How to Live Magically in the "Real" World

"Stay far from timid, only make moves when your heart is in it, and live the phrase the sky's the limit." — Notorious B.I.G

For years, while living in Brooklyn, I would trek across snowy NY streets in biting cold wind to get to the gym.

Taking aerobics and yoga classes kept me motivated, I loved working out with other people.

Eventually, we moved to a new neighborhood where I lived across the street from my place of work, a University. Now, I had free NYC parking, super cheap gym and olympic pool access.

I really had some amazing Golden Handcuffs, but it did come with a price (my soul integrity.)

After a decade long job at this University, I quit.

I gave up a steady pay check and worried a lot about money.

And even though, I finally lived in a building with a gym and could save money on a membership, I missed taking group classes.

I happened to live across a major gym facility (with amazing classes.)
