Always a Part of You

Hello Lovelies!
Is every ones week off to a great start?  I hope so!
Saturday I got to do something that brought my past to the present!  I spent a few hours Saturday morning helping my moms God Daughter Izzy with her film her audition video for the American Ballet Theater summer intensive!

Dance used to be my life, I lived and breathed everything that was ballet!  I loved ballet because of how expressive of an art form it was.  I was a shy girl but when I danced I felt comfortable as if nothing else in the world mattered.  I felt strong and beautiful up on the stage dancing.  I sometimes wonder what life would have been like if I hadn't gotten injured, and what my life would look like now.  Would I still be dancing?  But despite all the what ifs I was given a wonderful reminder this past weekend.  I was reminded that even though I am no longer dancing ballet will always be a part of me, and I will always hold ballet near and dear to my heart!

But in all honesty all this talk about ballet has really made me miss it! And I am thinking about taking a few classes just for fun.  Maybe my muscles will remember what they are supposed to do after all these years!

What about you all, is there something you no longer do (like a sport, or dance) that has helped shape you into the person you are now?
