I love this picture for two reasons. 

The first and obvious one is because it’s a pretty picture taken for a @sel project. She made me look so beautiful and it’s a good picture.

But most importantly, it reminds me of one of the most difficult times in my life.

That very day I was in the most pain I have ever been, physically and emotionally. Two days prior I had my ACL and meniscus surgery and my knee was hurting like hell. I was facing 9 months of rehab and didn’t have any income, nor did I know when and if I ever dance again.


Also, I just broke up with my boyfriend the night before. You might ask why do you like being reminded of this period? And the answer is because it also reminds me that it has all passed and things fell back into place. I recovered, not in 9 months but 16 – it took way longer than expected – but here I am, fitter and stronger than ever. I am a better dancer than I have been before my injury.

My heart healed and I have learned to choose men wiser. I have multiple sources of income and I am fine. 


Life is not always roses and rainbows. But it all pass, you just have to remain strong at the dark times and depending on the situation either way have patience and wait or take action and make the most out of current circumstances and take action to change things. And always remember, that no matter how bad it is, it will all eventually pass and maybe get even worse at some point, but after that, it will get better. Maybe even better than it had been ever before.
