Girl who dances in a cage

reminding myself

I got the following e-mail from one of my Wednesday afternoon students:

"Class was a blast and I can't wait until next week for the next one!"

This week is the very first week of the new 6-week session. The first week is the most exciting. The girls come into class excited and they leave even more excited. I'm working myself like crazy for this. I'm finding my limits and sometimes making little mistakes along the way. I often work from the moment I wake up until 9:00pm or so at night. But those girls make it all worth it. I don't even know anymore how I make them so comfortable and and send them home so excited. I've been doing it for so long now that I've lost sight of what the magic is. But it's working...and instead of shuffling paper in some office somewhere, I'm actually making a contribution in this world. I'm watching everyday women from every walk of life start to wake up inside and find an energy and sensuality that they never knew they had. I want to say that I'm watching women be transformed before my eyes, because that's how it feels. But I know I'm not really transforming them, I'm just guiding them to uncover and express something they had buried in them all along. I suppose I'm not really teaching, I'm just showing them how to unleash and free something that society makes them keep locked up. I love it. I forget that I love it sometimes because I'm working so hard that I often feel like I just need to stop and take a vacation. But the truth is, it feeds me, and I know that I am really blessed to be doing this.
