Fake it 'til you make it

Tonight was cold! Really Cold! Once again, "cold" is in context. 48 degrees cold! I was tired and COLD! But Zumba was waiting.

Once the class started I forgot all about being cold, but I was still dragging. The teacher decided to wake all of us up - he SPED up the musicto almost double time! It was like Zumba on Speed. Some of the nice girls in the class and I would make eye contact and just start to crack up! We increased our energy, even though we didn't want to, and really put our all in to it! We made faces in the mirror and had a great time with the class. It was an amazing workout, as always, but tonight there was that extra something that made us go the extra mile.

In my case, I DEFINITELY FAKED IT 'TIL I MADE IT!!

I find myself doing that more often these days, in other parts of my life. At work, no matter how many time I answer the same question, I keep a smile in my voice and treat every person who calls like I have all the time in the world for them. During the days, I REALLY want to cry, I put on a smile and go about my day like nothing is wrong.

There are still days where nothing can get me out of my funk, but I'm learning to be a happier person, even though I frequently FAKE IT 'TIL I MAKE IT :)
