I'm someone who's undergone a complete life/self overhaul. I'm now a professional in my dream job, balancing an amazing relationship, a healthy body, a healthy self image, my passions, my family and surrounding myself with good people. It's hard, not gonna lie. But I'm here to help, to inspire and say "you're not alone."

Me, today. 4.27.12: Carpe the hell out of this Diem!

Stickynote Quote Worthy

Great attitude to live by!  We must all come to terms with our mortality and that some day too soon we will die. Live as much as you can in every day. Wake up as if it was a gift and live like it was on purpose.

I woke up a full hour before my alarm too excited to finish my work week strong and my day even stronger. The grand opening of a new break dance training facility called Bboy Factory was tonight. Qualifier competitions were held last weekend to ensure tonight’s battles were top notch – and they were unbelievable! The top 8 battled 1 on 1 with a chosen 8 from around the globe: Russia, Korea, Canada, and across the U.S. The energy and togetherness is why I love breaking so much. We are a few bonded together by love of expression through dance, compelled to movement by music. After the jam ended everyone wanted to go home and I wanted to keep dancing.

So I did something I’ve never done. Something pretty scary – I went by myself to an old school hip hop night at a local bar. It may sound “sad” to dance by yourself, but I was so freed! I danced by myself only for myself and no one else. I didn’t care who was watching, what they thought or how I looked. I just wanted to move to music. It was an amazing experience.  Today I Carpe’d the hell out of this diem. Did you?
