If You Struggle To Find Motivation Today, My Back Injury May Help You…


DON’T take your gifts for granted! If you decided 2013 you would exercise/dance more, and you haven’t yet, guess what?

That can all change in the blink of an eye. It kills me to see…

…people take their abilities for granted. I created a safe place where friends can keep fit, throw down and release stress. I bust my butt every single day to encourage YOU to take class, get inspired, and surround yourself with positivity because that’s the best way to live!

But now, that’s changed…

…I was fine one minute, then instantly lost mobility the next. All I want to do is dance again! Teaching isn’t possible for a while, this sucks. I’m having a hard time encouraging YOU because honestly, I’m too busy thinking about ME.

Open Your Eyes! Look Around You…

So. Some of you need to wake up:

There are people in this world who would give EVERYTHING to have your health, your legs, your opportunities, or even just a CHOICE to improve and make life better. You are blessed and fortunate to have a choice.

Right now, injury has taken away my choice until I fully recover. As Mos Def says:

“Tomorrow may never come… for you and me, life is not promised.”

My blunt message to you is to STOP making excuses in your life and effing TRY something. If you don’t like it or it’s not for you, that’s OK! Just TRY. You DON’T know what will happen tomorrow.

As always, I share because I care. And Thank You for those of you who reached out, I appreciate your thoughts and energy.
