This year’s International Dance Day landed on a Monday when I only teach STRONG by Zumba and not Zumba.  So with the new #ZumbaBreaks campaign, I decided to do just that… break into a Zumba song in the middle of their workout!  They had no idea so it was a surprise.

Mind you, I have learned that those who love STRONG by Zumba are not fond of Zumba.  They are not dance lovers, but more HIIT lovers (High Intensity Interval Training) so you can only imagine what they felt when they heard that we were going to dance. I’m sure some wanted to kill me… but one song won’t kill them!

Thanks everyone for being such great sports. ❤️

 

✨The most magnificent experience I ever had, where instead of making a wish, I prayed… and as soon as we continued our hike down the mountain, a rainbow appeared in the middle of the sacred valley. Coincidence? Maybe… but for me, it was a response and a sign from above. 🌈

Have you ever experience something similar?  Comment below and share your story!  I would love to hear it ☺️

 

When I look back at all the amazing stuff that has happened in 2018, it reminds me how much I have grown since I started working on my own.  I remember I was scared, timid, shy, afraid of failing, and just about every insecure feeling you could think of.  But something told me to do it, to keep going and don’t stop.  I prayed a lot and learned to walk blindly in faith and believing that everything was going to be ok.  And it was ok.

Now, I’m the opposite.  I’ve grown to be confident, smarter, stronger, more assertive and everything I only dreamed about when I was a child.  Ask me to speak in front of a crowded room of strangers and I have no fear.  I know what I like, what I don’t like, what is right for me and what is wrong.  And when in doubt, I pray and ask for guidance and put it in God’s hands.  I ultimately learned to let go and let God.

2018… thanks for all the memories.  2019… I’m ready!
