So, I have started writing a book.
Holy moly moo... I just had to force myself to stop writing as I have other commitments in life. Like children. I am just going to plot away at it as I feel the need and desire to write.
You know I am a qualified ballet teacher with the Royal Academy of Dance, I used to have my own ballet school. I never ever thought I would do anything else. Ballet was my life. Ballet was my passion. All I ever wanted as a little girl growing up was to have my own ballet studio and one day become an RAD examiner traveling the world.
Where did that desire go?
The universe pushed me into a different direction and I couldn't be happier.
The universes big push happened when I was 6 months pregnant with James, I was teaching 6 days a week, preparing for ballet exams and a huge end of year concert. I was exhausted.
I woke one day with this overwhelming feeling that I no longer wanted the business. I no longer wanted to teach. I wanted to be there for my baby.
The universe knew. The universe knew I couldn't do both. I couldn't be a special needs Mum and a ballet teacher working that much. I have never regreted my decision, ever.
I had a business partner in the ballet studio. It was a wonderful partnership at first, when I decided to leave it unexpectedly turned to the worst time of my life. I stayed till December only for my commitment to the children. My remaining time there was made miserable by a particular human. Sad to think about now especially when I was there supporting them through one of the toughest times of their life. I wished them luck, packed myself up and moved on.
I wasn't scared of change, I knew that it was no longer my calling. I was at ease.
I truly believe this is my calling.
One of my best friends said to me this morning that the universe makes it easy for you when you are where you need to be. I am where I need to be.
Raising much needed awareness for special needs. I don't know where this path is going to lead but I am confident that I am destined for bigger things.
I am part of a beautiful community of women who just get it.
I now want to share this amzing journey and community with the world.
People need to see how amazing children and adults with special needs are...
One day at a time. Whatever it takes. My message will get out. Its going to be loud, proud and positive. A voice that won't be able to be ignored.... stay tuned.
