For years I was a dancer, until an unfortunate run in with a trampoline at 17 ended any hope of dancing professionally.
Several months ago my oldest daughter started dancing with the Dance Academy that her school has. And I've watched her becoming a natural and potentially very gifted dancer. To watch her begin to become the dancer I never became is inspiring.
So recently I told her something that I've shared with only a few people. I have a goal--more than running--within the next 2 years I want to perform once more, in front of an audience. BUT this time I want the audience to be comprised of the people I love, because for me performing in front of strangers isn't a challenge, it's those that love you that can hurt you the very worst, so my goal is to do this, on a REAL stage and in front of all the family I've chosen over the years.
I know I CAN do it, but the question becomes, WILL I???
I guess if "Aunt Viv" can do it...so can I, you all just have to hold me accountable to this! :)
