Is it spring? I hadn’t noticed 🙂

Well, hasn’t that been a strange few weeks? Storms, Yellow warnings….snow?!

I don’t know about you guys, but I don’t know whether I’m coming or going this past couple of weeks! Sunglasses in one hand, brolly in the other. And the biggest scarf I can find, wrapped around my neck at all times!

So, as my adventure with DWTS comes to an end, I am starting to see what the city actually looks like in the middle of the day! And I love it.

Am I sad to leave the competition behind? Of course! I have had the most amazing time over the past few months. Most of you that have been following my journey know that it has been tough work, early mornings, late nights and some very bruised parts of my body that I hadn’t seen in about 10 years!

But it has also given me new energy, a new sense of perspective and a renewed vigor for life! Too much?!! 🙂

Seriously, this competition has taught me so many things and opened my eyes in so many ways that I am honestly so grateful to have been a part of it. It has taught me that the important things in life – is really the stuff you knew all along.

Because, i now realise more than ever before, that it’s about looking after yourself (physically and emotionally), being kind to yourself, being grateful for your family and about knowing who your true and real friends are.

It’s about appreciating those ‘high’ moments, knowing that they will probably be short lived, but enjoying them fully while they last.

It’s about seeing that look of pride on your kids faces when you know that you have done something that they never knew their mammy could do. It’s about off loading at the end of a particularly tough day and knowing that the person listening is listening with love.

But mostly, it’s about always taking time to appreciate all the great things you have achieved and knowing that there is plenty more to come. And never, ever giving up. 🙂

Here’s to the next adventure.
