I always had a passion for circus! But I ignored my circus passion for many decades - until I hit midlife and found myself stressed out, out of shape and bored of my routine. 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. I searched my soul, I searched my closets, and what did I find? My circus props! All my circus memories came flooding back 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!
We often hear people say I'm juggling so many responsibilities I can't keep up some days we need to recognize that it is too many balls were trying to keep in the air and to cut back slow down juggle one or two balls now and then take a breather get better at sat build your energy taking some time for a hobby like juggling has many benefits check out my benefits of juggling video!
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! I wanted to be a professional clown other days I wanted to be the trapeze artist, then I'd spend hours practicing 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".
