DANCERS: What Will You Do With Your TIME?

WHAT A TIME we’re living in huh? It’s truly a challenging time for EVERYONE, not just for you or I. 

People wonder how I’m still positive and I know many of you think I’m crazy. Trust me- I have my down moments. I struggle with my mistakes, my challenges, and our new global reality just like you do.

But the way I see it:

1️⃣ I can choose to dwell on how bad things are, stay stuck on mistakes, boredom, misery, blame or victimhood, OR 

2️⃣ I can choose to find ways to improve, stay optimistic and be an improved version of myself when we come out of this. 

The operative words above are CHOOSE. Because the way I see it: 

✅ NOW is the perfect time to level up. We’re ALL facing challenges with finances. With our health. With cancelled or delayed work. 

✅ BUT! We’ve ALL been given an incredible gift: TIME. Lots of time. YOU now have more time. 

✅ BONUS: Your kids now have more time. Your family now has more time. Your entire community now has more time. The whole world Has. More. TIME! 

Isn’t that what we said we wanted? 

The universe sure has an interesting sense of humour.

Here’s the harsh reality. The way I see it: 

If you’ve been putting something off because you “don’t have the time” well guess what? If you DON’T start the thing you’ve always wanted to do because “time” was the issue, it’s not time you lack… It’s discipline. #RealTalk

There was a point when I also thought I “didn’t have time” but I do now. That’s no longer an excuse I tell myself. I’ve used this time to create tap lessons for you to enjoy, help you level up, and stay positive.

The way I see it…

…Every difficulty comes with a seed of opportunity. There’s a lot more TIME coming your way. And that can be a great thing. 

What will you do with yours?
