So I got knocked back from a job interview yesterday and to be honest I was exceptionally disappointed. So much so I could barely keep the tears from rolling down my cheeks as I took the 'it's a no from me' call while I paid for my groceries. The check-out lady must've thought I was a right card! It seemed like the ideal job opportunity you see. In my local community, in a nurturing and creative school and full of promise.
On returning home I threw on my pajamas and sank into bed. I allowed myself a couple of hours of feeling glum, mindlessly surfing social media and prying into other peoples successes. In this time I must have bumped into at least ten Hooplovers posts and emails. Suddenly, it came to me. I sat up, pushed my duvet away and thought 'may be this is a sign'. I've toyed with the idea of joining the Hooplovers coaching course for probably a year now and last night I felt a strong intuitive urge to just go for it. To dive in. To share my passion and kick some hoop dance ass!
Today, it has occurred to me that I what I am doing is taking back my power. If someone else doesn't want to invest in me then I need to invest in myself. I already feel like this was a defining decision well made. I am both pumped and nervous about doing something out of my comfort zone. But hey, nothing came from sitting about waiting for life to get it's funk on, did it?
This is a blog charting my transformation from a primary school Learning Mentor with a few too many hoops to a confident, inspiring and abundant hoop dance teacher with a song her heart and a spin in her step. Bring on Hooplovers coaching 2016!
