You know what feeling you get when you feel hundred of butterflies in your stomach? I have it. I feel so light and happy. I feel like my heart can burst any second from all the feelings. Freedom. Lightness. And happiness. That’s what I am feeling right now. I am in love. Actually, I was in love a long time ago, but I fell out of it and now I am back where I was. In love and it’s the best feeling in the world.
I fell in love again with… ice skating. I love the feeling I get when my skates glide down the ice and the wind goes through my hair. I feel ecstatic when my skates touch the ice in the arena and everything around me becomes blurred. It’s only me and ice and music in the air. It feels like flying. No, it feels even better than that. It feels like finally getting free after a long time being locked away. Every lap I skate I feel even lighter and more powerful.
If you thought I will be talking about a guy – soz babes, but that probably won’t happen in a long time! I always loved ice skating. I admired all those girls who ice skated, they looked so graceful and like they were simply gliding. Ice skating fascinates me. I used to love it a lot and skate as much as I could, but during the years, I stopped. I started dancing, doing other activities and skating was left behind. But this winter changed it.
I took my skates and stood on the ice after 5 years of not skating. I was a bit clumsy at first and wobbly, but after few tries, I skated. And it felt so good. I remembered how fun it was and how much I enjoyed standing on the skates. It felt like I was in my element. And ever since that time I have been skating as much as I could. Night time skating, daytime skating. I did it all.
I may not learn how to do pirouettes and other difficult stunts because of my age now, but it doesn’t mean that I can’t enjoy an activity that is ice skating. At the moment, I am trying to learn how to skate backward (never knew how to do it) and do a little spin. And that’s enough for me. Well, at least for now.
Do you ice skate? How was your Valentine’s day?
