I cannot believe that JMP is one year old today. There are no words for how touched and honoured I am to have been able to go on this incredible journey with all of you (but I will do my best here in the blog).
For most of my life, I have felt compelled to share my love of fitness, health and dance with those around me. There is something so innately satisfying about sharing your passions with others, and to be able to do this in a space that has been selected and curated by oneself is truly a blessing.
Two years ago, this was my biggest dream and when it came true a year ago, I never imagined that I would be given so much by all of the incredible clients who have passed through the doors. Without sounding hyperbolic, each day feels a bit like a miracle and I often have to step back and “take it in” so to speak.
As we move through each day, class-by-class, I think it is fair to say that we all learn and grow on many levels. As a teacher, I am challenged by my amazing students. As a business owner, I learn a great deal from the often unexpected (but inevitable) challenges one faces when taking their first steps as an entrepreneur. I also learn from all of you. The fact that you take the time to read my blogs, provide feedback and share your ideas, desires and goals with me not only means a great deal to me, but helps me to grow into what (I hope) will be the best version of myself.
Today, I want to thank you all for your amazing support, encouragement and generosity of time in this journey. I also want to remind all of you to stay the course in spite of those moments when it seems giving up is the wisest option. Goals can be achieved and dreams do come true. You have been such an important part in proving this to me and I would be delighted to return the favour.
