Hello all you Zumba girls,

For starters, I want to let you know how much I love being at Zumba and being surrounded by such fun people. It helps me in my life so much. My personal story is not really about exercise but about life challenges that we have to overcome. I was abused as a little girl by someone that I truly love and still do. Since the time I have come to realize what happened to me I have had daily challenges to overcome. Life is not easy when you are constantly having to think about forgiving and forgetting someone that is so dear to you. I have only done it through prayer and the understanding of the Atonement of my Savior, Jesus Christ. I try to live each day as a new day. Some days are good and some not so much. I think by being involved in our lives and surrounding yourself by family and good friends is the key to happiness. It has been a struggle for me to be open about this and I am still pretty closed up about it but life is good. Life brings so many trials and good trials that help us become better people. I want to thank you girls for having the energy and excitement when you come to Zumba. It truly helps with the recovery process. I love Zumba and it does give me motivation to be a better person, mom and spouse and it definitely gives me the energy that I need to keep up with those everyday trails. Remember that life is good no matter what trials we are faced with in or lives. This personal story is by someone that truly loves Zumba but will remain anonymous.
