"The music is all around us, all you have to do is listen."

I can't believe a year ago tomorrow I performed for the very last time on the stage with my company--Ballet Caliente. Little did I know how much I would miss it..

"A girl with a passion is unstoppable."

Passion, it's what feeds your soul when you've been sucked dry. It lights you up inside like nothing else can, it fuels your drive and gives you purpose. Life without passion is dull. I've had the pleasure of spending fifteen years of my life doing what I consider my passion...dance. I'm a ballerina and always will be. I thought after graduating high school the chapter would come to a close, it would be something of the past, that I loved and treasured but not something I would want to continue the rest of my life. I was wrong. I haven't danced in a year and it feels as though a part of me has gone to the grave. Passion fuels purpose and when part of my passion was taken from me, I felt as though a part of me was gone. I absolutely love dancing and always will. I want it to be a part of who I am for the rest of my life.  As I've grown and transition into the next phase of my life I've come to realize that you have to do what makes you happy. Life is far too short to be miserable and not content with what you're doing. What I mean by happy doest mean you won't experience anything hard, because that's not reality. We all face hard things because its what makes us who we are, but living everyday doing what you love is how life should be lived. As corny as the saying YOLO sounds, it's true, you're only given one life...so make the most of it and fuel your passion. Find purpose. I promise, you won't regret it.
