This happened to me even earlier than my previous story. I was 4 years old. I lived in Ukraine and felt myself really bored. I was watching TV when I saw a concert of, I already don't remember who. In that concert I spotted small girls of my age dancing and then I thought " I'm not worth than them, why I won't give it a try?". And so was it. For the next week I could say that my mom was about to kill herself from amount of nagging that fell on her about me going to a dancing school. And who do you think won? ME! The very next day my mom signed me for dancing classes and on the day after I was already on my way to my first dancing lesson. I was so exited! I've imagined that I will step into glowing lights and after couple of lessons I would be on my way to a world competition, in which, I expected to beat everyone. But for my great surprise there were no glowing lights and no cheering voices of happiness, only three other little girls like me or even younger and a teacher. She places me in a row with other girls and announced that lesson have started. When we started to repeat moves that she showed to us I found them ridiculously stupid. But there was something that I've never felt before, I was SHY! I ran out of the room and found my mom sitting outside. I told her " Mom I can't do this! Please take me home". But she told that it was all right and pushed me back into the room. However, nothing changed, I was still too shy to repeat the moves and I ran out again. All of this been happening over and over again for couple more times until my mom had a little mercy for me and finally took me home. Honestly telling you that I'm still regretting that choice that I've made, because after that I still didn't get chance to learn.
So, lesson that I've learned from this story was that you never have to back up from anything that you've started, for example I've decided to share these stories for you and I will not stop even if you will be tell me that they are extremely boring! I think I also learned that being shy is not a bad thing, but you don't have to let it stand in your way to your desires.
