“It’s not the destination, it’s the journey.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson Life can cruise on by without a backwards glance. The fact that it’s already 2022 blows my mind! Over the past several years, I finished high school, got a college degree, started a business, got married, started a family, and pursued my passion on the side. It can be hard to find purpose and meaning in your profession and identity, but I find that true contentment comes from the process of working toward my goals. Attaining them is secondary, icing on the cake. For further clarification, refer to the Pixar movie Soul. 😉 Read more>>

Never been big on quotes or affirmations, but one that I always think of is from Citizenship in a Republic by Theodore Roosevelt: “It is not the critic who counts: not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles or where the doer of deeds could have done better.

I know how it feels to be broken and healed through God. The courage to stand, advocate, and serve others is my purpose. I am the original, and my mark will be made on the Earth. The means to me I will transition to Glory empty! I want to be ALL and do ALL God has called me to be. I love this because I know my purpose and assignment. Read more>>

Yes, the quote I live by and have seen to be such a positive force on my journey is “when there is a will, there’s a way.” Let me tell you I have hit rock bottom, been mistreated by studios that I have given my all to, didn’t have a means of transportation, and lost my jobs unexpectedly due to covid hitting in 2019. For some reason the quote resonated to me being that I still had the will to teach I still had the will to want to help others, I still wanted to be creative and I just got really determine to make it happen. So what I did is really took some time to think about it and figured well , all of the dance studios are being hit so hard right now because people do not want to be in crowded places with other people due to Covid.
