I went to the Aqua Yoga class on Monday morning, despite my trepidation. I got my big girl pants on (read: found a bathing suit that fit) and I went. I pulled up to the door at 8:59am. This is significant because usually I am at least a half an hour early for everything. Because it was so late, though, I didn’t have time to hesitate. I just got out of my car and went right in.
As soon as I entered the pool area, I knew I had done the right thing by finally going. The instructor was playing music for the class and the song that was on was this: “Happy” by Pharrell. People that know me know that this is my new favorite song! Because I heard the Happy song, I was immediately put at ease. I took it as a sign that I was in the right place.
Two other positive signs:
- The instructor, Jennifer, reminded me of one of my best friends, Karyn.
- One of the other women in the class reminded me of my one of my grandmothers.
So how did it go? It was hard! It was fun! Everyone was so nice! I wish I had started going (like the other women had) six months ago!
