I started this blog about five years ago, shortly after beginning ballet classes as an adult beginner.
It’s mind blowing to think of how much life has changed since then, even though it really doesn’t feel like it’s changed much at all.
I’ve grown. I’ve learned.
I’ve began accepting this life that is mine, even in all of its messiness and uncertainties.
I’m not perfect. I never will be. I don’t want to be. I want to take these lessons I’m learning, this life I’m living and all it throws at me, and make something of it. I want to “live my life to show others it’s possible” even if I don’t know how I’ll really do that, or if I ever will.
Along this road, I’ve met some pretty cool people. One of them is my friend Annabelle, who introduced me to Live A Great Story, an organization that encourages and helps empower you to do just that. To live your story and make it a great one.
I applied to be an ambassador, and found out today that I was accepted! I’m really excited to get to know the other incredible people that were accepted into the fold, and to find out more of myself and my story and what it means to me, as well as what it could mean to the world.
I encourage you all to do the same. To look at your life in all it’s seeming simplicity and realize the power you do hold to make a difference.
Improve yourself. Change your world. Let that change affect those around you for the better, and watch as it in turn changes the world.
Started ballet late October of 2011 at the age of 23.
Began pointe training late August of 2013.
