An update. More posts to come?

Well here I am.. Over a year since my last post. I simply cannot/refuse to believe that this year is already in its 5th month. It's true that the older you get, the quicker time flys. I don't like it much.

2015 was one of the best years of my life. scrap that. The best year of my life so far. I'm not sure if I have people that even read these posts if I am honest.. If I ever did I am sure they are long gone by now. But I will use this blog as another form of a diary. Because looking back on one of my past post that was a rant from a long day now truly warms heart. Here's why.

Back in November 2014 I wrote a blog post after a very long day of dance auditions. This is the post which would lead the the most rewarding year of my life. That day I had an audition for Mamma Mia on one of Royal Caribbean ships- The Allure Of The Seas. Have a quick read through it if you want this post to make even more sense. Little did I know that 3 months later I would get an email telling me the news I had completely forgot to wait for. I got the job! I flew out just a month later to start rehearsals in Miami for the shows Mamma Mia and Blue Planet on THE BIGGEST SHIP IN THE WORLD as an Ensemble member, Dancer and an Aerialist.

I think I will do a few blog posts about being on the ship. Rather than trying to squeeze them in to one. I was away for 10 months after all!

Even if you have no interest in anything I have said so far (not sure you would still be reading tbh.) If you take away anything, take away this.

Everything happens for a reason. What was one of my most stressful days turned out to bring me the greatest year of my life. When I wanted to give up and go home, I didn't. I am not a religious person, though I respect each and every religion as it is. But I do believe in fate. This is some advice I need to take for myself actually.. After 5 months of unemployment there comes a point where you start to question everything you know shouldn't even be questioned. Is this really for me? What if it takes another 5 months? Will I last that long? But I cant turn back. I can't give up. I can't imagine looking back for the rest of my life thinking what if? What if I had tried that little bit harder. Stuck at it that little bit longer.... Giving up is never an option for me.

Do what you love and you will love to be you.

We got this.

Stay tuned for more posts from the unemployed dancer that has far too much time on her hands.
