Just Me and the Box…

happiness-facebook-cover-4Recently, I got asked to coach a few Saturday classes at my box.  Well, with that position, I got a key.

I used that key for the first time today.

The drive from my house is 3 minutes.  In those 3 minutes, my time was magical.  The darkness clung to me like a diamond ring.  It was so amazing.

I arrived at 4:40 am before my 5:30 am class.

It was so quiet.  So serene.  So real.

It was just me and the box and the barbell.

And it was magic.

I deadlifted.  I listened to my music.  I did my own thing.  With no one around to watch. To judge.  To witness.

It was me against myself.

Perfect.

I stretched.  I tested out my bicep/shoulder, which has been injured all week.  I soaked in the solace.  The elation.  Of being back into it after a forced break of 6 days.

Happiness defined.
