It has been 2 years. It is 3 am now and my head is just bursting of thoughts. I have been thinking of starting to write again for a while now. I still remember how the pressure to write felt like and how hard I was on myself back then. That has probably been the main reason I haven't started to write again. This time around I'm doing this for me.
A lot has happened in 2 years. I'm not even going to get started with everything but what I do want to say is that 2016 was a pretty damn good year for me. I graduated from High School, I worked, I travelled to Thailand with my sister, I worked a little more and I made a dream come true. I spent 3 months in LA and New York dancing and learning more about myself.
It is pretty crazy how you can miss a place, a person or a culture this much. As silly as it sounds it actually took me a while to process my trip and to be ready to write a little something about it. I started writing this post a few times and came up with just nonsense.
After saving up and dreaming of this trip
it was my time to go and follow my dreams. I loved every minute.
I could stop here but let me go on for a bit.
I feel like this trip allowed me to grow as a person more than I could've ever thought. I met people who I hope will stay as friends for life. I learned so much about dance. I challenged myself to my limits. I learned that it is ok to have dreams bigger than you (and that it is possible to achieve them!!) And that it is important not to be too hard on yourself. IT IS OKAY TO CHANGE YOUR PLANS. We have limitless options and we don't have to settle with anything that is not absolutely freaking amazing. We all deserve to have people around us who lift us up rather than pull us down. We must remember to be kind to each other, inspire each other and let others inspire us. Little actions of kindness can get us pretty damn far.
I have so many memories that I will hold close to me for the rest of my life.
It is actually feels pretty amazing when you decide to take little leap of faith and just go the way you feel your heart is taking you. Just got my personal statement done for an application to go to uni in London. And no, I'm not applying to study dance. And no, that doesn't make me any less of a dancer. And yes, I am still following my dreams.
Guess I'm back now. Feels good.
