I think life is like a dance partner—sometimes it sweeps us off in a glittering waltz, and our head spins with happiness. Sometimes it steps on our toes and causes us pain. You have to accept every part of the dance. Not just hold on to the moments of happiness but also take advantage of the times when nothing is working to ask yourself what you can learn from them. And while you’re learning, you reinvent your life, you begin it anew. There’s no particular age to start again. The main thing is to stay alive, really alive. To learn, to challenge yourself, to move ahead. Not to sit on the sidewalk feeling sorry for yourself, but get up and move on. To waltz with life!
