A few weeks ago I went to a reunion lunch that I organized which took I think 3 months to make happen!
The group, some of my very first Belly Dance Students from maybe 7-10 years ago! We all became friends at one point, and then as everyone started getting married and some having kids, life got hectic and we all parted ways. When we saw each other was at our weddings and some baby showers. We all followed each other through Facebook, but one day I decided, I wasn’t seeing enough of different groups of friends. Part of my life now is rekindling friendships from the distant past that were meaningful to me which just got sidetracked with life.
It was a really nice afternoon. We went to spring rolls downtown. Everyone talked about their kids which was really entertaining. I don’t have kids by choice, so i listen and enjoy, and they all listen to my crazy life. haha
My life full of Martial Arts, Dance, Fitness and Partying. I would like to start adding Travelling back into that list!
We all decided that we should try and meet every 6 months now. I suggested every 3 months, and we decided maybe if we try for every 3 months we will actually meet every 6 months.
Sometimes bonds we create with people when we are younger become just as good if not better later in life. I look forward to rekindling these connections further.
I am just sitting at Starbucks on my morning break before heading back to CoreFit Training to train my clients. Its beautiful and sunny and could not ask for anything more. Well….except for a vacation!! hahaha
I have not written here in a while. So much has been going on! There have been a lot of life changes over the past little while. Some good, some appearing not to be good. But really, sometimes things that don’t seem positive are just disguised that way.
I am super happy to be really busy with personal training again. It took me about 2 years to rebuild my clientele up to where it was before I left working for a large corporation. I am happy because I am now able to help a lot of people, and income is not a worry anymore. I do miss having a lot of spare time, but the good thing about being really busy is that, I stay way more organized. I am actually able to accomplish many more things on a daily and weekly basis as well.
In January I returned to flamenco dancing after what I was told about a 2.5 year break! Man, I am never taking that long a break from flamenco ever again. I have a show coming up in August! Excited, yet scared at the same time as i have not done a stage show/recital in either Flamenco or Belly Dance in years! That is ok…i will rock it man! hahaha
Been through some injuries as well…but I am finally getting my body back to normal which means I can train myself again, I can get back into muay thai hopefully full force again and I can keep dancing!
I now just need to find the moment for my next small, medium and large vacations! I need to get away!
As I sit at my desk typing this, i am listening to the sound of the rain falling outside my window and a bus going by. Just waiting to finish my laundry and then make dinner and meal prep for the next couple days.
I have some exciting things coming up!
- Reunion Lunch with a group of girlfriends who were my very first serious bellydance students ever
- Flamenco Juerga (Party) hosted by my flamenco dance teacher Carmen Romero
- My mom’s 76th birthday
