🌺😘😍Watching these ladies growing up have been one of the best journey in my life. We’ve been through a lot in our 15+ years. They are true gifts to the world. I am so proud of them for tackling so many difficult tasks at such a young age. I want them to wake up every morning with the thought that something wonderful will happen, if not, I want them to know that they are capable of creating anything their hearts desire.
I am grateful and thankful to my ancestors for creating this thousand years old dance forms, without this intriguing art, our path may have not crossed.
We may not be rooted by the same blood but we are bonded by souls, love, kinship, and age-old traditions. Blessed to be able to perform with them this year.
Ladies and Khmer Arts’ families, you guys and gals are the Golden Khmer thread to the meaning of my life, thank you for keeping me cheerful and providing me the strength to continue my humble existence. 🙏🏽💕💋

✨Fearless Friday✨
I have this magnet on my fridge that I’ve had for a million years that reads, “Do one thing every day that scares you.” I’m not sure who to attribute that quote to, but it spoke to me then, and serves as a daily reminder today.
What would you do if you weren’t afraid? What can you imagine is on the other side of your fears? When I notice thoughts and feelings of fear creep up in my mind and into my body, I get curious. What am I so afraid of? What’s the worst that can happen if I (fill in the blank)? What are my emotions telling me? Is it true? How might I feel after I (fill in the blank). What if I count down 5-4-3-2-1 and just do it?! Be fearless. If even for a few seconds. Push yourself outside of your comfort zone and see what happens. The more we listen to our fears, the more power we give them. The more we push ourselves through the feelings of fear, the more we grow. When we acknowledge what fear is telling us (“speak in front of a large group and you will surely die”) and we do it anyway, we build courage. So, what is one thing you can do today that scares you? Please share before and/or after you do it. You never know who you may inspire by commenting and sharing. Wishing you all a fearless weekend 🙏✨💕

Do one thing every day that scares you 💙

Maybe there is something you're afraid to say....Someone you're afraid to love....Or somewhere you're afraid to go 💚

The thought might petrify you and if it does........its because it matters!! How will you know if it's the right decision if you never make it 💜

In the end we will only regret the chances we didn't take.........and the decisions we took too long to make 💛

You are in control of your own happiness❤

Happy magical Monday my beautiful friends 💜
It is day 7 (the last day) of #leotardvixens
And we are playing in backbend
I chose #wildthing in the wild wind 🤣🌴🧜‍♀️
I want to thank you all for the love and shiny light you have given and for allowing a safe place to play. I’ve always admired leotard challenges but always felt way too nervous to participate. Even this one, I had taken all my pictures and the night before the challenge began I couldn’t sleep and I was panicking big time. I had to tell myself, “you don’t have to post them, it’s ok, see how the wifi is in the morning 🙈”
I woke up and although I felt very nervous, the gallery and all of your bravery and beauty helped me out 💜 so thank you all. I send you much love and I adore all of your love 💜💜💜
Peace beautiful vixens 🙏
Tiff, Lisa, Illsie 😘😘😘
So in love with you all 💋💋💋
Gorgeous hosts
Generous sponsors

Life should be scary, wonderfully, heart racing, joyously scary!

"Don’t worry about the future. Or worry, but know that worrying is as effective as trying to solve an algebra equation by chewing bubble gum. The real troubles in your life are apt to be things that never crossed your worried mind, the kind that blindside you at 4 p.m. on some idle Tuesday.

Do one thing every day that scares you.


Don’t be reckless with other people’s hearts. Don’t put up with people who are reckless with yours.


Don’t waste your time on jealousy. Sometimes you’re ahead, sometimes you’re behind. The race is long and, in the end, it’s only with yourself." -Mary Schmich

🦋Therapy Thursday🦋
How often does fear get in the way of your happiness? How many times have you stopped yourself from doing something because you were fearful of what others may think? Why are we so afraid of being judged by other people that it dulls our light? Do you know who doesn’t give a shit what other people think? Animals. Trust me, an eagle isn’t wasting his time thinking, “oh how I wish I could fly like that guy ... I’m not as fast as him ...” And small children. Children have very clear goals and those goals are to play, explore and create. When my boys go to the park, they find another kid having fun and ask, “can I play, too?” And off they go. They don’t stop and say, “Momma, that boy is wearing the new Nikes so I’m sure he doesn’t want to play with me .... that girl is probably smarter than me so forget the whole thing.” Now, as adults, we have grown older and wiser but we forget the importance of play. Play elicits adaptability and teaches us to be creative. Play also helps to develop cognitive emotional maturity. While I like to think that we evolve as we age, I am struck by how many of my adult clients consistently fear the judgment of their peers. This profound and deep seeded fear can cause us to be conservative in our thinking. So, my question to you is this: What would you do if you weren’t afraid? If you didn’t give a fuck what other people thought? If you realized the truth that what other people think of you is absolutely none of your business. Think about it. When you start to hear those voices in your head telling you “don’t rock the boat,” or “keep playing small,” or that you “are not good enough,” realize that those limiting beliefs are NOT true, never were, and they are OLD. These implicit beliefs get stuck in the body, and just like your computer, need to be updated with new software. Update the old tapes with new positive messages. Life is short. If you are not happy, make a change. Do one thing today that scares you. Play! Stop anticipating failure and dare to fail better. Start playing bigger. Shine bright!
Thank you @mariannewilliamson for the inspiration (from A Return to Love)

“Behind every dancer who believes in them-self is a teacher who believed in them first.” I am thankful for my teacher who provided the opportunity to pass on her passion for the art of Khmer dance to me.

One of my many "work in progress" pieces. Since working an "art job" full time for almost 5 years now, i have not found the focus to commit to my work in the studio like i once (so happily) did. 😏 This has been weighing on me for some time now. I read a few quotes yesterday, by writer Mary Schmich..that inspired me to step outside of my comfort zone and "do something that scares me" Today, i became vulnerable and shared a current "unfinished" piece of work with my peers...like i once always had. I felt hesitation, but overcame it by telling myself that it was good for me. I had not prepared myself for the insulting comments made behind my back. Which btw, WERE ACTUALLY made behind my back as i stood in one room over...The "What the HELL is this?!" "It looks unfinished" well duh..then...wait for it...."Should we paint OVER it?!" Seriously, you guys...i felt like i was in the Twilight Zone. It was hurtful, it was cruel, it was uncalled for. I was incensed. But if there is anything that i can take from this..it is to stand for what i believe in. MAKE artwork that I BELIEVE in. From MY experiences and no one else's. I'm proud and I am happy that YES i did feel uncomfortable at first...but OVERCAME it. I did something that scared me. I was brave and i will continue to be BRAVE. Sidenote: said comments were made by a Trump supporting, sexist, self loathing, sad and lonely person.. So REALLY i guess i shouldn't be that surprised...but it still sucks, man. #standupforwhatyoubelievein #beproud #bebrave #hatersgonnahate #doyou #artlife #femaleartist #doonethingthatscaresyou #liveandletlive #marybaldaart #makeartnotwar
