Enjoy the Ride

After a hectic road to get here, I am so pleased with how the performance turned out last night. I choreographed two separate dances within an incredibly short time span, and they both turned out so much better than I had ever imagined. I was faced with many challenges and issues that caused me to completely rework my initial vision, but I quickly recovered and my dancers pulled off an exceptional performance. I danced a few ballet variations and contemporary group pieces as well, and I am content with them. Of course, they were definitely not perfect, but it made me absolutely elated to have been approached by audience members after the show. It makes me so glad to know that they enjoyed witnessing my contribution to this beautiful art. I always remember how fortunate I am to dance under those lights, and I thank The Lord for giving me the opportunity and ability to do what I do.

Dance.

Reggae… Kiwi and Olive were absolutely thrilled when I turned on my Reggae playlist this morning, and they chirped along in complete delight. This has always been their favorite music genre, and they never seem to get tired of summertime vibes.

Before I started to play the songs out loud, I was quite interested to see how they would react to my earbuds…. Unfortunately, Kiwi didn’t want to have anything to do with this little adventure, but Olive thoroughly enjoyed herself! I decided to snap a picture of this brave little bird to share with you all this morning. Happy Saturday!

What if… What if…

I am constantly asking myself what if…

WHAT IF, I stop asking what if?

I would stop drowning in worry, thoughts of uncertainty, and I would have the confidence to follow my heart. What if…
