Hello everyone! Welcome to my blog and welcome to the new year. I spent yesterday with my best friends and today with family. I can honestly say, I am looking forward to 2018. And it is already looking up.
2017, by far, was the rockiest year of my life. It started with a canceled Canada trip, a near concussion on some ski slopes, and then missing my New Years kiss because I was too sleepy to stay awake.
When I tell you that this year went a completely unexpected way, I mean it. January 1 of last year, I thought I would still be in New York teaching dance. I thought I would possibly be engaged by Christmas…something that I was so excited about. And I thought that I would be planning out my life with my “best friend”. As you can probably assume, it didn’t turn out like that.
In February, my (now ex) kickstarted a very painful 6 month long breakup that left me feeling exhausted, used, and completely destroyed.
In March, I turned 20. It was the most alone I had ever felt before.
In April, I got a call from the dance studio owner in Georgia asking if I would teach back at home. I took the job.
In May, the stringing along of my relationship intensified. Dance ended.
In June, I was able to travel and I finically made the move back to Georgia. Also, I learned how to sew which was really fun.
In July, I started teaching at The Vibe for Intensive. I couldn’t have been happier. I felt so full of love and joy in that part of my life, but still the troubles with my….I didn’t even know what to call him at this point were killing me.
In August, the dance year started. And the break up officially ended…even though the pain didn’t.
In September, I started working at Merle Norman. A job that would push me in very interesting ways and allow me to make so many women feel beautiful. I also started dating someone new.
In October, I spent the entire month planning out awesome Halloween costumes.
In November, I learned that work comes first, and spent my first Thanksgiving alone. Well…kind of…shout out to the nursing home!
In December, I dumped September guy. Accepted the fact that not all relationships are meant to work out. Cut off all talking with my other ex, and started to finally put myself first. Started working with an awesome dance family on my first production as a teacher. Completed my first Christmas show with The Vibe. Then I topped it all off by meeting someone unexpected and ringing in the New Year with some of my best friends.
As you can see, a lot went down in 2017. However, you can trust me when I say that I am making 2018 my bitch. I talk about what I want from it in my new YouTube video.
And YOU will know all about it, because I have no one holding me back and telling me I can’t. Stay tuned for more posts than you could imagine. They are coming.
