Helen Keller

Helen Keller once wrote, "The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or touched... but are felt in the heart."

Amen, Helen Keller! - And thanks to Team True Beauty for sharing her brilliance tonight!  I was searching high and low to try to find a quote that could give weight to the way I've been feeling lately, and as if from nowhere... TTB tweets, to the rescue!

I have been feeling very fortunate lately... and very overwhelmed.  This week I started quite a few new endeavors, and it has been a very hectic 3 days!  Currently, I am working 4 different jobs, and my head has been spinning! Thank you, to the wonderful woman who created the day planner! (only a woman would know what I'm going through!) =)

Anyway, I know it has only been 3 days, but I've already found myself getting emotional in small moments of stress.  I didn't sleep the other night because I was so worried about cramming 3 jobs into that day!  What I've needed to do in those moments is remind myself of how lucky I am to have A job, let alone the 4 that I'm keeping.  Now I understand the lengths that some people go to to make end's meet.  It's crazy!!  Most of those people can't say that they are working a job they are passionate about... and I'm lucky there too.  Gymnastics has been in my life for nearly 21 years, and I feel so blessed to be able to share my love for the sport with others.

I was tired today, and in a short conversation managed to get upset and second guess myself.  Frustration is one of my biggest enemies... and sometimes it is hard for me to get past it.  Then 3 little girls walked into the gym for their first gymnastics class ever, and I was completely rejuvenated!  They were so full of excitement and wonder and I was instantly reminded of why I do what I do.  These six year-olds were able to instantly change my perspective.  I could feel their wonderment, and so much love for what I was doing.

Day 17: FEEL the beauty in life, don't just look for it.  You may find it in a place that you never expect!

Love True-
Allison
