Triumph vs. Deflated (Bubble Buster)

by Vivian Fleitstra on May 8, 2013

Triumph ~ A great victory or achievement.


Lately , I have been studying for my SPIN certification (indoor cycling).   It’s something I love to do, a great way to get or stay in shape.  I don’t run like I want to, as it bothers my knees, so I opted for SPIN (indoor cycling) because I love it and the bonus is; it burns approximately 500 calories (women) and up to 1,000 calories (for men).   I love cardio and didn’t find anything that compared to the way I felt when I ran until I found Spinning.  So, I made a conscientious decision to go take the training and design classes, and take the test.  I recently passed my test and was feeling VERY proud.  You know, that feeling when you doubt yourself, but push yourself through and find victory ~ Triumph!   No matter how BIG or small.  The feeling of accomplishment.  You did it!! I did it!!

Similarly, when you set out to lose weight, and you lose your first 5 lbs.  It’s not a lot, but that first week is so tough, so certainly a victory and something you should be proud of.

In both cases, it required discipline, perseverance and persistence.  You earned it!  Naturally, the most common thing to do is to share it.  So you tell family, friends, might even share your joy and victory on Facebook.

Unfortunately, there is always one, sometimes more, that takes the wind out of your sail, takes you down a notch, or as I refer to the Bubble Buster, aka… deflaters.

deflates ~ To reduce or lessen the size or importance of.


I’m here to tell you ~ don’t let the negative ruin the positive.  Set aside the negative comments, and reach for your dreams, and stick to your goals.  Believe in your successes and you will continue to Be It!   Continuing doing the things that make you happy, and make you feel good, not only on the outside, but also on the inside.
