Cirque du Soleil: Iris

It’s good to be back! I took a little hiatus this week as I had a bit of a tough time. One of those situations where it just would have been better to keep my hands off the key board. I try to bring just my happy thoughts to the blog table. Of course I like to be honest and open about where I’m at, and I hope you’ll always do the same, but it’s almost always better to not take personal drama to the blogosphere.

But I’m back now, happier than ever, because my boyfriend took me on the most amazing date Friday night to celebrate my birthday. It’d be forever since I’d seen a Cirque du Soleil show and he took me to the Kodak Theater (row 10—so close to the stage) to see the show, Iris. With an emphasis on the film industry, I especially loved the historical undertones of the world of entertainment. I haven’t smiled so big in such a long time.

I highly encourage you to go see a Cirque du Soleil if you get the chance. It never gets old no matter how many times you see it. The acrobatics are my favorite part, especially when they soar over the crowd held up by mere ribbons. You walk away with a whole new respect for what the human body is capable of. We shouldn’t take our strength, our flexibility, or our agility for granted, no matter how much or how little of it we have. (And if you’re like me, it’s not much in comparison to these people!)

I hope you can experience the happiness that I still have by going to see a show. Whether you’re drawn to these shows or you’re dragged there, give it a chance. People can be pretty amazing.

Keep shining,

The Sunny Girl, Lauren Cook

  1. I’ve been browsing online more than 2 hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours.
    It’s pretty worth enough for me. In my view, if all site owners and
    bloggers made good content as you did, the internet will be a lot more useful than ever before.
