Ok, let's all take a moment and acknowledge that things are not as pretty and easy as shown on social media.
It's in our nature to want to showcase this amazing and perfect life so that others can admire and envy us.
So I want to get real for a second.
I keep posting this beautiful photos where I look all happy and my life seems perfect, and it's not the case.
For example, I will never have perfect feet. My feet work a lot, are happy and covered in blisters. My feet feel and love so passionately that they sometimes bleed.
My feet are free and they mostly hate shoes so they walk barefoot A LOT so thier skin is not baby soft.
And I am ok with that.
There is a lot of hard work and effort behind every ballet class so of course I will get wounds. My toenails are basically so fucked up from the pressure they endure when I do my practice en pointe that the doctor forbade me to put nail polish on them until they recover. But I love it so much, I don't care to look perfect.
I go to these yoga events called "ecstatic dance" - which is basically a dance therapy where we dance freely, barefoot for 2h, so of course I sometimes bleed in the end, because I allow myself to dance so passionately and fiercely that I don't feel pain at all (this picture is taken after 2 weeks from an event so imagine how bad was at the time)
I go to yoga 3 times a week now, and you see all these pictures where I stand is different asanas all paceful, but my body is constantly sore, in pain, worn out. And I love it cause its way of telling me that I do a good job and that it is getting stronger everyday.
So, my point is: it's perfectly fine to do the things you love with mad passion, without worrying about the picture perfect social media tries to sell us. Go out and love more, be happy and stop caring what other people say.
