For a long time there has been something missing from my life.. I mean, I’m happy, but I could be happier..
Years ago I decided to quit the one thing that bought me elated joy.. & that was dancing. I was mentally unwell and slowly destroying myself. I was never going to be a size 8 prima ballerina and that made me feel like I wasn’t good enough. In my mind, I was never good enough. Years on, I missed dance. I missed it so much. I missed it more than anything in the entire world.
When I had the opportunity to go back to dancing I grabbed it with both hands. Nervous, anxious & scared are just some of the emotions I felt, but I had to do it. I needed to it for myself.
Thanks to the Bodyform: Live Fearless campaign I have finally gone back to the one thing that I wish I had never left. Living fearless is something that I have struggled with my entire life & although I’ve accomplished and conquered many things, going back to dance was something I never thought would happen. It made me happy, but it was also the cause of so much pain.
Living fearless means forgetting the what ifs, the buts & maybe’s & simply going for it. Someone once told me ‘Grace, sometimes you just need to close your eyes & jump’, so thats what I did.
So here’s to living fearlessly, here’s to doing what makes you happy, here’s to ignoring those negative thoughts & bad feelings & here’s to my one true love. Dance!
