REAL TALK #FBF

Exactly 11 weeks ago, I injured myself during the show- fracturing the cuboid in my right foot, sprained a handful of ligaments, and messed my ankle pretty good- ALL forcing me to sit on the bench for a few weeks. Missed 8 shows. Played the โ€œwhat ifโ€™sโ€ game in my head hundreds of times. Then finally, I accepted it.
For all my fellow dancers, movers, shakers...getting hurt is terrifying. We donโ€™t talk about it. We pretend the possibility is impossible because this is our livelihood. It pays our bills. But more than anything, it fills our soul cup. So, what happens when it happens?

This time I got lucky. I was surrounded by the best team a girl could ask for. My tour management team got me an X-ray within the hour, our promoter got me an MRI the next morning and access to an all-star doctor the very next day, our touring Physical Therapist was there to organize a consistent, diligent, RELENTLESS active recovery routine, my boss told me to take my time healing, and the tour team of dancers, wardrobe and crew all helped create a show that could exist with me on the sidelines while I got better. All these things aligned and I was able to return to my job in 2.5 weeks.
Thatโ€™s fast. Hard work. Team work. And Permission to not work made my return faster than it should have been.
I guess I am sharing all of this because everything takes a village. It is okay to ask for help. And know that things do get better...and sometimes, a mere 11 weeks later, what feels like the worst thing, is just a small thing that happened that one time (except all the extra strengthening exercises I have to do everyday). *Hit me up if you need advice on ankle recovery. @drdavept has it pretty dialed in

THANK YOU!!! My heart is exploding with gratitude for all of the love and birthday wishes. What they say is true...every year gets better and better. I feel so lucky to be surrounded by such strength, courage, spirit, curiosity, artistry and love from my family, my friends and every single person I have met along the way that has so graciously open their hearts.
If time is simply how you live your life...then this coming year I vow to soak up the moments with fearless adventure, a get-up-and-try-again attitude, less tech with more talk and a whole lot of laughing. Let me know if you want to ride into the burning sun...we only get one shot at all of this, so count me in. X

Dad!!! It is that rare moment when we share the same birthday!!!! Crazy what time travel does!

I love you more than words...you taught me how to love and about how I deserve to be loved. You showed me and continue to show me that hard work and hustle pay off. You inspire me to always do the right thing even if it means it is going to be the hard thing. And you have the best worst jokes in all the land. I canโ€™t wait to celebrate together in New Zealand in a couple months! In the meantime, enjoy your new journey around the sun. I love you oh so very very very much, papa bear!

Happy 4th ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ from Australia! Cheers to BBQโ€™s, beer, fireworks, family time, love, hope...and the chance โ€œto be the dream the dreamers dreamed...โ€

PERTH!!! We are back...and you are up first! Canโ€™t wait to rock โ€˜n roll through Australia- it has been too long since we partied down under. See you tonight!
