As artists we put our work out for people to see. We also invest our whole selves in our work. The art itself becomes a part of us as we create and most of us are unable to separate where the artist ends and where the art begins. We become a part of the art we create, attaching ourselves to it.
I also wonder whether it is better to create and then separate.... like you’ve let it go... once you’ve made it, it is no longer yours. It becomes everybody’s. It has a life of its own. In some ways, I feel this is better because then we can look at our creations objectively, with scrutiny without the emotional attachment that we have during the process of creation....

Inner peace, gratitude and self love: always stay committed to these💕
Wishing all a very Happy Valentine’s Day!
s t i l l 🌙🖤 // since yesterday was Valentine’s Day, and my feelings towards this holiday are mixed(I believe that you should show love every day, not just on a specified day😬) in my contemporary class we talked about love and the different types of love that we can experience. I also felt it was important to talk about heartbreak, because love is not always flowers and chocolates and posting on Instagram about how much we love someone. Love is messy and can also leave you feeling really fucking empty. So yesterday instead of dancing about the day of love, I decided instead to teach choreography that was a honest representation of where I am in my journey with love. I feel like in the moment it was the right choice for myself personally, and felt it was very healing. I am thankful for my wonderful students @indiedanceproject for allowing me a safe space to acknowledge how I was feeling and letting me talk their ears off about my thoughts/ideas, and still loving me all the same. But anyways, I hope y’all had a Valentine’s Day that was whatever you needed it to be. Enjoy me being all angsty and stuff and in my feels about love. 🙃😬🤷♀️🖤 // music : @ohdaughter // moves : @taybakescakes //
