Thank you from the bottom of my heart x
June 22nd we will be back as restrictions finally ease up.
Soon we will be back at HQ, smiling, laughing and doing what we love to do, lift and do it alongside each other.
As I sit here writing this message to you, individually and as a community I kind of don’t know where to start. I’ve been thinking about what to say for the past few days and how might be the best way to express everything I am currently feeling and the intention of this email.
Excuse the ramble that you might read, it comes from my tired, broken, grateful soul.
I expected many challenges that might come up as the owner of a gym; being forced to close our doors due to a pandemic for over 3 months…I didn’t see that coming.
Like all of you, my beautiful strong women, I have been up and down during this time. The last month, the majority of my mornings have involved me pulling myself out of bed and saying these exact words to myself “Ok, you can get through the day.”.
Amongst the daily tears, there have been messages and calls that have kept me going.
To say I am thankful to all of you for everything you have allowed us to continue to fight for doesn’t describe the depths in which I feel this.
Without all of you continuing to support us, me, our team and each other, BBB would not exist.
Thank you for continuing to show up for us and for yourselves.
I have seen and felt so much happen for our entire community. We have had ladies on the front line. Ladies losing their jobs. Relationships challenged, health scares, babies created. Ladies at breaking point. There have been weeks where we have all had to take some time to breathe and recalibrate. And there have been weeks upon weeks where you have all chosen to step back into the arena and show up. Put one foot in front of the other, grab your household item and launch into a tempo exercise (whether you have felt capable to do it or not).
I want to thank you from my heart to yours for your love and loyalty towards me and my little old gym.
We were fighters before this. We were strong fierce women that could give it a nudge.
This fight inside us, she still remains but she is tired and needs a rest.
Coming out the other side, I see much stronger forces that have pulled us through.
Without love for ourselves and others, we wouldn’t keep showing up.
Without vulnerabilities shared, we wouldn’t have been able to work through the struggles week to week and continue to step up and into the challenges.
Without empathy we wouldn’t have felt comfortable to let it all out.
Thank you my Queens.
I miss you dearly.
I appreciate you all.
And I can’t wait to see and hug you all again soon.
Stay tuned for next week’s newsletter!
