This past December I reached the milestone of 40 years old and like many people it was time to reflect on where I've been and where I’m going. Its clear to me that 40 is not what it used to be and the fact that I don’t feel or look it has aided me in keeping an optimistic outlook. The stigma attached to this age is still one that drives many people to look at them selves through an honest perspective and decide if they are happy with the path they are on or if its time to make drastic changes. For me it’s the same and reaching this age at the same time as my transition from dancer to what ever adventure is coming next, has been scary and liberating at the same time. Ive always had things to anchor me somewhat in areas of discipline but I'm a free bird at heart and I'm looking forward to continuing to work on this to achieve a more perfect balance between a structured foundation and a free roaming spirit. One thing I have learned in life so far is that dreams and ambitions are no longer things that are to be done way off in the future. I’ve spent many hours over the years thinking and planning and my ideas were alway something that would be done later on down the road. At this point I’ve accomplished a few things in my life that I am extremely proud of, and I believe that now is the time to strengthen my foundations and realise my objectives. I hope to always be my self, but I am working on being a better me and I know that that will only happen with the support of the people around me who have contributed so much in making me the person I am today. To all my friends and family, thank you so much! I look forward to the many great adventures that await us!
