Hi, my name is Donna Papetti and, in some respect, The Warrior Workout is a product of my own personal journey of self exploration and evolution. About 10 years ago I woke up to the realization that I had been asleep in my own life. I recognized that I was playing a game of hide and seek with life and with myself. I was afraid to get to know myself, afraid to accept personal responsibility and afraid to live life fully. Consequently, I was making choices from that place of fear which did not get me what I felt I wanted or needed and I was stuck in an uncomfortable cycle of discontent and disharmony. When I woke up I began living my life over again. I did not know how to do it and I fumbled around quite a bit during which I judged myself endlessly, beat myself up, tortured myself and suffered through it all.

Then I woke up again and began living again. I still didn't know how to do it although it felt like I fumbled less, judged less and didn't feel quite as beaten up. There was more kindness, consideration and compassion. The element of forgiveness was also present.

When I rubbed the sleep out of my eyes yet again, the world looked different. I looked different, everybody looked different. It was all brighter, fuller, new. The hold I had on my needs and wants loosened and the tightness that pervaded my body was no longer there. I could breathe deeply. I could laugh and play again. There wasn't as much mind chatter bouncing around as there used to be and I sensed the availability of a quiet stillness.

I woke up to the possibility of the Miracle that I am. It surprised me. It felt authentic. It expanded. It is not just a possibility now. I am a Miracle.

Every moment I wake up to the Miracle that I am. You are a Miracle also. I am absolutely no different than you. If I discovered this Miracle within me, you can too. That is how The Warrior Workout, came to be a tangible entity, how I got unstuck and how once again, life became a playground full of joy and laughter.
