19th Day of Thankful

Today I am thankful for chances. I went to Zumba tonight and the instructor mentioned that she was looking for subs a couple of nights in December. 

All during class I debated mentioning that I am a licensed Zumba instructor. It's no secret that I love Zumba, but getting up in front of a group of people makes me want to curl into a ball, cry, and hope that clicking my heels will eventually take me home. But one of my goals was to teach a Zumba class before the end of the year. 

So  I did it. I offered to sub for her and she accepted. I'm terrified but excited and hope that I can make it through the class without throwing up - because how awful would THAT be? (Pretty awful!) So here goes nothing. Or something. Or everything.

I'm proud of you Brooke! I know how you feel girl, I felt that way when Brenda asked if I would consider subbing for her. I always laughed, pushed it off, but I knew if she needed me - I would do it for her. And what do you know, she needed me! I stepped up, felt like puking, but carried on, it went well, I got a standing ovation when it was over, and a sense of accomplishment.
I believe in you girl, you will do fantastic.

Thanks, sweetpea! I'm going to take a few deep breaths, go to my mental happy place, and make it happen!
