Hey guys! This is my first ever personal blog post. I usually just post content with helping the viewer in mind. However, today I decided to start sharing personal posts as well on here. There’s two main reasons for this. One someone might be able to benefit or learn from my experiences. Two, I want to be more open and transparent with my struggles and successes.
So today I want to express how weird the last few weeks have been for me. I’ve been trying to learn how to use my arms and body gracefully. Which is not natural for me at ALL. Anyway, it’s a really interesting experience, for multiple reasons. One, I keep finding myself stepping farther and farther outside my comfort zone without even realizing it. I’ll randomly just go for something when usually I’ll think it through first. Yesterday (5/25/21) I just danced to the music on the load speakers without thinking or caring. And my movements actually flowed pretty well! I’m not usually the type to outwardly express myself more than necessary. But over the last few weeks I find myself stepping further and further towards being the kind of person who can. Which is an amazing personal achievement for me.
The second reason this is an interesting experience is that it translates to the rest of my life. I feel more social and able to interact with others better than before. And this got me thinking back on before I started skating. After reflecting I realized how much figure skating has helped me become more confident and extraverted. I can’t wait to improve even more and update you guys later on! I hope you are all having a good week.
