Sometimes life lessons come in unexpected places.
Like from exercise videos.
I wrote about it once before, in Life In General, in a chapter called “You Can’t Do It Wrong.” My favorite exercise videos are Leslie Sansone’s Walk At Home program, and Leslie herself always provides an extra dose of energy and “feel-good-ness” that I appreciate to start my day. Her upbeat optimism and encouraging words (like “You can’t do it wrong!”) are the best thing an exercise averse person such as myself needs to hear.
The other day I was in the “cool down” phase of a video I’ve done many times before, when a particular phrase jumped out at me.
