a happy side effect.

i love my medicine.

a couple nights ago, i realized that i'm a completely different person than i was at the end of 2009.

i feel different, look different, act differently, speak differently, think differently.

and i'm not even done yet! there's still more good to come.

of course, it's not easy, but recognizing how far i've come is really encouraging.

one happy side effect that i didn't even consider is that my dancing has significantly improved.

i feel so much less inhibited. i have more confidence in my ability and my body. and the more i recognize this, the more i improve.

it feels amazing.

i wish i could do it all day long.
