I recently saw a bumper sticket that said the following:

REMEMBER WHO YOU WANTED TO BE

I really like the sentiment behind this. Too many of us get caught up with the rat race of life and leave our dreams behind us. It is sad when someone leaves this earth with many regrets about things they wish they’d done.

But what I think is important is who we want to be now. Where many of us stumble is that we are not able to see what it is we want; sometimes the truth of what we want, compared to our reality, hurts because we see it as unattainable or impractical.

I’m not exactly sure who I want to be, but I know that dance is helping me be that person.
