In this week’s edition of Tranquility du Jour, I share my nine-month journey back to the ballet stage after a hip replacement. You’ll learn the challenges, joys, time commitments, and resources involved in pursing this passion. I invite listeners to reconnect with their own passions, offer a four-step plan to purse a dream, and provide journaling prompts for reflection.

Download this worksheet to take notes and reflect on journal prompts below.
