Carrying me through

At the start of every school year, the place where I used to have my contemporary dance classes lets you try each of the classes and each of the levels once for free. I stopped dancing in July 2013 when I was diagnosed with endometriosis and told I had to have surgery. The surgery turned out not be necessary but then I went back to college and stayed away from dancing in order not to overdo it and have an MS relapse. With my masters starting two weeks from now looks like it’ll be another two years before I can go back to dancing. But that didn’t stop me from trying one of the classes for free tonight. I thought I’d be completely out of shape, I thought I’d forgotten everything, but the truth is the body has a memory of its own. For one hour today I felt really really happy, like I haven’t been in a long time. Like this is what I was born to do if MS hadn’t got in the way. I felt completely and positively alive. And I hope I can carry this feeling with me for the times to come.
