I have been avoiding posting for a few days and making decisions like this one is not easy but necessary. I even contemplated not writing about this at all but it is a part of my life and in my blogging I include what is part of my ballet life whether it being weight loss, sore muscles, or new leg warmers. It even includes the tough things that sometimes we don’t like to talk about but must acknowledge and keep moving onward. I think writing this out will be cathartic for me and to help me better manage the new changes in our lives in the near future.
Friday, my husband was unexpectedly laid off from his employment. For the past few days we have closed ranks and kissed the wounds and are looking to find ways to keep moving on. Since things are uncertain at this point, I will have to delay my ballet classes until a point in the future when things are more certain for our family. My heart breaks at the thought of that but it does not mean I will never get back into the studio but it will not be happening on August 19th.
I will continue to lose weight and workout, that is something I won’t stop doing because the dance classes will happen, hopefully just a few months from now. So I’ll be in even better shape than I am now and that will be a good thing. Yes, the blog is continuing on! I am still as ballet obsessed as ever and I always have lots to say, probably too much!
Things happen for a reason and I have to trust in my faith and that a year from now all of this will be but a memory. Being a grown up and making grown up decisions sometimes stinks but it must be done. Time to pull up my socks and put on my hat of positivity to help my family move on from this situation the best we can.
