💫 By dancing, I can express the things residing inside my soul that won't come out with words. It is as if those things need the gentle sound of piano music and the barre as their support to collect the courage needed to climb out of their hidey hole. ⁣ ⁣ 🔮 I can't believe how lucky I am to have found something that alllows me to feel something that touches the mystery of being - and that this something is as easy as taking a ballet class in the morning.

🍝 Situation: arms and legs that feel like useless spaghetti⁣ 🤸🏼‍♀️Cause: pilates class this morning⁣ 🌸 Why? Me trying to better my life⁣ ✨ Result: Wake-up call. I always thought that my overall strength and fitness was okay. I was wrong. I was by far the most flexible in class, but also by far the weakest in almost every exercise. Now I'm wondering if it is better to build up with a slower pilates class, or that I should better try to do more silk, or other sthrengthening exercises to improve my muscle mass. ⁣ 💭 Question: what do you do, next to ballet? And how is your overall strength?

💐 Jumping through the air for the new issue of @the_greengallery, seeing how far I've come in ballet (I can tell you my sissonnes sure didn't look like this when I just restarted). And it makes me wonder; how does learning new things work? How do you keep curious? How do you keep inspired to keep on growing?⁣ ⁣ 💭 I want to learn how to write better. The problem is: I find writing so appallingly difficult that I sometimes wonder why I even try in the first place. It is as if I want to catch life with sentences and words, but life is a fickle little thing that flutters away when it senses that you try to come near. ⁣ ⁣ 📝 The thing is: if I don't write, a feeling of loss creeps over me. I feel like life slips through my fingers and my thoughts keep swirling and swirling without any structure or purpose. So I write. I try to make sense of it all, and not to approximate what I think anymore. I try to really think deep and thorough. I battle on, I fail and start again. ⁣ ⁣ 📖 I feel like sometimes reading someone else's battle with learning and failing can be very refreshing. I read a lot more since I joined a book club (hi fellow book nerd @berryamsterdam 👋🏻) and diving into the lives of others teaches me a lot about my own. ⁣ ⁣ 📚 'Surely You're Joking, Mr. Feynman!' is a book that encourages me to try more new things, and that it is okay to fail in the first place. It taught me about joy and curiosity, finding new passions and discovering new worlds while never losing your own authenticity. And isn't that what life should be all about?⁣
