Those moments... When you really want to achieve something and you start feeling like things are holding you back from making it happen...
Everyone must know by now that my dream is to be a professional dancer, not just in ballet, but in all types of dance. Probably about a month ago, I had a huge breakdown. I wanted to take all sorts of dance classes, not just ballet. Lyrical for example, which is my favourite type of dance. Jazz, I used to do last year, I wanted to go there again. I thought, how is my dream going to happen if I'm only taking one genre of dance classes? In Dance Moms, a popular Lifetime TV reality show, girls around my age started pretty young. This is why It's not always good to watch reality TV shows, because you feel like you want it just like that person , and that person is the same age as you, and is given so many amazing opportunities, whilst you're just holding your head up and working on what you want to do. Right?
When I was about 3 I actually did take ballet classes, but unfortunately I didn't like it! How much I wish I did so that I don't have to put up with all this struggle.
Starting ballet last year in December was pretty cool for me, except that I had to IMPROVISE (Thank God it wasn't in front of the whole class alone) and you know what, It's amazing to me. I couldn't care less if most people start when they're 2 or 3 years old, I want to be a professional dancer and if I have what it takes, it will happen. Misty Copeland started ballet at 13, and now look at her!
I really don't feel upset anymore about this, but anyone who does out there...Don't let ANYONE or ANYTHING stop you from achieving something you really want. Misty Copeland survived, and so will you.
