Here's the thing. Every instructor is going to have a bad day here and there. How good they hide it? Well that's depending on the person. When you come to take a workout class you have certain expectations for the instructor. You expect them to motivate you, to push you, and to be generally happy or in a good mood. Last week, I had a bad week. Ever since Tuesday it felt like I was finding out one bad thing after another and just having really generally crappy days. This was the first time this had really happened to me as an instructor and I didn't know how to handle it. I didn't know if I should acknowledge it to the class, or put on a fake happy smile and pretending like everything was fine.
This week I came back down to Earth and put a lot of things into perspective. I realized that there are definitely people who are having worse weeks than me (for example, the people who keep getting hit after hit by each crazy hurricane), but I also realized that it is OK to have a bad day. When you do have a bad day though, try to leave it at that day. Do not bring it into the next day or the day after that. Not everyday is going to be your day and thats ok. You have to find the positive things in life, the things you're thankful for and the things that don't make whatever situation that's going on in your life seem so bad. I am so thankful for my family, my boyfriend, my friends, having a roof over my head, having a steady job, being able to teach spin, and most of all each day I get to live my damn life. There is SO MUCH TO BE THANKFUL FOR. Try to find those reasons whenever you find yourself dwelling on the negative.
