Anhedonia has been a constant companion for the past 6 weeks. Today, for the first time in over a month, I was able to set foot in the gym, shut my mind off, and be in my body.
I was alone with my breath and the sensation of my muscles at work. I smiled big behind my mask as my bangs got damp then drenched in sweat. It felt amazing to finally feel something; to finally have a moment of peace.
I surprised myself at the strength and resilience my body showed. It’s like no time had passed at all, in fact, I felt stronger. I was able to lift more, do more reps.
By the end of my session I did not want to leave, but I know that in order to do more tomorrow I can’t overdo it today.
I’m so grateful for this beautiful Sunday. If today wasn’t as bright for you, I want to remind you that glimpses of light are in your future too.
