‘It is not the strength of the body, but the strength of the spirit.’ – J.R.R. Tolkien
Many's an evening which has turned into an early morning....many's a day I wish was 4 hours longer, just so I could fit in 'everything'. The challenge you think you have set too high at times....
I know my business is in it's infancy, and, like the small child it is, requires nurturing. Am I not part of the plan? I am the core of it all and so often of late I find myself reflecting on how to tackle the hard yards. I forget to go to bed early, or get in some exercise or find five minutes to myself to clear my head. Yes - we all have had similar thoughts and feelings.
And you know what? I have realised my classes are not just therapeutic in many ways for those who attend - they are therapy for me, too. My wonderful, brave, special students where age and ability is no boundary - I know what it takes to come to a first lesson, to absorb the unfamiliar, to extend yourself beyond your own expectations, and then, to come back and feel the small leaps of confidence, of wonderment at new and unknown things. We are taking the journey together and I am glad to have you all with me.
