ZUMBA, ZUMBA, ZUMBA…….. If you have been traveling with me on this journey you would know that I next fitness class for the month was Zumba. And yes I took the class and I was very surprised. Okay let me explain what I mean by I was surprised. So, when I went to the class this time I felt very confident about myself, after all I just finished taking a hip hop fitness class for a month so this would be easy for me. I was so wrong…. I went into the class and I was a little more open to the people in like, meaning that I was a little more talkative. The instructor was also very upbeat and friendly. The one thing that I really liked about the instructor was that she explained what type of shoes we should have on, and if we did not have on those type of shoes what the difference in the movement would be. And then the warm-up started and we were off. And I thought to myself, oh I am going to be doing Latin type of dances. Surprise!!!!!!!! I did not know that Zumba would have a Latin type of feel, I thought that I would just be dancing. After that little surprise I thought, okay this will be fun and I would be able to get a lot f steps (because I have a fitbt that counts my steps). So, all in all I was surprised and yet still very excited about the new class.
As the class was warming up more people began to arrive to the class, which is always a plus because the class feeds off of the people in the class. I was in the very back, because I did not want to mess up the other people in the class. Warm up is done and now the class has started, and there was this one step that I just could not get. The instructor noticed that I was having some trouble with the step and she let me know that it was okay and that it takes time–just keep moving. And that is just want I did. This time when I messed up I did not get embarrassed, I jut kept moving.
This class was vey upbeat but upbeat in a different way. The hip hop class was out of my comfort zone but it was not to far out of my comfort zone. However, this Zumba class was more out of my comfort zone, and I am so happy that I am taking the class. I was not able to attend the class today because of the winter storm, but I will continue to go to the Zumba class and just have fun. I am learning (through these group fitness classes) that I don’t need to be concerned with what people think about me. My focus need to be on God and what He has for me. So, my focus in this class is different from last time. In the hip hop class I wanted to make sure that I did not look a hot mess and to finish the classes. This time I am focused on having fun, and listening for God to speak to me.
Well, that is it for now. So, you know I have to ask-where is your focus? We have to put our focus on the right things so we can get to where God desires us to be. If we get comfortable where we are we will not to where God desires us to be; and trust me when I say that getting to where God desires you to be is not comfortable-yet it will bring comfort (financial, mental, and spiritual). So, again-Where Is Your Focus? Keep reading and I will keep sharing; until next time…..
