When people think of power they think electricity or control, but that is not the case. For me, power is energy, and how I use it is very important. I can make my power channel through my whole body. When I am dancing, my moves are powerful and strong. I do not make as many mistakes as I do when I am at practice then I do when I am performing.
When I dance I feel like there is nothing in the world that can stop me, except maybe a broken ankle, but I will keep trying to dance. That is what my kind of power will do to me. I feel like if I were to stop dancing it would probably destroy me. When I am not dancing I am usually doing homework or hanging out with friends and family after school.
When I have the power to push myself to be the best person that I can be, it is the greatest feeling in the world. You feel as though you can fly, like you can do anything in your power and more. There was a dance performance when I was in 8th grade and I went down into my splits and I got hurt. At that moment I felt like I had lost all control over that dance. Then it hit me, I thought “Why should I lose because of a little injury?” So I got up and I fought hard to do the rest of my kicks. It hurt really bad, but I had to finish and I had to keep dancing. I felt like if I stopped I would lose control. It was really hard, but I finished and I felt great! If I can find my power then you can find yours. All you have to do is find what you’re made of and let it bring the power out of you. So can you find yours??
