Trust The Process
Have you ever felt like you've hit rock bottom and that everything in your favor isn't going as planned including your job, relationship, and future plans? A beautiful soul once said that it's okay to not have an answer right now, but "to trust the process." Although this is so scary for me to even comprehend, I know it's 100% true. I am a strong believer of "everything happens for a reason." Each let down, each rejection, each "failure" is leading to something great and something you have been achieving for years (at least I truly hope so). I know it's hard to stay positive during times like these because it's so easy to just go in the opposite direction and continue to tumble downhill. But, ladies and gentlemen keep that head up high and believe that everything we have worked for is leading to that goal or dream or whatever you've been wanting for so long.
There's been countless of times where I've felt defeated by my own craft that I've loved for more than 17 years. I've wanted to quit so many times. At moments like such I feel as though I'm not good enough anymore and that maybe my time has passed. It only takes an outside perspective to tell me that I am mistaken. I am reminded to look back at my journey and see how hard I've worked towards this dream. So much time, dedication, and love has been poured towards this passion of mine. It's simply too hard for me to just let it go in a second of a heart beat. There will always be rough times in any aspect of your life and no one specific route to success. I am on the most windy/bumpy/ San Franciscan hill to my dream. When I finally get to that finish line (whatever that may be), I know that I am going to be forever grateful for all those rejections and failures and moments of disbelief because that is what will shape me to be the person and dancer that I will become in the nearest future. And that is something I look forward to...
Rock bottom is a beautiful start... your time is coming... the results will handle themselves.
