I will always dance.
As I work on my feet and prepare them for pointe shoes I remember exactly how hard it was to be focused on what I love.
First of all it’s painful. I screamed repeatedly the first day back on my toes. You would have thought that someone had taken a hammer to my toes. Literally.
Oh don’t forget the foot cramps. I get a cramp thinking about the cramps.
I’m more focused when I know the end result will be something that makes me smile everyday. Dance makes me smile from the inside out. Yoga brings me peace and dance gives me light at the end of the tunnel.
I’m thankful that I was made with the spirit to endure whatever the universe throws at me. As long as the melody sends me fluttering across the sky I’ll be just fine.
Pick a hobby, listening to a song, play a video game. Just take time to do something you enjoy. Have the best life of your life. This way when you realize there’s no more pain you know you have arrived.
Happy Monday ✨
