Dear Bellydance Community, 

Today is a day I would never have anticipated. If someone had asked me three months ago what my day would be like today, my answer would not have been anything I could have predicted. I know I would have wanted to project something positive because I feel that's one of the choices I want to make all the time. The more I think about it, I can say that I am following that path. I still have choices to make. It is up to me. I am okay. The things I have to choose from are different, and making those choices has taken me in a different direction of growth in many areas spiritually, personally and technologically. 

Having more time to be with myself than ever before allowed me to really understand the value of being alone and also of being with people that I love. Both of them are important. When we are on a really busy schedule without taking a breath, the things that we personally need get neglected. I would say that having the situation we are in with the pandemic has created space for us to take a breath. 

It is interesting that life still goes on, but differently. The adjustments people have made quite frankly seem amazing, teaching every one of us really for the first time to understand how we all feel as a collective. We are in this together. I know without a doubt that each and every one of you are capable, smart, creative, and all-around fantastic, which are all the skills you need to have a beautiful day, week and life. 

Sending you the biggest warmest virtual hug filled with love,
