“Be the Change that you want to see in the world”  Mahatma Gandhi

I like this quote because, it points the finger back to yourself….this applies to everything. To creativity, to the way we live and treat each other, to being yourself…

But I want to focus on something specific.

 We can’t change others, we can’t force others to be nice, and sensitive towards us. We can’t force others, to treat us the way we want to to be treated. But what we can do, is treat others the way we want to be treated.

 You could stand for something and stand strong on it….you could set the tone for your surroundings and how you want others to be when they are around you.

As dancers sometimes I see and I think, we feel that we need to be timid because we really want that job, we really want others to like us and work with us, we really want to play the game, and we really want to be in the in crowd of dancers, even when we know that the in crowd isn’t always the healthy crowd…we really want to dance, we really want to make it…even if it means tearing down your morals, tearing down the essence of someones being..

So heres something we could and do it together….”Be the Change you want to see in the world” That’s my new mantra…..don’t focus on what A,B,C, and D is doing, be that change…..
