Perspective

I had a conversation with a dear friend of mine that started with informing her of the success of the harder shanks in the pointe shoes. And honestly, now I have a seemingly new-found perspective, as well as a figurative weight off my shoulders. Which is silly, because I kinda knew all this before. It…

A post.

I’ve toyed around with the idea of even posting this post. Part of me feels like it’s pointless since what I really feel and want to say isn’t something I should put onto such a public platform, even though it’s something I’m very passionate about. Sometimes you just have to keep your mouth shut, sit…

Content.

Last night, I was thinking. About tomorrow. About what may or may not happen. I thought about how I didn’t want to think about this. How it makes me so anxious I end up sick. How it’s completely out of my hands. I prayed. Talked to God like old friends. My prayers are rarely, “Dear…

Thoughts and feels lately

I’ve been rather contemplative lately, in a funk of sorts. This tends to be when I get reflective and such, which has only been heightened by the excitement of a domain name, instagram account, facebook page, and everything else that has come about with the blog actually being a .com.

Lovely Things

Just a post of some things that have happened this week that I want to remember. Sitting on the floor trying to untangle my yarn to continue to crochet. One of the younger dancers strikes an interest. I show her the stitch and she picks it up immediately Another younger dancer tells me she’s good…

Epiphany about previous post.

While sorting through pictures and talking to one of my dance friends, Annika, I think I have come to at least a partial conclusion as to why I seem to have this mindset about my dancing ability. When I danced as a kid, my parents always came.They’d sit through the recital, they’d bring flowers, they’d…

Your happiness is yours.

“Are you still on that high?”My teacher asked me when she saw me today.I simply said, “Mostly!” to avoid bringing up the thing that had wavered the high slightly.I knew she knew. I don’t know if she knew I knew.Regardless, everyone within earshot had no business knowing, so I played it off. For some reason,…
