It was a quiet weekend--well kinda. Our troupe danced in an all-ages recital, which was great--but I was shocked at how nervous I was on stage. I don't know if it was the realization that these were all "hometown" people watching--the ones I try to stay under the radar from...or if it was actually being on a stage with the BRIGHT lights X-ing everyone out except the one little girl in the front row, smiling up at me. It felt good though.
Afterwards everyone went their own ways and I was met back at the house by my own star-lit girls, their dad and his girlfriend. We like each each--I feel lucky, but I realized they had no clue I was dancing and the GF was alittle rattled. She laughed asking if she could hate me now (of course I said yes, but I hope not) and then she proceeded to do what women do...which I feel bad about:
I could feel her uncomfortable images running through her head, talking about how she's young enough she should be taking better care, etc. etc. etc...Please please GF's --do not do this if at all possible. Everyone is at their own place and if by some chance, watching dancing or knowing about yoga, inspires you to try something new--then by all means, go for it. But please, don't compare yourself in the meantime. You have talents, I surely do not.
