I’m feeling like beginning this week with a soothing sound and graceful movements.
And not just any ballet, here I give you Alicia Alonso and the Ballet Nacional de Cuba (National Ballet of Cuba), only one of the most famous ballets in the world. You don’t have to know a thing about ballet to see why.
(If you have time you can watch entire acts of the Black Swan, this is the third one for example. I had to drag myself away from it because I kept opening them waaaaay past bed time.)
I mean, did you saw those positions?! Did you thought about the pain that each one implies on the body!? Did you, my friend, thought about the physical exertion that comes from standing in your freaking toe?!! Just the one toe!? CARRYING YOUR WHOLE BODY WEIGHT. Just think about it.
Yes. That is what you should reflect about this Monday. Go forth with newfound gratitude.
You are welcome.
