Today while on pinterest I found a quote that I believe perfectly represents my current predicament. The quote said "If you stumble, make it part of the dance". After I broke my arm I really thought that this semester was going to be miserable. I was taken out of my dance classes and felt useless but as it turns out it has actually been pretty nice. After about a week of moping around I decided I needed to snap out of it. If I hadn't broken my arm, I wouldn't have been able to visit my friends like I've done the past few weeks. It also worked out pretty well that the classes I had to add to have enough credits turned out to be very interesting. I'm in a 60's inspired english class based on sex drugs and rock 'n' roll and a history class focused on the 90's.
I suppose I could be upset that I'm not dancing this semester and I don't see my dance friends as much but lately I've really been trying to think on the positive side of life. I found this quote inspiring because of the relation to dance. Instead of staying down I decided to pick myself up and make the best of the current situation.
As my friend Paige said, " this is just a bump in the road" and although I cannot wait to return to dance I think it has been a blessing in disguise.
