Let it all go

In March, I went on vacation with my beau to Arizona. Towards the end of the trip, we were notified that a close family member was gravely ill. We were instantly in a state of constant worry and it became worse when this family member passed away a few short weeks later.

I took time away from everything to be with my loved ones and of course, I also stopped pole dancing for a while. Some time after the funeral, I visited a close pole friend and we danced together. And it did SO much to ease my pain even if only for a moment. I’ll never forget the feeling of elation and happiness I felt from it.

Dance, in any form, can be so healing. When there are leftover feelings of grief, sadness or stress that we just can’t express with words, you can just dance until it’s all gone.

I’m grateful that pole dance brought that opportunity into my life. Simply just to heal and feel whole again.

  1. True, true, and true.
    There are sometimes on pole day when I think to myself “I don’t wanna get out today… I want to crawl under the covers and stay there…” but ultimately I always decide to go to pole class anyway, because its so refreshing and all around healing that it’s incredible. ♥

  2. This is one of the reasons why I love pole fitness so much, I can forget about everything in my world for an hour and come back refreshed and relaxed.
