Why write a blog?


I've always been one of those people who has never really understood why anyone would want to write a blog or better yet why anyone else would want to read it, until now that is.

I''m a Registered Biokineticist (Physical Therapist as its called in other countries) with 15 years of othopaedic rehabilitation experience and I've been a Pilates instructor for 19 years. Yes, I'm totally giving away my age now, but I don't mind.

I have learnt so many things and if I can share some of these experiences, coupled with knowledge, maybe just maybe it will speak to 1 or 2 people, and they too will feel like they are not the only ones experiencing these things and that they are normal. What ever normal may be....


So this blog is essentially my personal journey through life.


As far back as I can remember I've always physically challenged my body through many different sports, but Ballet for me was the ultimate. It spoke to my soul, it still does. It was more than just physically demanding, it required more from you mentally. These foundations and discipline put me on the path of laying out my dreams and pushing until I achieved them, small or big.


Reaching my goals were never doubted from my side but they did take time and perseverance. People would ask me, "What do you want to be?" - I would set my goal and achieve

"What are you going to study?" - I would set my goal and achieve

"When are you getting Married?" - I would set my goal and achieve "When are you having children?" - I would set my goal and achieve

AND THEN...... The questions stopped..... what now?


I immersed myself so much in these "steps" of "achievement" that I lost myself along the way. I was setting the physical goals but loosing sight of who I was, who I am now.

I have the 2 most beautiful children and a loving husband and I don't feel the need to ...... achieve anymore to receive that affirmation that I sought so after.


I wish to share my experiences of fitness, wellness, womanly issues, and my thoughts on life in general. I hope it will spark an interest in some aspect of your life.
