Riga / dancer / 2016
Even though I can't physically take myself back to 5 years ago, I still remember the feelings I had that day. Before that one particular day I was worried for quite some time that I didn't know what to do after highschool. I had a lot of interests, but none of them seemed to outshine the others. Except for dance. At that time I was dancing for 8 years already and loved every bit of it, but I wouldn't allow myself to explore the depths of dance further, because I was afraid that I couldn't make it in the dance world.
So one day I was just outside my school and I said to myself: "Why in the whole wide world am I protesting against myself? Resisting against my deepest desire to dance? Why can't I allow myself to feel free and live in a world with endless possibilities that dance offers?" Feeling was like I just escaped some sort of prison that my mind had set for me. And among those tears that fled my face, was the biggest smile of relief. No more self-doubt, critique or repulse from me against my deepest desires. That day I was set free and since that day my journey in the world of dance has been pure magic and everything I couldn't even dare to dream of!
