split emotions

dar-thursday-31-8

By the end of yesterday’s 6 1/2 hour rehearsal run, I was left feeling a bit like this ^

Now I’ve got two days off before heading into an 8 day work week.  Yes, you read that right- 8 days, Tuesday-Tuesday.  Sandra Jennings (of the Balanchine Trust) returns next weekend to finish setting Agon (eeeep!) and I’m feeling excited/nervous/happy/stressed/anxious/inspired…I could go on and on.  But, instead of succumbing to negativity, I’m taking on the super week with one piece of advice in mind:  Have fun.

The only way to triumph over a situation that intimidates you is to treat it as a fun challenge.  Approach it as a chance to surprise yourself.  Dare yourself to do more, work harder and like it.  These are the words of wisdom I’ll be keeping in mind next week.

Happy weekend, all! x
