Anyway, so last week I attempted to wear a turtleneck and it was too hot, this week I wore a turtle neck, sweater, scarf, and thick tights and was still slightly cold. When I got the tights down from our closet I was rummaging through them to find a brown pair, and in the process pulled out some pink ballet tights. I don't know if at that point my heart dropped or lept but, some kind of emotional gurgled up inside of me. I have taken taken any sort of dance class in so long, and its ballet in particular that I miss.
Not like I have every been some sort of amazing ballet dancer, in fact I am much better at using my ballet training to do other types of dance and look better than I am doing them, but I did take ballet for a long long time (along with other types of dance) and I had forgotten how much I enjoy it and did not realize that I have been missing it. Why has it been so long? Well, because I graduated from college (where I always took a dance class) followed by a mission (no dance class), followed by getting married which some how has meant no dancing, but marriage has been nice.
So, even though I will not be taking dance at least in the next year, I am going to try and dance a little bit each day, or stretch or do some type of physical activity that is not walking, running or plain exercise....that's my goal.
***actually a little bit of dancing did occur during the mission...here's the proof
