It's never too late to pursue your dreams!!!

As a little girl, I always liked to follow Olympic sports on TV. Figure skating and Gymnastics where my favorite disciplines.

What I liked most about Figure skating& Gymnastics were those fancy pirouettes, splits, and all acrobatic movements. It always looks so gracefulness and effortless when somebody is doing it! 
It's absolutely amazing how you can train your body! 

In my family home we have tiles on the hallway , and I used to slide on the tiles surface in my socks pretending I'm a figure skater. Once even I hurt my chin while doing pirouettes and to this day I have a small scar. That's how my career as figure skater started! Haha!
As a teenager I tried real ice skating and I need to say, I was doing really well. Few times I participated in inter-school competitions!
I guess practising on the tiles helped me a lot :D

Generally I always liked to be active. That's why I became a fitness instructor. 
For me there is nothing better in the world then to be able to do cartwheel and handstand! :) 

Few times I was thinking to join a gymnastic club, but that pessimistic voice in my head  ( yes, I hear voices! haha ) says: 
"Don't be silly, you are too old for this! You are not flexible enough. Why you want to do that? You might break your neck or leg or something else. It's better to stay at home. Beside it's too far. You will never become a gymnast anyway ,so don't waist your time! 

Sounds familiar?

Now I know it's just a bullshit story that I was telling myself over and over again. Why? Because I wasn't brave enough to give it a go. But if not now, then when?!  Life is too short!!  And I would much rather try and fail then regret not trying at all!

Last Friday I went for my first class and I got hooked straight away! 
We where doing flips, cartwheels and practising somersault and many more acrobatic movements! Wow! It was so tough and challenging but I knew I was born for this! 
I can't even express how happy and proud of myself I am :D It was hard to ignore that nasty dark voice in my head but I did it! I put myself , my happiness and my dreams on the first place.


Are you brave enough to chase your dreams?

  1. Jeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeej! Thats absolutely brilliant! :) I remember.... It took me a couple of years till I started dance classes here in Ireland. I thought I was not good enough but I ended up being one of the best and found a couple of great friends! About the dreams..... I am trying to follow them everyday... even if I have to admit... that some of them stay kept hidden... :)

A year from today

Hello! Anybody here? It's been a while, right? Not sure if blogging in still trendy, but that doesn't matter one bit! Because today is the day! I will call that new series " A year from today ".
Exactly one year ago I started my maternity leave and I don't need to tell you how my life is different now from that life I used to live before I've become a mom. But it won't be about what was before, but rather it's gonna be about what's ahead of me. How my life can change in a year from today? Let's see! 
So make yourself a nice cup of tea, sit down and be the witness of my journey.

Life keeps me entertained. But the quest for a dream job is still on.
I've destroyed my old journals today. Deliberately. And I feel lighter by 5 years.

I sit on the sunbed, one I bought 2 years ago and I listen to the sound of the ocean. It feels like we have never left this place. Just our apartment is better. We swapped bin view (#budgettravel ) for the ocean view (#bigspenders ).  And Canarian Princess is now with us. Finally at home. ;)
We wander around the streets and refresh our memories about things we have done and food we have eaten during the time we lived here. And we are doing so well with our Spanglish!
