6 Life Lessons Dance has Taught Me

"God make me so uncomfortable that I will do the very thing I fear." ~ Ruby Dee
Hey hey sweetie pies, happy Thursday! I spent a great part of my morning reflecting. I spent that time reflecting on things that dance has taught me. I have so many things that I can honestly credit towards being a dancer and growing up in a traditional studio setting. I took dance where it often challenged me but in the process, I ended up learning so much about myself. A place that I learned some significant life lessons. These lessons and/or experiences that I am going to share today come from different time periods of my dance journey so far. 
You can't win them all As a dancer, I have been aware of rejection but didn't really had to deal with it in my dance career until I got to college. I remember going on auditions and feeling super confident that I would advance and I didn't. I used to take it so hard back then! I would cry my little eyes out. (Once I was in private of course)…

5 Ways to Renew Your Confidence - Just in time for Spring!

"Wanna fly, you got to give up the shit that weighs you down." ~ Toni Morrison
Have you been feeling somewhat unmotivated these days? Has your creativity blown a fuse recently? While some don't believe that weather can influence your mood, I definitely beg to differ. When the weather is nice, it can definitely improve my mood. I have been experiencing a bit of a creative slump and I think part of that may be credited to trying to kick the winter blues.
Any other women willing to admit that they are not "on" 24/7? I mean I don't always have the answers, my life isn't always sunshine and rainbows and I definitely do not lead a perfect life. I have phases (if you will) where I don't feel completely confident all the time or 100% sure of myself. I think naturally as women we sometimes question ourselves and the decisions that we make. I definitely have my "seasons" where I don't feel as confident and I have to find a way to shake myself b…

4 Ways to Increase Your Personal Value

"If one is lucky, a solitary fantasy can totally transform one million realities." ~ Maya Angelou

I am a firm believer in adding to yourself and your personal set of skills. In this day and age, it is almost imperative that you possess multiple skill sets as it better prepares you for the working world. In the working world, some of the most successful people are those who are multi-talented or multifaceted. While most feel like they are only good at 1-3 things at best, you can become an expert in any field. Individuals are creating new things every single day. New blogs, new podcasts, new brands, new businesses - all while at least a fraction of those creators may not have had all the answers before starting. To the realists out there, this seems quite far fetched because ideally we like to know all the information that there's to know before starting. Believe it or not, you may be closer to starting or creating something new and not even know it! Whether you are looki…
