Someone told me a few weeks back, one thing they like about me is that I know myself. I smirked at the compliment because I know for years and even at times right now, I struggle to put my whole self out there.
This friend was referring to me putting my new dance inspired workout video clips on social media. She was also referring to me saying no, when asked to continue teaching a step class I was helping cover at a local gym.
The irony: I was in the same exact position 12 years ago...
...but at that time I said yes to teaching step and it completely side tracked me from getting back into my dancing.
It has taken me over a decade to work it back in and crazily enough, I was being asked the same exact question.
I wasn't going to make the same mistake twice. But that doesn't mean it was an easy decision to make.
Saying no is hard to do, but it is a necessity in order for you to live the life YOU want to live.
Although I know this is true, I especially find it hard being a mom. Since become a mother of 2 I have noticed pieces of me slipping away. Some I am okay with. Like staying up to an ungodly hour in a bar with mostly strangers surrounding me, as we drink the night away. But I am not ok with letting go of the things that inspire me & make me feel alive. Those...I am going to fight for.
What about you?
What kind of life do you dream about living?
Don't be shy and don't second guess your abilities.
Your Life Is Yours To Live...Now LIVE IT!!!
