Â I went to the gym yesterday for a group class, more like group torture really :). Ok, ok, it was a really good class! Not as intense as kick-boxing which I have been doing as well. I am taking physical exercise more serious than I ever have because I only have one body on this earth which is also God’s temple and I must take extremely good care of it, and like my mum says, “health is wealth”. Feel free to interpret that as you deem fit 😉
Now where was I? Ahhhhhh the gym! After the class, most of us went to the changing room to clean up, and get rid of the smell of sweat that the workout blessed us with in abundance! While we were there, some of the ladies asked what I do and I told them without hesitation; the next thing I knew, we were talking about the global sex trade with a focus on prostitution and sex trafficking. They asked very good questions like “is every woman working in the Amsterdam Red Light District a victim of trafficking?” “Do some people choose prostitution of their own accord?” “How do they get there?” “If some people are trafficked, why don’t they leave?” Etc… I answered the questions to the best of my knowledge but most importantly, we brainstormed and challenged ourselves to think deeper and come up with healthy solutions+answers to our problems+questions.
The point of this post? Be prepared! You don’t know when you will have an opportunity to share what you believe, what your cause is, what you’re fighting for! Be ready to seize the opportunity when it arises, you never know whose life you will impact.
Oh, and in case you didn’t know 🙂 Germany won the 2014 Fifa World Cup!!!!!!!! WOHOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!! And the Netherlands came 3rd!!!! The two other nations that I was cheering for besides my own, I’m very pleased 🙂
