Pole Struggles: Finding Inspiration and Motivation

So, here's the deal: I woke up today feeling completely unmotivated to pole. I know, I know, it happens to the best of us. But the thing is, pole is my happy place. It's my stress reliever, my confidence booster, my escape from reality. So, what gives? Well, for starters, my usual playlist is feeling a bit stale. It's the same songs over and over again, and I need something fresh and exciting to get me in the mood. But where do I even begin? Do I scour Spotify for hours on end? Do I ask my friends for recommendations? Do I just hit shuffle and hope for the best? And then there's the issue of trying new moves. Don't get me wrong, I love a good challenge. But sometimes, the moves I want to try require a level of flexibility that I simply do not possess. I mean, I'm not a contortionist, people! But at the same time, I don't want to give up on my goals. So, what do I do? Well, here's what I've decided: I'm going to give myself 15 minutes to wallow in self-pity. That's right, just 15 minutes to complain, whine, and feel sorry for myself. And then, after that, I'm going to take action. I'll spend another 15 minutes searching for new music, trying out different genres and artists until I find something that speaks to me. And then, finally, I'll spend the last 15 minutes practicing a new move or combination, even if it's not perfect. I know, I know, it sounds crazy. But sometimes, putting a limit on your negativity can actually be a good thing. It forces you to take action, to make a change, and to get your butt in gear. And who knows, maybe in those 15 minutes, I'll stumble upon a new song that I can't stop dancing to, or a move that I never thought I'd be able to do. So, here's to the 15-minute challenge. Let's make it happen, folks. And if all else fails, there's always wine. Cheers to that.
