TO PUT IT MORE BLUNTLY
(AND FAR MORE ACCURATELY),
I'VE BEEN BLESSED WITH THE
PHYSICAL GRACE OF A
When I was a girl, my mother signed me up for the occasional dance and gymnastics class. This was fine when I was really young and still cute. This wasn't so fine when I got older and chunkier and clunkier. I made ballet class look like a very bad audition for the cast of Stomp.
We all have different talents and attributes. Gracefulness is not one of mine. I am not poetry in motion, but I am (sometimes, hopefully) poetry on the page. And I'm good with that.
I'm all for trying new things, but I'm also all for not beating ourselves up when we think we're not "enough" - athletic enough, strong enough, smart enough, pretty enough, etc.
Let's play to our strengths, whatever they are. Use them. Enjoy them. Celebrate them!
