Ok. So if you really know me, you may be confused by this ^ ... and that's ok. Actually, that's perfect because I'd love to share this story with you... One of the most difficult questions I get asked probably every single week of the year (literally) is, "So, what are you doing now / where are you living?" Most of the time, my answer is, "Well, that depends on what day of the week it is lol because I consider my suitcase home." I don't say that because I think I'm super successful and always working. As a matter of fact, I travel for fun, visits and occasions that have nothing to do with work. Probably just as much as I do FOR work. So it's safe to say that I'm on the go for majority of the days in a year.
Some of you may think that's amazing, luxurious or even the coolest job in the world. I completely agree. SOMETIMES it is luxurious and most the time it is amazing. I definitely think it's the coolest job in the world. (I may be a little biased) but what I didn't anticipate this career being is lonely. Which is so weird to me because I'm literally surrounded by cool people, all over the world, CONSTANTLY. That can even speak the same language as me. Dance.
Don't get me wrong. I LOVE what I do and all the people I get to do it with. It's just that, after time it can get hard walking into a special environment and saying hello knowing that in a few short days, there will be a goodbye.
For the past 6 years, this has become more and more of a lifestyle for me and I have been really trying to come to terms with the fact that it's not going to change. I don't want it to. It can't. It's my path that I chose and I'm so glad I did.
So this past year I have gone through it a bit. (Even though it's Instagram and we are all suppose to make ourselves look like we are doing just fine 😜) I'll say it and won't be embarrassed by it. There was, as usual, a lot of traveling, family losses, a breakup, close friends moving away and then some. We all have our problems, I totally get that. But what I did not understand was that I didn't have to go through it alone.
Wow, this is so long, I'm sorry but I ran out of room and I'm not done! LOL NEXT POST ---->
