[What did I learn today? Lessons on the Journey to Unconditional Self Love] Sugar is back!

I move beyond "playing nice" into getting real

So I decided to go to the boxing gym last night after not going for ages!!!
I get there and my old coach is no where in sight! There's a new kid on the
block! We spoke and somehow I am now training to get back in the ring
starting on Monday! An actual fight OMG! When the yes flew out of my mouth
I saw it past by and said oops! I did start with yes didn't I! Me! In a ring! Boxing! I looked at the other ladies there and thought did I just say yes?? Yes I
did!!

Coach went on about how we have to train 5 days a week and it is going to
be tough! That yes was long gone and not returning any time soon! I
messaged my friend "Guess what I just did?"

So a new journey starts on Monday! (They call me Sugar!)

I will let you know how it goes

Peace!!
