before I start, this is definitely not one of those unhealthy thinspo blogs.

I'm going to start off now by saying that I'm a dancer, I'm sixteen, and I've been dancing for about eight years out of my life. I'm absolutely in love with dance, it's my emotional release, it gets me through everything. I'm currently trying very hard to be the best that I can be and I'll continue to push myself until I get there. As a dancer, I'm surrounded by others that inspire me to work harder, but at the same time I often feel down on my luck because I'm not quite there yet. Sometimes I feel self conscious about my weight, or about how my body appears, so I end up comparing myself to others. I've decided to make a change. So, I created this blog to motivate and inspire me. To remind me that with hard work, perseverance, and a positive attitude, I can achieve all of my goals.

In this blog, you'll find inspirational photos, dance photos, quotes, personal updates and stories, and anything else I find helpful on my journey. I hope that you'll follow along and maybe get inspired as well. Enjoy.

Another thing, are you on pointe yet? almost everyone in my group is and i'm close but i want to asap. Any foot and ankle streches/tips?

I’m not on pointe and I don’t know what it means to be close to it so you might have to explain that to be first :p
