Perfection

sincerely dance nerd

You'll never be perfect.

Go back and read that again.

You often hear me talk about perfectionism and ways to overcome it.

I do it often because it is a common struggle for dancers.

I do it often because I have to preach to myself.

It isn’t easy to put yourself out there, day after day. It takes maturity to not care about what others think, to accept your best for today, and to move forward even when you haven’t reached "perfection."

But, I promise you that it is so much better than waiting on the sidelines. It is so much better than wasting your time on fear.

What matters is that you make your best effort.

It can be hard for dancers to believe that that is truly enough, but I’m here to confirm it for you today.

Your best today is enough. Tomorrow is another day.

Share this with a friend who needs to know that their best is enough.

Sincerely,

Dance Nerd
