Julianne commented on Keep your eyes and mind open.

This is a great post, I couldn't agree more! :) Your words remind me of a short film a friend of mine made about the sparkles of New York city's sidewalks. Check it out!

Hi Jessica,
Thanks for sharing your very personal story. As an optimist, I'd like to believe that there is always a second chance in life to get back at missed opportunities. Perhaps you can bring dance back in to your life in some way!
I think it is interesting that you chose a different, perhaps safer life path during your studies as I believe my college years were personally the most formative in my life thus far. The decisions made during my four years will greatly impact my future career. I think your example highlights the importance of finding a way to help foster students' confidence during these years of higher education, something to definitely keep in mind during this challenge!

This is a wonderful story Joshua, I'm so glad you shared it as it brings back conversations with my own dad. Your father sounds like an amazing and supportive man. While I have yet to have kids, I hope that when I am a parent, I can instill the same hardworking ethic in my children that ultimately will help them to live fulfilling, successful (and hopefully creative) lives!
