitches. But the funny thing is I would find her engaging with two of the three. Which caught me off guard because she referred to herself as a “tell it like it is New Yorker.” She would often say that she was anything but fake.
But what she indeed was is someone to keep at a distance and only say hi and bye.
She and I quickly met toe-to-toe when she grew angry because I didn’t take her advice on a woman she despised. Sounds petty, right? Here we have a woman in her late 60’s or early 70’s acting like a middle schooler.
I laugh and talk with everyone. I could care less about who likes who. The only people that truly matter to me are my family. Well, when The copycat LV saw that all friendships were intact, she stopped talking to me, and I’m sure that’s when I crept on her list to bash. WELL, BASH AWAY!
When she saw that I didn’t miss a beat and kept on being me, she then decided to say hello to me. Many people assume that I’m the kind of person who will let things slide well, that is unless you know me. Little did she know once you put me on the do not disturb list, keep me on it. Because my following words spoken will not be too kind. Once she identified that, she backed down like the copycat she is.
Ironically after her pride was bruised, she quickly went to work on my character to whoever would listen.
Whenever I stop and think about the copycat LV and my Lifetime fitness days, I instantly feel lighter. There isn’t a workout plan that I could do to make me feel more fit than I already do.
Sometimes the weight that you need to shed isn’t your own.
You could have chosen any bog to read, but you chose mine, and I’m honored!
