"While I dance I can not judge, I can not hate, I can not separate myself from life. I can only be.
I feel like dance is something I had and then lost. Every single time I'm exposed to dancing, dancers, music, tumbling, gymnastics -- the list goes on -- I feel like a different person. It makes me want to be better. Stronger. It also kind of makes me a little sad. I was a great athlete when I was younger. I had a natural ability for dance and gymnastics. I just lost my way. Life happened and I lost my resources. It's almost like I lost myself and settled.
I know with the new year comes resolutions and one of mine is this:
I'm going to stretch. I'm going to grow. I'm going to dance. It sounds stupid even as I type it. I'm 25 and haven't tried anything of the sort in 10 years. I just feel like I have to. I owe it to that little girl who spent all of her time dancing and tumbling. She's still inside of me somewhere. I just need acknowledge that and allow her to make me a better version of myself.
