Today in my ballet class, we performed a very traditional "adagio", movements that make up the core of ballet. The movements are in French and they are the basics every young student learns in their first years of ballet. Whenever we perform an adagio, I think of the six year old version of myself, naïve and adorable. During class, I reminisced about my younger years and how easy things were. Everything was hair bows and ice cream sundaes. Barbie dolls and coloring books. Hugs from Mom and sparkly red shoes. Mermaid costumes and frosted animal crackers. Just thinking about it makes me feel nostalgic and happy. Everyone should take time to look back on their past, smile, and let it brighten your day.
