Are you living your life full out?
I have wanted to move for some time, but fear was stopping me.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
You see, I hate sucking…⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I know dance, and I know when you don’t train you to have to accept that you will not be as good as you want to be when you step back on the floor (or in this case on the zoom)… ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
All of these thoughts were running miles through my mind as I logged into that Broadway Dance Center Zoom Class. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
And guess what? I was one of the older ones in the class. I did not feel amazing in my body, and I left class early because I couldn’t get the combination…⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
And then I remembered this:
The sum of feeling successful is the small actions taken daily.⠀
If I do not train consistently I will not be in the mental or physical shape to take dance classes at the capacity I desire! ⠀
You see, I’ve been having this conversation with listeners in my DM’s a lot lately!
The conversation about not wanting to or not being able to dance anymore.
About not being comfortable in your body, and feeling like you’re losing a part of yourself.
And, you’re not alone.
Let this serve as your reminder to accept where you are and do what you have to do to get where you want to be.
-Commit to the journey of sucking in the beginning ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
-Build a solid foundation ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
In episode #132 of the Dance Boss Podcast, I sit down with Taylor Behringer, life-long dancer, mom, dance educator, & healer in the dance space. We talk about transitioning and owning your presence and your body, no matter where you are in your life. We also dive into what it actually means to create a safe space for dancers, and some action steps you can take to do just that.
So tell me honestly, what are you doing today to create the reality you want?
Come hang out with me on IG - @erinpride!
