Disappointment or fate?

Thursday, March 14, 2013

Well the meeting yesterday at the Australian Institute of Fitness went GREAT until he gave me the pricing :( Right at this moment I am afraid we do not have $7,000 for me to take a 14 week course that won't allow me to work at the same time. Very disappointing..but in some ways maybe it is fate...I have been wanting to do this for a very long time and my husband was all for it...but we are paying off our trip to America as well as the wedding, and the reception we are having this weekend and our honeymoon trip next weekend...plus we have teenage twin sons that will be looking into Uni soon...so maybe fate is just telling me it is best to put it off right now. We don't want to get into debt..we want our dream home at the beach..I need to work now and start saving for those dreams...
When it comes to being an instructor again, that is still a possibility but I don't think Step is in my future...I quit teaching it in the past due to the pain I was having in my knees (which is ironic as Step was actually created by a woman who was told by her doctor to step up and down on a platform or something as part of her therapy for a knee injury-alas she was also an "aerobic" instructor and turned it into the huge craze it became in the late 80's)...but back to me...my knee's and calves suffered from teaching it and since I had also started training for a half marathon I knew something had to go..so it was step...after teaching Tuesday night I was not able to walk the next day without pain, and I am still not able to run...it is Friday..it is not worth it to me..if I can teach other classes then by all means I will ..but no more step (after my commitment to sub one more class)
I did meet with an awesome gym the other day who are very excited to have me join their team but there are some logistics I have to take care of first as far as Australia rules go and it may take a little longer than I hoped but it is more feasible than the $7000 fee for school.
So today, or maybe Monday (busy weekend ahead for the reception) I will start a generic job search to see what I can do for some money for right now..my dream job will just have to be put on hold..but I am ok with that as I know if it is meant to be we will find a way..and in the meantime I can continue with my own workouts and training with my hubby for our half marathon.

    If you can go to Australia and meet a guy you met on the internet and end up marrying him & live there now- you will get to do your dream job one day! emoticon emoticon
I know when we knew we wanted to move to FL-it took planning and had to work things out about money, selling the house, etc and it took 7 years...but we made it happen! Just set your mind to it and make the magic happen! One day, one goal, one step at a time! Have a great reception and honeymoon weekend!!! emoticon

    My dad always said, “Things always work out for the best”! Whenever we had a disappointment he would always say that and I always think of that. And you know what? He was pretty spot on!
When one door closes another opens.
You have so much to look forward to. Enjoy this wonderful time in your life!

    I'm sure something will work out, too bad it is so much money. I hope the half marathon training is going well. Any news on the entry? I was thinking of emailing this weekend if I get round to it!

    Sometimes you have to take it on faith that the thing you thought you wanted didn't work out BECAUSE there is something better out there that's meant to be. Keep your eyes, ears and heart open, and you'll find it. Good luck!

    maybe things will work out another time in another way. I'll keep my fingers crossed for you.

    I am a big believer in timing and "everything happens for a reason." Gotta listen to your gut. Save up:)
