I am more than a
Number in an audition,
Number on a scale,
Number of pirouettes I can do,
Number of shoes I go through a week,
Number of calories I eat a day,
Number of parts I get,
Number of times I failed,
Number of relationships sacrificed,
Number of hours in the studio.
I am more than a number,
I am me.

When you get what you want as you struggle for self and the world makes you queen for a day, just go to the mirror and look at yourself and see what that woman has to say. For it isn’t your father or mother or husband who judgement upon you must pass. The person whose verdict counts most in your life is the one staring back from the glass. She’s the person to please, never mind all the rest, for she’s with you clear up to the end. And you’ve passed your most dangerous, difficult test, if the woman in the glass is your friend. You may fool the whole world down the pathway of life, and get pats on your back as you pass, but your final reward will be heartache and tears, if you’ve cheated the woman in the glass.
