Board #7 {Ballet Nostalgia}

Thursday, May 9, 2013
I was going through some old pictures and found one from my ballet recital.  By no means would anybody describe me as a “girlie girl” but I did go through a dance phase in my early years.  Being Amazonian tall, I eventually realized my ballet dreams were not going to pan out. But those dreams have served as the catalyst for today’s inspiration board.

I decided to share the picture that started it all. I enjoyed ballet but as you can see by my tears, something is awry.  To answer your question – my sadness was a result of the fear that if I had to smile for pre-recital pictures that I would not have enough smiles left for the stage - I was 4 it made sense in my head. The teachers tried to force me to smile in these pics which resulted in frustration, tears, and a much needed hug from my parents!  Happy Throwback Thursday!
