A friend recently lent me Daring Greatly by Brené Brown. It’s not my usual sort of read, but I held scepticism at bay and began. Page 25 resonated almost immediately.
I turned 50 and my body started to rebel. Holding on is getting harder, but letting go? That’s not an option.
I have been exceptionally lucky in my life. I know this. Much of the time, I get to do what I want. I’m my own boss. I make decisions about what and how to do things, and although there are of course significant times of doubt, fear, frustration and panic, it’s not a bad position to be in. Most of the time.
Then some days I just don’t FEEL lucky!
Today I really want to talk about the HIDDEN costs of running aerial classes.
We have said goodbye to Battersea for another year.
I love this event. From a very personal viewpoint, it’s one that enables me to bring a fabulous team of experienced and novice circus folk together to share in our passion. Fun. Festive, educational, often upside-down, fun.
Thanks to all the organisers, funders, volunteers and of course my Airhedz team.
See you all down the road. Soon.
At Airhedz, we are fortunate to teach Aerial and Circus to a great mix of people, in a wide variety of places… even on a boat! We even persuade Steve onto a hoop every now and then!!
But today, sadly is our last day in Battersea Park. So, it’s time to hoop it up.
