There are lots of reasons people go to the gym.
Some peeps want to feel healthier, some want to look better, some are just bored, and some are doing it so they don’t f’n die.
They’re all good reasons.
This week at the gym I found another great reason, the inspiration.
There were dozens of inspiring post-it notes plastered all over the walls, mirrors, and lockers for seemingly no reason other than to give people a lift.
I thought it was pretty bad-ass, myself.
Here’s a quick sampling of some of the messages:
The crazy part is that this is just a tiny sampling. There were probably another two dozen of these suckers plastered all over the locker room.
There was even one in the sauna (not pictured for obvious reasons) that said “sweaty is sexy.” I thought it was hilarious.
I think my personal favorite of this bunch was the “You are made of 100% awesome!” note, but let’s be real here, a lightning bolt makes everything better.
I’ve got no idea about the who, the what, the when, or the why surrounding these things, but I do know that I totally dig ’em.
Personally, I think it’d be awesome to find more random inspirational messages like this in every day life.
How cool would it be to open up the freezer door to get some frozen waffles and there’s a note telling you that you’re the bees’ knees?
Or how bad-ass would it be if you’re at Target sifting through the $5 DVD bin and you pull out a note that tells you how much you reek of awesomeness?
Despite my desire to create a groundbreaking new internet meme, I feel like this has real-world meme written all over it.
