Taking on Challenges 接受挑戰
Updated: Feb 25, 2019
What kind of new challenges are you working on?
In the past few weeks since I started the Katie Moves Taipei Newsletter, several people have asked me about my reasons behind putting this little passion project together. Foremost, I wanted to have a way to keep in better touch with my students. Because so much of our time together is spent dancing and singing along in class, I felt the desire to be able to share and connect in ways other than the smiles, hip shakes, and post-class photo ops.
On a personal level, I wanted to give myself a challenge. In keeping up with the newsletter, I knew I would have to set aside some time each week to reflect on the work I’m doing, get creative to make new dance routines, find new music, and spend time having my teacher ( Thanks 謝謝, Eve老師 <3) help me write the letter in Chinese (and subsequently hope my Chinese improves!). So far, the response from students has been really great. I appreciate everyone’s encouragement, the new students who have come to try classes, and everyone who has done the videos at home!
This week, I am taking on a new challenge. On Monday, I joined a “100 Days of Health” group on Facebook with some other ladies in Taipei. The purpose of the group is for members to set their own health goals and encourage one another in putting our personal plans into action over the next 100 days. My goals are to get more rest, do two kinds of exercise other than dance per week, as well as cook something healthy for myself at least two times a week. I’ll share some of my process and progress on FB and IG (@katiemovestaipei) if you want to follow along!
Do you have challenges or goals you are working on? Share them with me along with the hashtag #katiemovestaipei . We can cheer each other on!
Keep moving! xx, Katie
