Thursday’s Thoughts: The Bus of Life

Empower (v) make (someone) stronger and more confident, especially in controlling their life and claiming their rights. This dance season has consisted of many growing experiences for me.  This past year I was empowered to believe in myself and not to let others’ opinions dictate my choices, well-being, purpose, or self-worth.  I have been aContinue reading “Thursday’s Thoughts: The Bus of Life”

Live, Love, Dance: “Sorry, not today, I am too busy!” ;)

When I was a sophomore in high school I went on a few dates with a senior boy that was oh so cute!  (Now I am sure I have caught the attention of all my teenage students…LOL)  He seemed wonderful on paper… captain of the football team, a cute smile, blue eyes.  But, I quicklyContinue reading “Live, Love, Dance: “Sorry, not today, I am too busy!” ;)”

Live Love Dance: Tuesday’s Thoughts :)

A little over a month ago I got into a car accident.  It has been challenging because the tasks I completed daily to run my small business were suddenly difficult.  Multitasking, writing emails, verbally communicating, remembering to go to an appointment… all difficult!  This process has taught me not only to give myself grace, butContinue reading “Live Love Dance: Tuesday’s Thoughts :)”
