I have just finished the June Calendar for the studio and it hit me that my two year anniversary is coming up.
Where did the time go? It seems like it was just yesterday that I began my journey. So many people have helped me with this dream. I am grateful for each and everyone of them.
This will be my third summer and my second year. I quit my day job June 10th of last year (2016) dedicating myself fully to the studio. The BEST thing I have ever done! (well one of many, lol)
To finish from my last blog, I planned on leaving my day job on my anniversary date, June 13. As life had it I moved it up a few days to not mare that date with my leaving. With many other reasons in leaving, I walked out and never looked back. I had all of my former coworkers support.
Sometimes we just need to take leaps of faith. Blind faith.
As I look at my schedule now and all of the great classes and students I couldn't be happier in our growth as a yoga community. We have raised donations for the Chesterfield County Animal Shelter, donated food to the Chesterfield County Food Bank, donated time in teaching at the Chesterfield County Women's Diversion & Detention Center, teaching at the Shepherd's Center, donated teacher time (karma classes in which the teacher does not get paid) to the community through the studio, raised supplies for school teachers, glow stick yoga classes and more. I didn't envision so much in such a short period of time and I am so happy to have these experiences.
A HUGE thank you to Nancy New who from beyond day one has been by my side in teaching at the studio and donated her time in teaching some of those workshops. She brings passion to her yoga classes and loves to teach yoga. I am so lucky to have met her many moons ago.
I'm not sure how I am going to celebrate this grand event of two years . Maybe a late celebration in July or August but for certain I will celebrate on June 13 within. I can't even begin to explain how amazing this experience has been for me.
Thank you ALL for your support. _/\_
Time does fly by.
