Practice makes perfect.

I took this pic when I was working on a show out of town.  It was on a bulletin board in a quiet little studio that I found to warm up in before my entrance.  I remember seeing it and thinking..wow!  Never heard it put like that before.  As a dancer, I know that the thousands of hours at the barre in ballet, or the classes in a studio, or the weeks of rehearsal before a show opens- are part of the journey to seek perfection.  But I never REALLY thought about how each moment you spend on learning or trying something new…you are adding to your knowledge and mastery of that thing.  It made me think…What do I spend my time on?  If you spend time on negativity and pain, you will become an expert at that.  If you spend time on growth and happiness, you will master that.  In Yoga we are taught to say I “practice” yoga.  Because ultimately-there will always be something to work on-something to learn.  I like that idea.   It mirrors the human condition…perfectly flawed.  And excellence does become a habit because it becomes your own normal.  Cool!
