Career goal = met!

Through my four-year dance career, my main goal was to attain my solo dress and, therefore, make it to Prizewinner. Two competitions ago, my teacher allowed me to get my solo dress and while that was exciting, I felt like it was kind of a "given" since I'm retiring at the end of this summer. So I got my dress last week (which I absolutely love and couldn't be happier with), and attended a Feis this past weekend. At this feis, I got a first in both my Novice hornpipe and reel, which now only leaves my slip jig in novice. I have one more feis before I retire and I'm so thrilled that I not only reached the goal but I can live it out as well.

I've been wondering if this was really my time to retire, since I feel so at home with it. But now that I've reached my goal I really feel it's right and I'm more "at peace" with the idea of leaving this great part of my life. I just wanted to share this with all of you, because I knew you'd understand :)
