Dancing with the feet is one thing, but dancing with the heart is another.

Last Thursday I started ballet again. I danced all throughout school and at 5 months pregnant I was pretty much forced to give it up. I’ve never missed anything so much in my life. Five years later I’m back into it and I couldn’t feel any more amazing. I’ve also been working really hard at losing weight, so this is one of my rewards. I was so giddy I made Steve snap a photo of me before class.
In class I recognized the terms pretty quickly and hopefully in a few months I’ll be back to my old self again. After class my poor toes were bright red and a couple days later the backs of my thighs felt like they got hit by a semi-truck, but my body will get over it and get used to it again.
Have you ever gone back to a hobby or skillset that you had before? Did it feel different?
I feel like it’s so much different for me now but 5 years doesn’t seem like a long time. It will take some practice, that’s for sure!
