So, today I pretty much did nothing… Except watch Arrested Development on Netflix and lay in bed (I also had a Mamosa, but that’s neither here nor there). I think my lack of productivity is really ironic since I just launched this blog yesterday which is pretty much my declaration to the world that I will work endlessly to reach my dream. I did not dance today, I did not exercise, train, or read anything pertaining to my goals. I turned my brain off.
At about 8pm I started thinking about why today, for some odd reason, I was unable to do any kind of work. Was I unmotivated? Or was I Tired?
My life before this blog consisted of a full-time job as a lead server at IHOP, Community Engagement Coordinator for a non-profit Dancers and Health Together Inc., full-time student at Arizona State Univeristy, President/Founder of student organization called Free The Dance, an Executive Board position on a student club called Dance Undergraduate Organizational Support, as well as dancing about 25 hours a week. In other words, I did not sleep much. So I was leaning more towards defining today as a well needed day of rest that I did not get often.
This rest may be essential to this journey anyways. When you are on a exercise plan, you often have a day of rest so that your muscles can grow and perform better. My brain is a muscle and I rarely gave it rest, and today seemed long overdue for it.
And I am excepting this rest! I have a great deal of days ahead of me where I can bust my butt in the studio and on stage trying to get to that level of recognition as a dancer and choreographer! Can’t beat myself up about one day of leisure, right?
