The Secret Helped Me Attend My Zumba Class.
Hello, I am writing in from Mumbai, India.
Postpartum depression is a topic most moms would be ashamed to discuss. I have been subject to postnatal depression for a year and 5 months. When God gifted me with an adorable daughter, he also gave me this situation to deal with. From a confident, super organized, super healthy woman, I had turned into a disorganised, lunatic mom, my self confidence being eroded every day. I worked very hard and could not say no to anyone, no matter how ridiculous it seemed.
Deep within, I knew that I would have to speak up for myself and my daughter. Deep within, I knew my energy levels and frame of mind would clearly improve with Zumba, group classes that I attended earlier before my pregnancy. For months I struggled to attend class but was unsuccessful. The baby’s chores made it impossible for me to attend.
Now for the miracle. Yesterday as my exhausted self went to bed, I saw the sky from my balcony. Here’s what I said: “Universe, I know I am your favorite. I am placing my order to attend Zumba class tomorrow.”. I fell asleep immediately.
The next morning, I awoke at 6 am. I knew I was attending class at 7:30 am. I calmly prepared my baby’s porridge and got her milk bottle ready. Now I had to awaken my husband who was fast asleep along with my daughter, to tell him I would be away for a good 90 minutes.
Just then a miracle! My maid who comes after 7:45 am, arrived at 7:15 am. Now my husband would have a helping hand in attending to the baby when she woke. I made a dash for class which is luckily just 15 minutes away. That was the best class ever! My soul was full of joy and I returned with renewed energy to look after my baby.
Rhonda, a million thanks from a mother’s heart. I am determined to attend Zumba tomorrow which also happens to be my birthday, and many more such lovely classes.
Thank you Zumba! Thank you Universe!
