Lately? Well, for a good while I’ve been very strong in my faith. God has given me many affirmations of his love and how he is always there. Not just there when I need him, but at all times. Everything I do now, I look at all the aspects of it and what God is trying to tell me. And so, I have given myself more to him easily.I let him take his will upon me and that’s what makes me so amazed by his works. It’s beautiful knowing that when you give yourself fully to God you experience more fully his blessings. It gives you a spiritual high like no other.
First of all, I would like to say Thank you God. Thank you for blessing me with the ability to teach and watch people grow as dancers and as people. About one week ago, I was able to attend PRECON in L.A. We competed in the dance division. Let me just say, it was the most joyful and intense week in summer so far. I got to bond with such amazing brothers and sisters, that I am still oh so very overwhelmed .
During that week, I was given the position to work with a good friend on choreography. We shared our ideas, and then we began teaching. We would alternate, and so I was both the teacher and the student. I got to learn from him and the rest of the group. For those days that I taught, I began seeing the progress in each one of the members. Some learned the pieces the first day and some caught up two days before. And just wow !! I was able to see flowers grow before my eyes. That’s what they seemed like to me. I was so blessed and overwhelmed with being able to take part in this journey. My goal had been to inspire and I made sure that each member knew that. Inspiring is a much bigger reward than winning, because when you have inspired, you’ve managed to touch someone’s heart. And that right there is such a warming feeling. We wanted to make a statement which was that:
Having flaws is not bad, but instead a symbol that we are not perfect and that that one imperfection is what unites us all.
This message hit hard to each one of us. This whole experience hit hard in itself. Right before walking on stage we had a group pep-talk, and I couldn’t help but cry. I cried because I was extremely proud of the brothers and sisters standing around me, because they tried so hard, because they believed in our vision, and because they made that vision come to life.
