Many times in life, the small, seemingly insignificant moments can offer us unprecedented awareness.  My epiphany came six years ago when, as a wife and mother of three small children, I was searching for an exercise routine that would keep me challenged and engaged. I had tried several local gyms and fitness classes, but none of them seemed to be the right fit.  I found myself becoming bored with the same predictable expectations-not just from the exercises, but from myself as well.

Then, one day, quite by accident, I came across an ad for something called "pole fitness".  Like most people, I almost immediately dismissed it; after all, I was 38, not in the greatest shape, had absolutely no dance background, and was afraid of heights. I allowed myself a moment to consider the intriguing prospect.  Then, I did what most people do-I returned to my old, comfortable routine. The idea, however, became a tiny, quiet voice in my head.  Could I do it?  Could I ever have the confidence to be one of those women who threw caution to the wind?

A few weeks later, when another ad for pole fitness classes came across my computer screen, I decided to take a chance.  I apprehensively took my first class.  From that moment on, I was absolutely hooked. Thus began my journey-a journey of self-discovery, sensuality, dance, strength, courage and exploration. Pole strengthened my mind, my body, and my spirit. I have done many challenging things in my life; after all, I had a previous career in law enforcement.  I was also familiar with the rigors of raising three young children...but this challenge was different.   It pushed me on a personal, introspective level.  Each minor achievement was so incredibly rewarding that I couldn't wait for each class.

This experience was about me helping myself to become better.  It wasn't dependent on a supervisor's assessment, or on another's satisfaction. It was about allowing myself time without apologizing for it. It's not selfish and it's not trivial, though we sometimes allow ourselves to believe that.  I've learned that a better me means I can emotionally and physically be a better wife, mother, caretaker and person. Many years later, my love for pole is just as great as my first day, and I am grateful to be able to help other women begin their journey.
