I think I’m finally beginning to find peace in my life. I’ve had to make a lot of changes, and hard decisions, but I think they have all been for the best. For once in a very long time, I really just feel calm, and content. No misery. No heartache. Just peace. I’m so incredibly thankful for my group of friends. Spending as much time with them as I have lately has made things so much easier. It’s helped me to feel better about myself, and realize my worth. I don’t feel so lonely anymore. Now that I’ve thrown myself head over heels into silks training, I feel so much more positive and motivated as well. The aerial community is just absolutely mind-blowing. I’ve never felt so welcome, supported, or believed in, in my entire life. Just within the past 2 months of finally getting myself back into silks, I’ve moved up 2 levels, and am in the advanced class. I’ve met some incredible people, and have been receiving some amazing opportunities. The aerial community is polar opposite to ballroom. People want you to succeed, and they want to see you get better. They want to help you. As I’ve shared my goal of getting onto Cirque, people were suddenly doing research for me, and getting me connected to people that had more information and could provide me with some direction. People have been pointing me to different trainers, and studios, and putting in good words for me. It’s breath-taking. People who barely know me are going out of their way to help me. I’ve never felt so thankful in my life. It is just such a positive, healthy environment and I really needed this. It’s so exciting to see all these doors and possibilities opening up. And it’s crazy to think but I might just have a shot at getting on to cirque. May the intensive training begin!
