why I've decided to give up dancng
I decided to give up dancing, and this is why:
While many people are aware of the law of attraction, most only pay attention to the first principle, that like attracts like, and forget the second principle, which states that nature abhors a vacuum. This means that in order to attract the good in your life that you desire, you must first make room for it, by giving up anything taking its place. You must release anything that no longer serves you, both in the physical world, as well as in your mind.
This principle is always at work, and you can get it to work in your favour. To do so you must be perfectly clear about what it is you desire, and then examine what it is you need to get rid of. For me, that means admitting I want to enjoy large profits off my musical talents, and to cultivate a fulfilling romantic relationship with a single person. With these goals in mind, it’s becoming apparent that it’s time to give up dancing.

That’s not to say that it’s impossible to have a healthy relationship while working a job like this, but when I think about being with my dream lover, it just doesn't add up for me.
My choice to leave is in no way a condemnation of the work, in fact I have enjoyed great benefits from it, but something that can be empowering at one moment, can also be impeding in another.
Working in adult entertainment has had a positive impact on my life in many ways. When I started, I was in university, but had only completed high school. Aside from welfare, I had no financial support, and mounds of student debt. It got to a point where I had, $12 cash, and my son and I were eating Kraft dinner and tuna for a week straight. That’s when I made the commitment that I would never let my family be in a situation like that again. At the time, the idea that I could earn a livable wage, and be rewarded for my looks became particularly attractive. Since then, I have been able get off welfare, pay off all my loans, get myself a car and a house, as well as invest in my music career.
Aside from the financial aspect, dancing has granted me with a lot of other skills. I have conquered my social anxiety, allowing me to talk to just about anybody. I have become an expert in sales, which is a key ingredient when seeking financial success. I have met so many amazing people along the way that have become friends, and mentors, and I’ve created valuable, yet unlikely connections. I have become a master at enchanting a crowd during musical performances, because I used every stage show as a platform to develop my presence.
It has been so much fun, but I feel like I have gotten just about all I can from working as a dancer. While I gained many skills on the job, it’s a labour job that requires a lot of time. I’d like to focus my time and attention on my music and art so that I can earn more money passively.
In addition to time, dancing also costs a lot of physical and emotional energy. In the past, as a single woman, it was easy entertain my customers, but the kind of marriage I envision for myself simply does not allow for that. I recently learned that it actually makes my stomach turn to allow caressing and intimate embraces from others, while being in a state of arousal caused by someone I love.
I have made the firm decision that I’m ready to move on to the next chapter the financial and romantic areas of my life, so it's time to leave dancing behind so that I can focus on what’s next.
