We’ve entered the second month of 2017. It’s usually around this time that people start wavering on their New Year’s resolutions. Bad weather prevented you from making it to the gym last week, and this week you had to work overtime and were just really tired. Multiple people at the office had birthdays, which means cake, and you didn’t want to be rude and not have a piece, or two. Then your friend was having a hard time so you comforted her by having a girls’ night complete with pizza and booze. Or, if you’re like me, your demons got loose and you decided to go to bed at 8pm, foregoing the stretching and dance practice you were going to do.
In my darkest moments, I think about the what ifs that could take ballroom away from me forever. Money, injuries…it’s terrifying!
But I think I can be brave enough against my demons to say, I would still be a dancer!
WARNING: You may not like what I have to say.
My topic today is potentially awkward and maybe even controversial. But it needs to be addressed, for all those just getting started on their pro-am ballroom journeys.
How perfect to read an article about changing your mindset at the start of the new year!
