My second round of ballet classes starts in two weeks and I'm so excited. I've always adored ballet, but I always thought I was too old to start taking classes. A 15 year old beginner? Not going to make a career out of that. A 19 year old beginner? Pshh, yeah right. Then I turned 22 and I said screw it. I'm going to take ballet classes. Am I going to be a professional ballerina? No. But who says I have to be? I'm going to take a ballet class because I love it. I feel it in my bones. It's something I've always wanted to do, so finally, I did.
Now that I've started, I can't stop. There is seriously nothing I love more than donning a leotard, tights, and ballet shoes, throwing my hair in a bun, and getting my ballerina on. I have bad feet and weak ankles, but I've never felt more beautiful, more challenged, more accomplished, and more in control of my body. I absolutely love it.
Have you taken up a new hobby as an adult that you've completely fallen in love with?
