I had no intention to try jumping in class today for the first time post surgery, but in the moment, it just felt right to T R Y.
A little scared? Yes.
But one thing I’ve been learning throughout this process of coming back to ballet is how to cultivate a simple mindset.
Instead of cultivating anxious thoughts, “Am I ready? Is it going to hurt?” I just told myself, “Think supported glutes, back, and core”. And in that moment, I was grateful that all the work I’ve been doing outside the studio felt like it was paying off.
It’s going to continue to be a long road, but I couldn’t help but think that exactly 9 months ago, I was bed ridden, recovering from surgery in a splint, & hardly able to crutch around our apartment.
One day at a time 💕

It’s funny how we can so easily convince ourselves of liking or disliking things. I’ve never been someone who really enjoys writing, but this summer I decided to push myself and I started journaling every morning. Not about anything in particular, just my thoughts or feelings about the day to come or sometimes I would just practice my cursive alphabet, but my goal was to fill three pages a day. And I’m pretty proud of myself that I just filled up my first full notebook with my thoughts. So I guess I actually do enjoy writing? Because I’m already excited to fill up another one ✏️
