Its been a while since I posted. A long while. For that, I apologize. This new year has started off crazier than last year ended... my personal time has been shrunk to - not a whole lot. On the positive side of things (because its best to stay positive) I have taken it as my GOAL to make this year of dance better than ever. Push myself more, be in better shape, be happy about how I dance at competitions... and try not to think about how young the &overs are now.

"I do not try to dance better than anyone else, I only try to dance better than myself" - Mikhail Baryshnikov

I found the quote above... and while Mikhail Baryshnikov is not an Irish Dancer... one can aspire to dance like him.  I have this quote pinned to my wall at work. And I try to remember... I can only do better than I can do. Not someone else. Push myself, dance my best, work my hardest. Unfortunately, Irish Dance is so very subjective... so while I may feel that I danced my best... the judges may not agree with me. The opposite is true as well... I may not feel that I danced well enough to be placed... but sometimes there it is.

We recently had the first feis of the year, WinterFeis. Last year I missed it since I was out of town... this year I was daunted by the task of ALL. NEW. STEPS. Whew. I didn't do all of them. But I tackled most! And... there is definitely room for improvement.
Winterfeis action
Dance... is going to be my main focus and goal. Being healthy and happy in that aspect of my life will hopefully tumble over to work life. :) Bring on the dance!
