“Get busy do it!!”
So as I wrote in my last post, I want to work on my solo skills. Any time I have said that in th past, I haven’t had much follow through. I always work on one thing and then back into the group stuff for one of my many troupes
I have a good report though. I got back from practice tonight and then went onto the Internet. I spent so much time on there that it was 11:45 PM when I got off and I still hadn’t worked on my solo stuff. Thoughts went through my head like they do every day. I am tired from practice. I can start tomorrow. I already practiced with a troupe. I did plenty. These are the same things I have said to myself for years. All of these phrases are things that go against what I tell others. Just do it. Can I put that excuse in the show program?? Suck it up –also a favorite.
So you know what comes next. With my lazy pajama wearing ass in the recliner, I felt guilty enough to get up, put on appropriate practice attire (at least appropriate enough to wear in my own home) and I started working on my solo stuff. I took an advanced online dance class.
I love what I learned. I love that I got up and did it when the easier thing was to stay in my comfy chair and my jammies. And let me give you one piece of unasked for wisdom–you will never be sorry that you didn’t choose laziness!!
