Japan really stole our hearts when we visited earlier this year. Here is a super fun video that shares a slice of that trip. Go to @mrjacobpatrick IGTV to see the full video!!! .

Scarcity: the state of being scarce or in short supply; shortage.
TIME. When I think of scarcity, I think of time. I think of how precious time is and how as I get older I seem to have less and less of it. Although I feel this way, I am very aware that I have the same amount of hours in the day now that I did when I was growing up spending my days catching caterpillars in Georgia. The funny thing about time is that it is incredibly consistent, it doesn’t cheat me out of minutes or show up late…I am the one who abuses my gift of time. Maybe if I slow down enough to be with it I will be able to allow it to carry me rather than trigger my rushed nature.
I also think of the word “success” and how my industry has affected me in ways that I have begun to believe that busyness is success and that down time has to be earned. I am slowly learning to take charge of my life and how I spend the minutes in my day rather than allowing my need to achieve to own me, but I know this will be a life long process of surrender.
I am realizing that scarcity tends to draw closer to me in the moments that I choose to operate out of fear. When fear enters in and I allow myself to be it’s student, it makes it very clear to me that I am not enough and so why should I believe that I have enough. Slowing down and learning to listen to my body, to listen to its movement and where my energy gets stuck, and to also listen to the sweetness of empty space and time is revealing abundance in my soul. I have enough, I am enough, and that is something that achieving will never remind me of. I want to make an impact in this lifetime, but I do not want my need to rush to confuse my idea of what is truly valuable. “On the days I want to run, I promise to walk slowly. I promise to keep my arms wide open leaving space for your eyes to enter into my heart and show me the perspective of my soul.”

Unity. United. Those words gave me a since of awe this week. I hear in my soul a voice that says, “We are always United.” Whether I feel in sync or as though my energy is strongly conflicting with what is around me. I heard that “I fit in my specific piece of the unit so well that sometimes I can’t see that I fit at all”. Maybe I don’t even need to know my place...I can just trust that our souls are together and collaborating always. Sometimes smooth and sweet, other times rough, random, and unsettling. .

We don’t get to work together very often, but we share such similar vision and heart for the type of honesty and connection we desire to communicate through our work. @mrjacobpatrick I’m so proud to be your life partner. 🙏🏼

FREEDOM. I think freedom is something that grows, kind of like love for another...I thought I loved my husband on our wedding day, but three years later I feel the love I currently embody for him is more than I have ever known. I hope that my capacity to experience a greater depth of love and freedom never stops surprising me as I become more open to them. A couple weeks ago, I know I felt freedom. To preface, I have performed on many stages and walked away feeling quite different each time. Sometimes proud, vulnerable, bleeding, laughing, crying, embarrassed, full of purpose, strong, connected, shameful, insecure, and sometimes I could even say free. Freedom is something that I don't believe can partner up with a soul if that person's level of awareness, judgement, and control are gripping their mind away from the present. I have always struggled with overthinking and personal doubt which in many shows has stolen my chance to be held by Freedom. A couple weeks ago, I decided to put on a show. I was the only performer and my audience was a sunflower. I danced, I laughed, I cried, I stood still, I felt the wind, I truly saw and was present with my surroundings, and then as I looked through the trees I saw a young girl named Maggie and her father at a picnic table watching me. I thought freedom lived in a space where I could control the thoughts and judgements of what is around me by choosing to only surround myself in my safest place/ nature, but what I realized is that freedom is in my own mind. Freedom is a trust in myself, and a trust that I am being held by the divine, in which together I am a reminder of awe and a wave of relatability if I allow myself to truly be seen. I gave sweet little Maggie my sunflower and thanked her for watching me with such an open heart. That is a moment I will cherish forever. Freedom met me right where I was and showed me that it will never leave, I just have to be willing to trust long enough to get to hold it back.

Peace & Harmony. Respect. Purity. Tranquility. Japan truly moved me.
There is a love and sense of honor in the air that continues to inspire my view of the world and how I live in it.

If I’m honest, I don’t usually look forward to getting on an airplane. I fly a lot and that exhaustion can really weigh me down, but once I am in the sky I find so much space and time. Space and time that I don’t always make when I am home. One of my favorite things is to peak out of the window and be reminded just how small I am. I am so moved by nature. It will always be one of my greatest teachers.
This is a Cessna, a little different than the airplane I am usually on. ✈️ @mrjacobpatrick and I explored Doubtful Sound in NZ a year and a half ago and it was breathtaking. NZ is one of my favorite places I have visited to date. 🙃 GO!!!! 📸@mrjacobpatrick .

In 59 years, I will turn 87 on 7/7/77. I hope I see that day. I hope there is joy in my eyes and deep wisdom on my skin. The world has so much to teach me and I hope I embody it. I hope the deepest cave of my heart stays soft enough for my child self to explore freely. I hope my calm is thick and my ability to witness is home to others. My spoon, I will forever be holding you, but I do hope you’re still holding me too. I hope our love story feels like hope to the ones who need it. I hope my curiosity grows more wild than my fear and my judgement continues to teach me acceptance. I hope tea time is what wakes me up and stillness is my truest friend. I hope on that day I am surrounded by nature as God whispers again, “You are spirit and always have been.” Happy birthday to me!

@dancemakersinc faculty, collective, and staff, I am so proud of what we are building together. A place for so many hearts to call home and safe space for those hearts to be seen, to truly see others in return, and understand their value beyond movement. My heart has always craved to be a safe place for others to feel that they belong as they are and together we are doing that. Thank you for trusting me and valuing me, for giving me space to explore and discover. #ttjtour
