The End of my One Year Commitment

At the start of the year I made a one year commitment to train towards my dream of being a professional dancer. One of the reasons why I started this blog was to document the ups and downs I went through and to keep myself accountable. While I didn’t exactly blog once a week like I originally intended to, I am able to write today that I kept up with the New Years resolution I gave myself in 2014.

Reflecting back, I’ve pushed through the doubt and gotten back up when I didn’t want to. There were days I almost quit, but I knew that wasn’t the answer. I suppose when you are seriously reaching for your dream you’ll find a way to make it happen.

Despite not having an immense amount of proper training I have seen a great improvement in myself as a dancer. No, I did not take as many classes as I might have wanted to, or trained as much as I could have, but I accomplished exactly what I wanted to. Actually, I’ve accomplished more than I thought possible! I never would have thought I would have the opportunity to dance with an amazing and inspiring professional company in NYC. I have also been blessed with talented and amazing mentors and friends. The whole process has taught me so much about how I want to live my life and what direction I want to take it in.

Now that 2015 is here I had to make a decision on whether or not to continue working towards my dream of dancing. I believe that I’ve come too far to quit now, so I’ve decided to continue dancing. Not only will I continue to work towards my dream of dancing professionally, but I’m expanding it further and I’m dedicating 2015 to working towards the life I really want to live.

I believe that 2015 will be the year I will accomplish my goal of being a professional dancer. I also believe that dancing will only be a snippet of what 2015 will have in store for me. I want to start acting and finish writing my book. I want to connect and inspire people through creativity and emotion. That is the life I want to live. And most importantly, I want to thank God because none of this would have been possible otherwise.
