Starting ballet at 27

Wednesday, October 26, 2016


Long time no see. I've kinda forgotten about the blog for the past few months, too much work to do, too many worries... It's been a time of change again for me. I loved working at Lush with all my heart, loved the people, loved the place, loved everything but working 6 days a week, having a rotating schedule and being unable to fully disconnect. So I did what I do best, I kept on my quest for happiness, and thus, I quit.

Right now I'm just floating in universe, waiting for some injuries [that kept me on leave for two months] to heal. On September the 5th I started ballet. During my teens I fell in love with [specially] classic ballet, and I became obsessed. I managed to convince my mother, when I was 16, to take like a crash course with 6 year olds for a week. Ever since I felt like it's something I would have greatly enjoyed. At the time tho I was really busy with school and my extracurriculars. Now that I'm 27, sort of an stablished adult, I decided it was time to try it out! And so I did.

This is the first time, in my life, that I'm enjoying exercising... I've never ever enjoyed doing sport, until I tried ballet. Oh la la, it makes me feel amazing, I sweat like crazy, I'm getting strong and working on my flexibility, and I always want to train more! To me it's a really odd feeling, but I enjoy it despite.

I, in class, feel stupid some times, you feel like you're doing something beautiful... until you take a look in the mirror and realize you look like a fool XD But you can see improvements quickly, and honestly, after the first couple of classes all my fear and shame just went out the window, I was there to learn and be able to play something beautiful with my body.

Body confidence has also been big with this, I'm not that big, I think, but I'm the biggest in class, at least I'm not the oldest [by far] XD I've been battling with my body for the past 4 years, and I, at last, have found a form of exercise that I enjoy and want to do!

This is all for now, maybe next I'll show you my fave items for class as a beginner!

See ya later, alligators.
