A wise man once told me that we live two lives; the life we had before and the life we started living once we realized we only live once. I believe this to be true. In my previous life, I was stressed out, self absorbed, overworked, underpaid, addicted to caffeine and nicotine, and my entire world revolved around dance. My life didn’t revolve around anything that actually mattered. Now that I’ve had an awakening, my life is so much better. I no longer ignore my body when it tells me I need a break,I listen to my husband, I pay attention to things that matter, and surprise! My entire world doesn’t revolve around dance. Whew, feels good to say that out loud! Yes, my name is April and I am a former danceaholic. I still love dance and I always will, but it doesn’t consume my entire existence anymore. I make time for things that actually matter. I listen and communicate more effectively. I do things that I love to do, but I wasn’t making time for. I take the time to cook our meals instead of getting fast food. I spend quality time with my husband and our fur babies. I take the time to take care of my health. I meditate. I pray. I work on my relationship with God. I appreciate what I have and life is amazing!
