A lot of things happen as you get older. Two of the most common experiences are a painful nostalgia for the carefree nature of childhood and the horrifying awareness that there are young people who are better at something than you'll ever be at anything.
This video is a reminder of both of those things.
At just two-and-a-half years old, this little ice dancer appears to be having a blast. She does her best to take cues from her parent/coach, but she seems more interested in simply enjoying her time whirling around on the ice. And who could blame her? The smile on her face is a reminder of the days when the biggest concerns in life were ice cream and our favorite cartoons. Those were better times.
Of course, after a trip down memory lane, us grown-ups can't help but realize the more amazing part of this video: that girl is basically a toddler and yet she is still skating better than some adults can walk.
Ice skating is no easy feat to begin with, let alone for a human who only started walking within the last 18 months. Better still, she can do spins and skate on one foot while holding her leg in the air. Try that the next time you visit your local rink and let us know how it goes (spoiler alert: it will not go well).
Simply put, this girl is an adorable reminder of all the things we wish we had in life. Maybe it's sad to say, but we all have to admit that we're jealous.
