It’s been some time since I’ve been able to post anything on here. I decided that today, Thanksgiving Day, would be the perfect day to update my blog and let everyone know what I’m thankful for this year….which is a lot!
First of all, I am still dancing for this project. I still dance every day with hopes that Ellen DeGeneres herself might someday see how she’s inspired me. I admit to being behind on posting my videos, but to put it simply, my life is happening. Between school and work, I have had minimal time to edit together anything. I’m hoping to get a few videos up this Thanksgiving weekend and then get all caught up over winter break.
Now I would like to write about some things that I’m really thankful for this year. The first thing I am thankful for is all the wonderful people in my life. My family is extremely important to me and they’re always there to support me. With my college career coming to a close, I realize that I couldn’t have done these last few years without them. My friends are also near and dear to my heart. I’m so thankful for all of them. I’ve made a lot of new friends over the years and this semester alone. I am thankful for their support in this project and for just being there for me in general. I know some truly talented, fun, hilarious, and all around amazing individuals that have made my life that much better. I’m also thankful for everyone who has supported dancingfordegeneres and everyone who has danced with me!!! This project has taught me more than I can say about life. I’ve learned that life is too short to sit back and do nothing. I’ve learned that you have to go for it all, do something you’re afraid of, make the most of the little things, get excited for no reason at all, mess up, try again, figure it out one step at a time, be yourself (always), give a lot to others, accept others, be passionate about something, be passionate about everything and I’ve learned that things may not turn out how you want, but there’s always something big to take away from every experience. This project has been that for me. I have hope in my heart that Ellen will see these videos. Maybe she won’t see them now, but maybe she will someday. And if she doesn’t, I KNOW something great will come out of this.
