Thankful for Pilates
This Thanksgiving, I say my great thanks to Pilates. How fortunate I am to spend my life teaching Pilates! It’s remarkable, really.
How fortunate I am that I pursue my passion everyday. You’re lucky, too!
What we do is truly challenging. More than most people know. But we know it. Still, we are truly fortunate.
We spend our lives doing something so very luxurious. Training other people in this incredible method. And most of us teach people who are financially fortunate. It’s a true luxury.
Pursuing your passion is a gift. Most of the people around you don’t pursue their passions. And I won’t speak for you, but I will speak for myself: Pilates is my great passion. I never take it for granted and I do treasure every hour that I teach. I even treasure the administrative work.
Not everyone knows his/her passion. Not everyone knows how to seek it out. Perhaps Pilates is not your passion, but maybe it will lead you to whatever is.
If Pilates is your passion, then I implore you to remind yourself on a daily basis how special it is. You are probably working in a high-rent district, with very wealthy clients. You probably don’t have to work very many hours a week. Your hourly wage that you sometimes complain about is far higher than the minimum-wage; it’s far higher than the hourly temp-wage you used to work for. Take a moment today to remember why you became a Pilates teacher. Take a moment to be thankful that you were able to pursue it. Even if this is not your be-all-end-all job…it’s a pretty great one!Thank you for reading my blog! Let me know if there is something specific about Pilates that you would like me to write about…and I will! I’ll post a new blog in a couple of days!
