Oof!

Cannot tell you how many times I've either done this or felt this-in the proverbial Oooff! sense. Even if I know I'm capable half the time I wonder if I really know what I'm doing. But I think that's how a lot of people feel, especially when exploring a whole new territory. So, if we all fall, the question is are you the type who gets back up and keeps dancing? (I know I don't want to just stay all sprawled out with my tutu hanging over my head.)

So funny and true. Don't know how many times I've said, "I'll get right on it as soon as I get this tutu out of my eyes."

Poor little owl.Very cute illustration.

Very cute! Just a little ego bruising. If it makes her feel any better, I once tripped on the step thing in a full step aerobics class and fell on my butt. :)

This is so adorable! I will find a way to get back on my feet. I had a experience where I was totally failed with zero confident to keep me going. However, I eventually found a way to get back on my feet,and keep going. So far,so good!!!! ^_________^

Thanks,Dale, Beegirl, Studio Lolo and Katrin!
Erin, I'm constantly getting the tutu out of my eyes:) (you made me laugh!)
Cindy D., that did make her feel better! I once (ONCE) did a similar class-in the FRONT. Not a good place for me to be.
And thank you Nancy, Ale, K.H. and Sue.
Little Ni Studio-Yes! Keep going! Going thru stuff that makes us lose out confidence stinks!! Wish it weren't the case but moving forward is the only way to go, right? :)
And thank you to Funael, Irina, Dosankodebbie, and Tatjana.
You all made Ollie smile!
