I am — indeed — still alive. I’m also still dancing, but not like I was back in July. My nutrition consulting business continues, and remains fairly busy. On top of that, I found another job that brings me so much joy. Between work and my business, I’m not going to lie: I’m busier than I’ve ever been in my life.
But I’m also happier than I’ve ever been. While this isn’t completely Pole-related, it’s important to note that I used to work a job that sucked everything out of me. It took my time, my emotional strength, my joy, and my life away each day. I’m realizing that I was mostly motivated to start my own business so that I could run far, far away from my last job. Now I know that what I really wanted was to work in a place and in a way where I could make a difference, feel joy, and be treated as a human being on a daily basis.
Once I can get some semblance of a schedule back in order, and once I can finagle a way to work Pole classes back into my budget, I plan on bringing more dance back into my life. Now that I go to a place that I love to earn a living, it’s time to bring what I love into my down time, as well.
I am so happy you’ve all stayed with me on this journey. I hope to have many more stories to tell in the future.
