When I moved from NYC to Boulder, Colorado and started a new chapter as a business owner, wife and mother, I came up with a million reasons why I could no longer be a dancer.

Too old.
Too busy.
Not professional enough.
Not revenue-generating.
Etc. Etc.

I compartmentalized myself.

I decided I could be EITHER a professional woman OR a dancer. I don’t know about you, but I am so fucking sick of living in the EITHER OR.

Let’s create lives that are a rich, textured, messy blend of BOTH AND. It doesn’t have to be linear. It doesn’t have to make sense to anyone but you.

But let it be BOLD.
And courageously joyful.
