she cannot, simply cannot be 12

It is once again the lil sista's birthday
 so this post is dedicated to her :)
HAPPY BIRTHDAY CAMRIE CLAIR!
I was trying to think of something I could do for you that would be better than last year's little video and post where I got lots of people to say happy birthday to you but I couldn't think of anything. I'm sorry I'm lame. So I went through my iphoto and found a bunch of pictures of you. You are adorable to say the least!

flexibility

After dancing a lot during the day for school, its hard to keep myself motivated enough to do more at home to make myself a better dancer. People may think I'm cray cray for doing anything at home because of all the dance I have throughout the day but no. That's not really how I see it.

I have a hard time watching things like dance moms and not comparing myself to them. I know its ridiculous but I can't help it! These kids are 8-12ish years old and they are able to do all these incredible tricks and what not and I've been dancing for 17ish years. That's A LOT! and I'm not even half as good as those kids. Its insane! I will definitely never be able to do quite a bit of what they do, but I still think that if I work at it, I will be able to be as flexible as them or at least more flexible.

I have never had it easy with flexibility. Its always been something I've had to work at. Before BYU I had never ever touched my toes before. Welllllll now I can! and I can HOLD it there without crying! This is a huge deal for me.. dancing for 15 years and never being able to touch your toes is absolutely retarded. My body has changed so much since coming here and learning all that I have and I wouldn't trade it for the world. I am loving the improvements that I am making.

Last night I watched the latest episode of dance moms and my gosh. Those kids are incredible. It just left me feeling inspired to stretch and do better. It was too late for me to do anything last night when I finished the episode so I made myself a promise that I would work on it today.

And I did.

I just finished and I can already see improvement. It feels soooooo goooooood!
