Across the Universe

My heart aches because I feel that I haven't had the opportunity to make a difference in the world. I think every person is here for a purpose. Mine has not been used yet. Maybe it was watching the pain of losing a child to a revolution or losing a boyfriend to the war but while watching this movie it made me realize. My generation is full of empty, selfish and shallow people. Who are only concerned with what they have, not who they have touched. When my grandfather died in his wallet was a saying that said. "It doesn't matter the type of car your drive, the house your live in or what your bank account totals but that you mattered in the life of a child." I want to be that person who makes a difference in the world, not the one that owns the most shoes.

This is a picture of me from class last night. haha. JK. I just started back up with ballet last evening. It is a 6 week intensive basic ballet class and it was with my teacher I had previously. I love it. She actually paid me a huge compliment. She said, "I'm so glad that you are here because I can teach up front and when we turn around everyone can follow you!" My mouth almost hit the floor. What a great thing for your teacher to say to you. I could see my reflection in the windows of the dance studio and I noticed that it seemed like people were following me, now I just need to remeber to count and keep track of what i am doing! The above picture is of a ballerina on toe. I am so jealous of her. My goal is to eventually learn pointe. Its not because I want/ think I could be a ballerina for a living but Its just a personal goal of mine. I envy the grace and the strength that it takes to be able to do that. I guess I will just have to keep on practicing.

My class last night was awesome. I really felt like now I am comfortable enough to concentrate on the basic ballet principles. I was working so hard. I think the lady next to me thought I was crazy. She just kinda flopped her foot out to the side and pretended to do the moves. She seemed like a new divorcee who's trying to "find herself" but hey props to signing up for a class that could possibly be embarrasing.

Well I have to go to work!
