Trying to find samples of my writing capabilities…realizing that I’ve lost practically everything that wasn’t online due to 3 computer deaths and 2 moves…my brain is slowly exploding!! :-/ Boo!!
Stop wanting what you don’t want. Define life for yourself. Decide what it means to you to be happy and dedicated and alive. Live by your own definitions. Pick something to perfect, and perfect it. Pick something to stop caring about, and refuse to give a shit. Don’t waste your energy on things just because other people do. Spend less time obsessing and more time actually doing. Forget about yesterday. Stop over-planning for tomorrow. Yesterday and tomorrow are just romanticized versions of today.
—:-D A brilliant personal manifesto!
If you want to change your life, change your life. Change your story and then change your habits and then just do one small thing after another to move you in the direction you want to go. It doesn’t matter how slow you’re moving as long as you’re moving. As long as you’re making relentless forward progress. And guess what? Part of forward progress means pausing sometimes and getting off track sometimes and wandering around in circles and taking sixteen steps back because that’s what real change in real life looks like.
Feeling really inspired lately, thanks to people and posts like these!! :-D

Sooooo…pole fitness is completely different from aerial work! :-D I enjoyed the class sooooo much more! It’s far more “dance-y” than aerial!
I didn’t feel like a complete idiot, I was able to actually climb the pole (haha, compared to my silks climb (or, as I like to remember, incredibly slow fall)), and I was able to move on it! :-D Yeah!!!
I felt the class last night, then this morning, I was really, really, really feeling it! I have to say, as you get a little older, man do you feel differently after a hard class! ;-) I’m going to definitely be taking next Wednesday’s class and I’m going to try to take this Sunday’s class!!
The only downside was, like many “beginning classes” it wasn’t really beginning…but more of an advanced beginning/intermediate, so I wasn’t able to learn any of the basic spins…instead I was given some super hard spins that I didn’t make complete revolutions in. Buuuuut, oh well, it is what it is…I’ll learn them! ;-) Oh and there’s a ton of “knee work” so, beware! ;-) I had to improvise and alter moves, due to the lack of flexibility in my bad knee, but the knee is fine afterwards!
So there you are…in my humble opinion, you need to take a pole fitness class in your lifetime, cause it’s a fantastic workout and makes you feel fabulous!
So, I’m taking my very first pole fitness class tomorrow and I’m super stoked…buuuut…I just have a feeling that what’s in my mind and what I will actually look like are two completely different things! ;-)
Yeah…or maybe this!
Hehehe! Well, I’m just hoping that it goes a little better than my aerial experience! ;-)
I’ll report back tomorrow and give you a good laugh!!
A belated congratulations goes out to Yahoo! for buying Tumblr! :-D
Let’s just hope that their monetize-ation plans don’t screw up the essence of what makes Tumblr a wonderful site! ;-)
Acro Yoga looks so awesome, but I do believe that you need some resemblance of balance to be good…hehehe!
