I always had a passion for circus! But I ignored my circus passion for many decades - until I hit midlife! BLAH! I was overdone, stressed out, out of shape and just didn't want to live like that anymore. So I talked to a life design coach and was told to look back at my childhood for a passion to help ignite a spark in me now. I searched my soul, I searched my closets, and what did I find? My circus props! All my circus memories came flooding back to me and instantly started to cheer me up! I realized right then that I needed more circus in my life. So I set out over the last year to find ways to put more circus into my life and to make everyday a circus day!
Now I want to share my circus power story with the world and maybe bring you a few laughs! So sit back, relax and enjoy the lessons I learned during my year in search of Circus!
We often hear people say I'm juggling too many responsibilities and can't keep up! The Lesson I learned was to juggle only what I can handle that day. I learned other lessons by learning to juggle and chasing those balls around has kept me in shape!
The first thing I set out to do when I was looking for more way to bring circus in my life was attend a circus weekend at the New England Center for the Circus Arts in nearby Vermont It was a wild weekend of trapeze, hula hooping and swinging with my husband! I got to experience a childhood dream of mine to fly on the trapeze and realized it's never too late to achieve your dreams!
I've wanted to be every type of circus performer! Some days, I wanted to be a professional clown, other days I wanted to be the trapeze artist, then I'd go off and spend hours juggling. I never had the discipline or the desire to really give all that it takes to succeed in the circus. But the one skill I learned as a kid, that I practiced for hours everyday and carried with me throughout my life is how to "Style".
