I know I have said it before but I love writing my updates each week. Sharing with you what I’m working on keeps me focused, on track but also allows me to be flexible in my approach to my journey. All of you have been so supportive along that way that it helps me to be honest with you and myself about where I am with my goals.
This week I am headed to the annual PMA conference. It is a Pilates Instructor gathering that I have been attending since 2009. It’s like a reunion for Pilates instructors. I get to hang out with some of my dearest friends. This years meeting has some key moments of celebration for some of the things I have been working towards.
- I wanted to live this year with a fierce and fabulous filter. I’m doing a lip sync battle on Friday. Something I would never have done before.
- I’m shooting for an article for a 2017 issue of Pilates Style. This has been a dream of mine since I became an instructor in 2008.
- A big announcement Friday that is in line with my goal of becoming more involved than I already am in the Pilates community.
- Spending more time IRL with friends.
Some more updates:
Financial: I got my numbers to my financial adviser. I also got honest with her about where I want my money to be invested and what’s most important today. I know I should be saving for my retirement but developing my businesses needs to be priority.
Health: I have released myself of a lot of stress in the last two weeks. Not that my job was stressful but I was carrying stress trying to do everything all at once with all of my efforts. I didn’t want to let anyone down. Now that I have let go of some of the plates I was spinning I am able to catch stress as it’s happening and release it. My stomach isn’t perfect but the less stress is helping.
Personal: I’ve been spending more time with my dogs and friends this last week and that has been incredible. I’m about to go on a hike as I write this. My yoga and Pilates practice all year have been so strong and consistent. I am super thankful LA has the weather it has so that I can make up for lost hikes!
Business: I’ve been focusing more on interacting with studios, magazines and instructors all over the world. 2017 is going to be a big travel year. That’s what I am manifesting anyways. But, one can manifest all day and nothing can happen. It’s about connecting and doing things today that will produce the travel of tomorrow!
I hope you have an amazing week xx~LL
