Exciting Things!

In News by Natalie

A lot of exciting things happened this weekend! After a little schedule re-arranging we moved on to Washington D.C. I got to teach in the Junior room at the Monsters of Hip Hop Workshop. This was not only a first for me but also kind of a big deal for me for many reasons. I’ve grown up surrounded by amazing teachers and mentors that have helped me along the path of my personal dance journey. Most of them I met at dance conventions. And to think that some of those young kids that I got to teach this weekend will remember having class with me well into their teenage years makes my heart warm. I have always known that I love teaching. It makes me feel like I am contributing to the future generations and hopefully inspiring them along the way. It helps a little that I love kids haha. But I genuinely had a blast and can’t wait to do it all over again real soon :]

This journey has so many layers. I feel like I grow older and wiser with everyday that passes. I feel calm and at peace with the thought that I am exactly where I am supposed to be right now. Living in the now is one of the hardest things for me sometimes. But once you take a second to stop, breathe and release all the worry you may have bottled up about the future… you’ll be able to think clearly and act accordingly.

Like with anything… all of these things are much easier said than done. But I strive everyday to be grateful and remind myself that I am where i’m supposed to be and I can only control my own thoughts and actions. What others do with their time and efforts is not up to me.
