What's it all about, anyway?

Right now, I'm preparing to take the STOTT Pilates training and certification.

I've been teaching Pilates for a little over a year now, loving it, and feel ready to make a bigger commitment and take my training to the next level.

The training is pretty intense. And expensive.

I've been studying like crazy and the classes haven't even started yet.

I hope to be finished by the end of the summer.

Sometimes I look down at my spread of textbooks, flashcards, and anatomy diagrams and ask myself, Melissa, for Pete's sake, what are you doing? 

Am I crazy?

I have a great job as a nurse, why am I chasing this Pilates thing? Why am I already planning on a certification in Yoga next year?


Why? Because for some reason I think that's what life's all about.

Chasing what you love.

Even if sometimes I look around and get cold feet.

Anyone else chasing a dream out there?
