And I KNOW this is the place to go for it!
Tell me I can, please? Tell me I can do these things I want to do. Tell me I'm good enough. I need affirmations that I'm just not quite feeling yet, but I want to!
I recently became a hoopnotica certified hula hooping instructor, and I feel like I'm standing in my own way as far as starting to teach classes. I WANT to teach, I WANT to branch out from just doing massage and start working on the fitness side of our business (I co-own a fitness and massage company with a personal trainer) I WANT to start contracting more massage therapists with our company so that I can concentrate on 1) my regular clients I already have 2) the actual business of running our business and 3) building hooping classes and groups. I love being a massage therapist, but I want to be MORE too. Am I crazy?
I got an email from Hoopnotica a couple days ago. I had submitted my story of weight loss and hooping and what it means to me. They notified me that I was one of the people chosen to be a testimonial for them. They're going to use my story as a testimonial to what hooping can do, and I'm VERY excited about that, but I know myself.
I have to write my bio, my story in a longer format that I gave them already, and take pictures of myself...by March 15th. I'm terrified. Mere words cannot express how much I HATE pictures of myself. I'm afraid I'm going to listen to the voices in my head that tell me how bad I look, and that I should just be satisfied with what I'm doing now...and just procrastinate myself out of doing what I need to do to go forward with this. It's a huge leap for me, and I suspect being part of the hoopnotica thing will give legitimacy to classes that I put together too.
I've also been asked by a friend to write an article on hooping for an e-magazine she and her business are starting. This is another fantastic way to get my name out there as an expert on hooping. This is also due by mid-March.
Tell me I can do this. Tell me I don't want too much, that I can work at this, and make it happen the way I want it to. Help me to not stand in my own way....please?
I know this is a little disjointed, but I had to type it as I was feeling it, or I don't know if I'd have gotten it out.

Waiting for snow. We're currently under a winter storm warning, but there's no snow happening yet. They keep moving it later and later...it was supposed to start at 6:00, then 9:00 now it's after 11:00 and so far, we have nothing.
I don't have any clients booked for tomorrow, and my kids have been off all this week for midwinter break anyway, so if it snows, it's not a huge deal. We have an appt at 10:30 with the accountant about our taxes (business and personal) so I'm not going to be terribly heartbroken if we have to cancel due to the weather. My only real concern is I've started an exercise streak, at least 15 minutes a day through Lent, and I'm not sure what I'm going to do if I can't get out of the house, but I'll find a way to workout, even if it's on the Wii.

I am now a certified Hoopnotica instructor! I spent 8 hours yesterday getting my Hoopnotica Fitness certification and today was 8 hours getting the Hoopnotica Dance I certification. SO cool! SO fun! Also so scary, and showed me how little I really knew...but totally worth it!
I think everyone should do something, occasionally, that makes them feel totally humbled and completely inept. I took care of that this weekend...LOL. I thought I was an okay hooper, now I know how much I didn't know, and not only is this a HUGE step in improving my own practice...but now I can share my addiction with others! AND hopefully I can make a little$ at it too.
SOOOOOOOOOOO very thankful :)

but I got a new dress today...lol. We're going to a charity dance in a couple weeks, and it's a HUGE deal. A lot of important people, the city leaders, etc will be there. This will be the 2nd year we go, because someone we do business with buys a table and invites his customers. It's a lot of fun. So anyway, I went shopping AGAIN, and got a new dress AGAIN, and it's a bit of a departure for me, AGAIN. LOL! It's royal blue and somewhat form fitting. I'm pretty excited about it. I think it goes well with my red hair and blue eyes. The ladies working at the store, and my husband, agreed. I may even get brave enough to post pictures here...I haven't yet, but if I look nice enough the night of the dance, I may.
Tomorrow's the first day of Hoopnotica teacher training. YAY!

This weekend, I'll be spending 8 hours Saturday, and 8 hours Sunday, going through Hoopnotica's instructor training classes. I cannot wait! Really looking forward to this, even though I'm a little bit terrified. It's so cool, they sent me a hoopnotica travel hoop and case, and some hooping CDs and the manual for the class. I need to spend a little time going over the manual and some other info they emailed.
