To the Girl at the Gym

To the girl at the gym:
I see you.
I see you because you showed up.
In what ever condition you came in – you showed up.
Even if you don’t know what you’re doing. Even if you are intimidated. Even if you’re tired. Or scared or nervous or even if you really just don’t want to be here.
 You showed up. 
I don’t notice what size you are or what strength you have or what clothes you’re wearing or what shape your butt is. (Well I do notice nice butts, but I digress…)
I just noticed that you showed up. You’re here.
And I’m proud of you.
I’m proud of you for showing up.
For giving yourself the gift of health. The gift of credibility within yourself.
The gift of grit and strength.
I am proud of you for remembering that you’re worth it.
You are not afraid of failure. You are afraid of not trying. Of not showing up. 
You showed up. You’ve already won. Now keep going.
I am proud of you sister.
