You may be surprised by the title of this blog post. But I am here to assure you that i’m not quitting blogging. In fact this is a very different topic, so let me start at the beginning.
I’ve been dancing since I was 7. I first started at the park district and then I later started and a christian ballet school. I danced in their Pre Professional program then after awhile i took a semester off. When I went back I wanted to go back into Pre Professional but the more we look, the more we realized that since I was getting into the high levels that it would cost waaaaaaaayyyyyyy to much money. So I went into the Youth Division which was great. I still loved dancing even though i wasn’t going to be a professional. Then it all started last November.
I started not enjoying it as much as I used to. I felt like I wasn’t learning anything different and I got bored. But I was scared to let it go because dance was what I’ve grown up with and I felt like it was the only thing I was good at because I had never done anything else. When December came around and it was time for our show i wasn’t as excited as I used to be. I was doing a dance I had done a number of times before and I was tired of dancing. I was on my way home from dress rehearsal the day before the performance when I brook down in the car to my mom saying I didn’t know what to do and I didn’t want to give it up. This was the start of me having multiple emotional break downs, which I am kind of embarrassed to emit 🙂 and me really searching to see what God wanted me to do.
I finally decided to try contemporary dance this spring ( I forgot to mention I had been doing ballet). I had always love that style so I gave it a try. I loved it but the farther I got along I knew that it was time to give up dance. Yes. I cried the day I decided I was done. Yes. I do wish I could go back sometimes. But overall I know I mad the right choice and I know God has something else he wants me to do.
So yes I am done with dance, but i’m not done with blogging. You’ll still have to deal with my posts 🙂
