When I put this necklace on this morning, it made me smile. It brought me back to the day I bought it, from a artist at an outdoor market in Valparaiso,Chile. I had been touring the world via cruise ship and making money pursuing my passion....the little keepsakes and art I've accumulated along the way remind me of my adventures in which I'm so grateful I had the confidence to pursue. Today at work, a passionate dancer came in...I spoke with her and her mother on how rewarding pursuing a dance career can feel. I talked to the girl that's currently studying at Joffery in NYC how it's all about connection, hard work, the pursuit and marketing yourself as an artist. I remember what it felt like auditioning, rehearsing, comparing myself, picking apart my ability, perfecting, getting gigs and working to grow. I spoke with her about how confidence is key, and to just GO FOR IT. I feel like I lit a fire within her and that she took away something from my story. This also made me smile.
