The yoga in winning

June 22, 2011

Tone It Up had a Bikini Challenge recently that culminated in a huge grand prize (a trip to Cali to see the gals!) and over 100 other prizes. It was a great series and I love how enthusiastic everyone got! I made lots of great friends during it, too.

They announced the winners today, including the grand prize. And I was *blown* away by the responses! As a totally broad generalization, girls can be catty, and I admit I wasn’t totally sure if cattiness would show up on Twitter this afternoon. But it really didn’t! Everyone supported the grand prize winner (KateKateBear) and the other winners of the challenge. While we were waiting, no one said “I hope soandso wins instead of thisotherperson.” The entire time, everyone was just HAPPY!

Happy for those who won, happy for completing the challenge, happy to have Katrina and Karena in their lives, happy to take an hour and chat w friends. The twatmosphere was glowing and I couldn’t have been prouder.

That’s the yoga in these things. Those moments when, even if you’re disappointed, you take a breath and step out of yourself. You self-talk the judgment away and replace it with love and joy. Life isn’t about *you*, even in these (large-picturey [not to belittle the experience at all!!]) trivial instances – it’s about how *we* interact. The more love there is in that interaction, the better the world is.

Congrats again to all the winners, and namaste to Karena and Katrina!!

    You said it in such a nice wrap up! And true everyone genuinely loves and is happy who ever wins! I love our ToneItUpFamily and I am sure this is one of the reasons why.

    Is it because we are all leading towards the same goals? Would we all have been this loving to each other in one spot too?

    YES, I believe so because love and sharing is just contagious 😉 How do you not love back when everyone is so sweet!
