The thought never crossed my mind that one day I might actually be face to face with one of these elusive creatures…until today. As the storm outside blew in I struggled with the sliding doors to let a rain lashed lady in. Once her hair blew out of her face I couldn’t mistake those bangs and all black get up. Who else would wear all black in Mexico? Sadie Nardini, all smiles. Introductions were had and then the question…
Sadie, “Are you teaching tonight?”
“Yeah, for the last day of Bikini Boot Camp.”
“Awesome! Can I come to class?”
Cue me running away feeling like I want to vomit, explode, pee.
After about 5 minutes that feeling went away and was replaced by one of honor and gratitude. It’s less of a star-struck attitude and more of a deep sense of gratitude and thanks to those, unbeknownst to them, who have influenced me. It’s scary teaching those who have taught you most of what you know. I look at this as an opportunity to conquer another fear and grow as both student and teacher. Thank you universe.
Besides…what a fan-freaking-tastic way to end my stay here. Sadie has been an inspiration to my practice and my teaching. Tonight she flows with me and tomorrow I fly with her. I can’t wait!!!
