So today was not a great dance day. I had ballet this morning for two hours, and the whole class was just me, not having a good day. This happens to everyone, of course, but today it happened to me. It sucked. You finally hit a beautiful double pirouette and you're about to try for three the next day, and bam. Tomorrow comes and you literally cannot even make one solid turn. Not a triple, not a double, and not even a single. So why does this happen? Maybe it's to appreciate the good days, or maybe it's to keep us humble when we've been bragging too much about our progress. Today really had me down, but I have an amazing support system. I called up my sister and told her I needed some reassurance, (mind you my sister was in the middle of the work day and she answered the phone to tell me how great I am- jealous? you should be, she's the best). Today I needed the boost, but some days she'll put it to me straight and not cut corners. We need both, but at the end of the day, it's time to move on.
