Ordinary Days

For this week’s blog post I decided to do two people that are always inspiring me, two of my dance teachers, Kyleigh Carlson and Morgan Marsoobian. They are not only pushing me to be a better dancer but most of all constantly pushing me to be a better person. They are some of my biggest mentors not only in dance but in life and luckily I get to see them almost everyday. I have created relationships with both of them where I feel like I can talk to them about anything. I chose them to be apart of my blog because I wanted to know how they would spend their last day.

If eye had one day left to live, I wouldn’t do anything outrageous but instead would do all of my favorite ordinary activities to create an extraordinary day.  I love children, I love dance, I love God, I love my family and friends and I’ll say it, I love coffee, so my day would be filled with all of these things. I know I don’t get to choose what day it is BUT if I could, it would be a Sunday. I would start my day by going to church and worshiping with a body of believers. Then, because I would want to feel inspired on this day,  I would go to the dance studio and TEACH a class that really allowed my students to move and explore the space around them. Overflowing with inspiration, I would then want to TAKE a class where I had the opportunity to express myself to the fullest potential in a room surrounded by friends, love and free of judgement. The rest of my day would be spent with family and friends in conversation. All of my family would come together along with my childhood friends, high school friends and college friends we would all come together for a huge gathering. Laughter would fill the room, memories would be shared and love would be felt by all. I would want to spend a great amount of time reminding everyone around me what I appreciated and loved about them specifically and would make sure to share the beauty of God’s amazing grace and unconditional love with everyone around me. My last day would be an ordinary day filled with all the simple things that I think makes life extraordinary.”- Morgan Marsoobian

To be honest, my initial reaction was “well that’s morbid.” And then my next reaction was to chase time, and go to different parts of the world so the day would never end, but the more I think about it the more I realize how ridiculous that sounds and that I actually wouldn’t want to do that. If eye only had one day to live I don’t think that I would do anything drastic. I would probably first go into a dance studio and just be. As silly as it sounds, dance is and always has been my therapy. After the studio I would write letters to my loved ones with my hopes and wishes for them and memories that I am sure I would never forget. For the rest of the day, I would really just want to be around family. That is the scary part- knowing that you would never be able to touch them, hold them, hug them and kiss them again. If I only had one day to live, I would ask my three very best friends to be by my side in the dance studio, I would ask my dad to tell me stories of when he was my age, I would ask my mom to sing me You Are My Sunshine, I would ask my sister to go on a drive and get frozen yogurt, I would ask my sisters’ boyfriend to be his silly self because he never fails to have me in tears from laughter, and I would ask my boyfriend to hold me until it was time because in his arms is where I feel the safest.”- Kyleigh Carlson
