About a month ago I started working with a personal trainer. I was scared before meeting and working out with him, but after the first time, we kind of bonded and I loved him (not in an inappropriate way though…lol).
Then last week he told me he was moving back to Florida. I was slightly devastated at the news. He introduced me to the new guy and said he thought we’d get along great, but I had my doubts….mostly just thinking "no way can I get THAT lucky, twice in a row" (I have heard some horror stories about trainers!).
Well…..I had my first session with the new guy tonight and he’s AWESOME!!! Very supportive, encouraging, dare I say even a wee bit better than my last guy, even. I’m thrilled!
The moral of the story is, sometimes changes we dread can be GOOD for us.
Do you agree? Do you have any examples of that idea from your own life?

That’s awesome! Hmm, I can’t think of anything like that from my life. I do remember when my piano teacher moved away when I was in the 7th grade, and my new one sucked! i tried to give her a chance, but it didn’t work out. Maybe now that I’m older a change like that wouldn’t throw me off so much!

I had to move to Vancouver from Toronto due to some unfortunate family issues… I was devastated.
However, had I not moved to Vancouver and had I actually known someone in this city at the time… my relationship with my FI would never have developed.
We met while I lived in Toronto, but I never gave him the time of day until one lonely night in my new city lol.
Btw: If my trainer moved, I’d die. He trains me, but he also hosts an AM circuit class… and last week he missed it! My day didn’t feel the same. lol I also have a love for my trainer, possibly inappropriate though 😛 jusssst kidding!

I’m so glad you like your new trainer, Lorienne. And I think you’re totally right, no matter how hard it can be, sometimes change can lead to good things. The biggest change I’ve had recently was quitting my full-time (BORING) job to go back to school to get certified as a teacher. It was really scary and has been difficult, but it’s been totally worth it. Sometimes I think you need to make a change to grow.

I’m a poster child for having problems with change. It’s difficult as a doctor, because in residency, you change what you are doing once a month. Right now, I’m undergoing mega life changes (new job, new grant, wedding), and I’m hoping that these changes will only bring good things!

@mouse, sorry you had that experience. Did you keep on with your lessons or did you drop them?
@RecessionistaBride — WOW! That is an extreme(ly good!) example of how something you are just not so sure about turns into the thing you are MOST sure about. Yay!
@Jessie516 – kudos to you for having the courage to leap to pursue your dream. I bet you will be a GREAT teacher!
@doctorgirl — hear, hear!! Only very good things for you from all these changes!
