My new gig.......

Recently, I have given up on a lot of things!  It is not a bad thing.  When I was sick I had time to dream a lot.  When I got better I hit the ground running. Since then, I have let go of almost 100 million dreams. I have decided to focus only on a few.  The focus has given me so much clarity.  Though it was hard to choose which road to travel, It’s been good for me.

I don’t want to be the perfect wife or the perfect mother.  I just want to try my best.  I don’t want to be a world famous hula hooper.  I just want to try my best.  I don’t need to have the biggest car or house or own a boat or...... I just want to do my best with what I have been given. I don’t want to have the biggest dance store in New Jersey.  I just want to do my best at saving “the local mom’s” time(because I am a mom too and I know how valuable time is) and to be part of a dancer’s journey. 

If you have been following, In May I launched a business.  I opened up a mobile dance store. I started small.  I started with tights around recital season. That’s it.  Just. Tights. I carried a container with me every where.  I did ballet tight deals everywhere. The wawa parking lot, the hair salon, the steps of the performance center, the hallways of the performing art center. It was exciting and an honor and fun. But, at times it was humbling.  It still is sometimes humbling but while I was working this morning I saw this image amongst the Capezio merchandise. 

The tights container NOW fits in my trunk.  Now I don’t just have 1 trunk.  I now have 2!!!!! One day I hope to have my own space that my trunk can fit in with the container that once held all of the tights. #goals But until then....But....until....then.... I am going to carry my trunks proud.  I am growing.  I am growing slow, but I am still growing. I am learning. I am getting to know my customer base and I love that all so much.  

We all have to start somewhere. I just want to be the best I can and today I saw a movement from where I started.   I know, very well, this journey is all my own and I just can’t be compared to anyone else.

You, on your own journey, can not compare either.   No one holds a candle to you.  Be you!  Dream to be the best version of you that you can be. 

Happy Back to (Dance)School season everyone!
