Ah, I am usually categorically against being similar. In fact, I like being odd. But, I feel a good fit with sparkers and have come to the conclusion that I have been assimilated.
I think I feel like part of the community. For a traveler who usually feels like an outsider, that is a big deal. A good thing then.
Today I pondered joining the ranks of video exercise fans to Chalene's Turbo Jam. Perhaps I am only partially assimilated. I do not jam to group exercise, and abhor the fit channel.
There is nothing wrong with group exercise. I tried an aerobics class once and was always a beat behind, moving the wrong direction and wanting to run! Dance, to me, has to come from within, and doing what some one else is doing feels insincere. Who cares? I guess I do. Well then, perhaps in six months I will have adjusted enough to overcome my discomfort and can engage in a bigger network of healthy folk.
