I miss how you wanted me.
Warning: it’s a bout to get real sentimental in this post.
So tonight I had a really big performance with one of the companies I dance for, and a friend of mine who use to dance for this company came to the show. I was so thrilled and teary eyed that I just couldn’t form words at some point and my cheeks hurt from smiling so much. Being a professional dancer has just made me feel like such a better person on the inside and out. I have my friend to thank for all her positivity and motivation, she really is any inspiration. I texted her after the show about coming to see her debut with a new company she joined and one sentence she responded with was "I look forward to seeing more of your dancing and I have a feeling I will be dancing with you in the future!!!" I can’t honestly express how much I love doing what I do. I look at my profession, not as a job but a life style. And the best part is it’s a profession where you just keep growing, learning, and doing every day until something says 'it's time to take what you've learned and pass it on to the next aspiring dancer' :)
