Just Keep Kicking

Everyone knows that my greatest goal in life has always been to become a Rockette. I've made it through the audition 7 times, attended 8 summer intensives, and spent a crazy amount of time and money working toward the dream. After making it all the way through twice last year, I was a little shocked to not hear my name after the second round yesterday. I went to class right after this setback and was asked if I was a Rockette haha I told the girl she made my day. I can't keep doing this to myself. I know I can dance. I know I could do that job. I also know that I want to set new goals. Why do I keep torturing myself over this one thing? Of course I will audition in the future if I'm free, but the new plan is to focus on other things that make me happy. I have so many talented and worthy friends in the same boat. We can't let this one thing define us. We can't let this determine our happiness. For now, I'm over it. Can't wait to pursue new adventures.
