_w_a_v_e_r_l_y_ Tomorrow night I fly back to the states. It is bittersweet. My time here in Ecuador has been more than I ever could have imagined. Not only did I get to travel to a beautiful country, but I made some incredible friends. To say I am lucky is an understatement. I will be forever grateful to Meche (@mmhphoto) and Gaby (@gtalebaerial) for making this all happen. Sincere thanks to Gaby, Meche, and all the fantastic #aerialists I had the privilege of working with here in #Guayaquil. @vertigo.ec was a success, and I look forward to seeing this aerial and pole event grow. @aerialsilksecuador, thank you!!! So much love and success to you. ๐ŸŒž If you are in this photo, please let me know so I can tag you!

_w_a_v_e_r_l_y_ I'm having the absolute time of my life in #Guayaquil, #Ecuador!! I was invited down to judge Ecuador's first aerial and pole dance competition. I'm also teaching workshops while I'm here. I can't thank @mmhphoto, @gtalebaerial, and @aerialsilksecuador enough for having me be a part of @vertigo.ec. I am forever grateful for this amazing adventure. @majitogomezch, thank you so much for letting us play in your studio!!

_w_a_v_e_r_l_y_ Beyond excited! I'll be heading to Ecuador in less than two weeks to teach, judge, and possibly perform (shoulder permitting) at Ecuador's very first #Aerial and #Pole competition. If you are in Ecuador, or close by, be sure to sign up for one or all of my workshops! I cannot wait to meet all of you at @aerialsilksecuador and @vertigo.ec! @gtalebaerial, thank you so much for this absolutely incredible opportunity.

_w_a_v_e_r_l_y_ He totally had it.
Monday night at rehearsal, I fell out of this move ("flip-flops"). I also fell out of a move we call "shin-to-shin," where I slip between my partner's legs from seated into a locked double shin-to-shin hang. I felt defeated. I wanted to give up #doublestrapeze. I cried and questioned myself, doubted my abilities and worth as an #aerialist. Maybe I was a little overly emotional, but it killed my spirits (and I almost got seriously injured, luckily I have trained spotters). My mood shattered my focus, and instead of concentrating on the task at hand, I simply tried to do the skills without thinking about what the execution would physically need from me. I took last night off, and started off my night tonight with a pep-talk from one of my main coaches. Here are the videos from tonight. Tonight was my best night yet. I'm sharing this because I want you to know that we all will feel defeated, we all will feel like we suck, we all will feel disappointed with ourselves. Living is getting back up and believing in yourself, over and over and over. Don't give up.

_w_a_v_e_r_l_y_ Tonight's rehearsals went great. I am truly blessed to do this art with such a wonderful crew. In the NYE show I will be doing doubles trapeze, aerial silks, and #Spanishweb. Looking forward to bringing in the New Year doing what I love the most. I give thanks daily for this life. Huge thanks to @fabletics for keeping me warm on a freezing stage!

_w_a_v_e_r_l_y_ Unique photo shoots are one of my favorite things about being an #aerialartist. Huge thanks, @emmamasseyphoto, for creating such visually stunning photos from our #PisgahForest shoot. Looking forward to working with you again some day. ๐ŸŒฒ

_w_a_v_e_r_l_y_ In a perfect world, this routine would be to #WuTangClan. Honestly can't complain as it's choreographed to a #PeterGabriel song... We just didn't run it with music tonight. It's coming together!
