I spent the entire weekend watching young girls ignite their light. I get goose bumps every time I watch my daughters dance studio perform in front of a full auditorium. They have all come so far over the years. It gives me shivers to see such confidence. My daughter started out being the little girl who had to watch everyone else to make sure she was doing the right move. This year she didn’t just dance, she rocked it! Her confidence allowed her to feel the music and dance like no one was watching!
This is the song she listens to on our way to dance competitions. She told me she likes it because it inspires you to be yourself. She was brighter than the moon!
I am so proud of you and all your friends for being yourselves. You’re amazing just the way you are! xo
Vancouver’s very own Robson Street was hit by imagine1day’s official ‘Dancing in the Street’ flashmob on Saturday! If you knew about this event in advance you were able to rehearse on line if you wanted to take part in this choreographed dance! It wasn’t just about keeping the party going that the Opening Ceremonies of the Olympics started, imagine1day is a nonprofit organization that is striving to bring primary education to all children in Ethiopia, Africa by 2020. This is one of the ways they draw attention to their cause. And what better place to do it while the streets are literally filled with thousands of optimistic Olympic visitors who are ready, willing and able to take part in any peaceful celebration.
Athletics and education go hand in hand if you ask me. An athletes drive, dedication and discipline along with education is what allows them to reach their goals. With access to an education anything is possible, even a Gold metal at the Olympics! imagine1day allows you to decide where you put your money to help with elements of eduction, whether it’s the roof of a classroom, the water system or educational tools, 100% of your contribution will fund the children’s education project of your choice.

“You Grow Old cause you stop doing things.” ~ I wrote about Body Image and since then I have been getting messages from the Universe to STOP with the negative thoughts that seem to be deep within my DNA. This is what you can do, if you change your perception, you will see by this inspiring video! Thanks for sharing it with me Mom!
My ‘Gusto Post Card’ was my first message: (inspiring postcards sent to you via email each day when you sign up)
” You know how wise people reach a certain point in their lives and realize it actually doesn’t matter what anyone thinks of them? They just sort of grow beyond caring about that, and they start caring a lot more about what they think of themselves? And then they decide they’re going to do what they want to do and be who they want to be and live their lives as they see fit and love every second of it? Well, that wise person lives inside of you. Let that certain pivotal point in your life be today. Your number-one fan, Gusto And oh…Be you. Live Fearlessly!
My 8 year old daughter is a dancer in competitions, perhaps one day she too will dance with her young grandson!
