E x a m R e s u l t s ✨
Thank you so much for the high fives and congratulations from those of you who saw the results on my stories recently! I’m totally buzzing, haha!
These exams meant an awful lot to me, having learnt it while pregnant, and taking the exam 6 months after my C-section for baby Mag 🖤 It wasn’t easy, physically or emotionally, but it was a goal I really wanted to achieve! Thankfully I had the best cheerleading husband, the best Gremlins, and the best teachers who all got me to the finish line.
I would have been glad for just a solid pass. However, I actually achieved Distinctions (highest level awarded) for both my Ballet and Lyrical exams. Furthermore, my score of 92% earned a Platinum award for Lyrical!! Aaahhh! And this will make you sick - I was 1% away from getting the Platinum for my ballet too (I got 89%) 😂 Flippin heck!! .
I want to share that it’s great to have goals. And it’s great to achieve those goals! The hard work, the tears, the triumphs, made it all the more precious to me. And the people who travelled the journey with me are more precious to me now, too.
Also, if you let go of insecurities and do what you love, good things happen. When I walked into the exam, I couldn’t give the examiner excuses that I’d just had a baby, or I wasn’t back to strength yet, or tell her I was self conscious about my mummy tummy she could see in my leotard. I had to just turn up and dance like I loved it - because I do love it. And in the end I’ve received results that stand on their own merit. SO! If you have a goal, just go for it! 💪🏼
These pieces of paper and little golden badges are all squashed from my cuddling them and squealing!! And if you made it to the end of this LONG caption, you all deserve an award too 😂🏆 .
Thank you @dannywilliamsonbjj @embersdc
