Long Weekend

arabesquetoday

As much as I love dancing the amount that I do, it always feels great to take a few days off to let my body recover… It feels so good to sleep in, knowing that I have the whole day to sit around and do absolutely nothing. I love uneventful days when they come around, because those kinds of days happen only a few times throughout the year. I am going to head out of state tonight with my family to take advantage of this long Labor Day weekend. We are heading up into the mountains, so I will be SURE to snap a few pictures for all of my photography lovers out there. 😉 As of right now, I need to start packing…

Wishing safe travels for all others who are traveling this weekend!!

After a long, hectic week of endless studying and school… rehearsals and dance…

We have finally made it to the week that everyone has been looking forward to…. SPRING BREAK HAS FINALLY ARRIVED!! Enjoy this gorgeous weather, and treat yourself right. Have a lovely break! 🙂

No matter how much I love the studio, it is always so relieving to get a break… However, after two or three days off:

I yearn to return to the barre

I think about each second I spend off and dread the thought of wasting precious time… I watch as the clock ticks and regret not practicing to the tock. Anger rises up inside of me, and I shake with anxiety. “I must dance. I have to dance. I am going to dance. I WILL dance!”

On the other hand, I have learned that it is important to rest and take time off to let your body recover from the stress of everyday… Pushing yourself too hard for too long leads to injury, which will make you rest for a lot longer than just one week…

Rest… Rest my darling… Rest up now… Take advantage of this break now….
