OMG this is life changing…well not really

20 Mar

Hey lovely people.

Got some good news for ya and I got some not so good news..like life changing news…wellllll it’s really not that bad.

Good News

I’ve set up shop somewhere else in cyber space, and it’s around the corner..no need to travel far, just a CLICK AWAY.

My current blog is called Dance Live Inspire but my domain is kayannward.wordpress.com, so I decided to start a new blog..it’s still called Dance Live Inspire. except, the domain is DanceLiveInspire.Wordpress.com. Also this blog is dedicated to dance, everything dance and only dance. It’s not the conventional blog..

Dance Live Inspire

A blog that connects, educates, develops and highlights the creative freedom of dancers and dance lovers in the commercial & entertainment industry.

It’s not censored, it’s truthful and there are lots more to come from this.

So what’s the not so good news you may ask

Well, I will be changing my current blog..I will have everything from my website at kayannward.com and I will have a personal blog dedicated to helping ladies look and feel good from the inside out..and may I add this comes with all the randomness, craziness and misbehaving antics that I’m known for. I figured the best way to help others, which I really truly love to do, is to be myself 100% of the time.

So you see the bad news is not so terrible and life threatening after all.

I will continue to post some great stuff on this blog, but it won’t be for long. And I promise you when I move my personal blog, you will be notified.

So here is what I need you to do..if you love dance, then go over to Dance Live Inspire and check it out. CLICK HERE

And thank you in advance..:)

Talk to you lovelies later.

Quote on Fear

12 Dec

To overcome fear and break the cycle, you have to be willing to recognize that you will spend much of your life making mistakes.

The bad news is that if you’ve been inactive for a long time, getting started is hard to do. The good news is that as soon as you start moving, it gets easier.

John C Maxwell

Love this.

Talented..with a bad attitude

4 Dec

It’s good to be talented, I mean that is amazing..but to be talented with a bad attitude and a chip on your shoulder is just not called for.

Sometimes we are where we are in life not because we are not worthy of better things and better opportunities. It is usually because of our attitude, how we treat people, how we allow people to treat us, and our out look on life.

Talents are meant to share with the world, thinking that the world owes you something, is not a good enough reason to be in a better place.

So when I found this quote on change, and attitude, I had to share.

“Change requires action. If you wait until you feel like it to try to change your attitude, you will never change. You have to act yourself into changing”

Quote from John C Maxwell

Quotes to start a new month

1 Dec

Quote # 1

We are either the masters or the victims of our attitudes. It is a matter of personal choice. Who we are today is the result of choices made yesterday. Tomorrow we will become what we choose today. To change means to choose to change.

Quote # 2

If you’re committed, a failure doesn’t mean that you’ll never succeed. It just means you will take longer. Commitment makes you capable of failing forward until you reach your goals.

Both quotes from John C Maxwell

When was the last time you took a rest day?

28 Nov

When was the last time you took a day or a weekend to just relax and do nothing, I mean absolutely nothing, just lay back  and enjoy time, sleep in, eat food, spend time with the people who care about you, laugh and have a good time..stress not invited.

I did that this weekend, and it was amazing. It was my birthday on November 27th, so it happened at the perfect time.

Yes I stepped out to run a few errands and do some work related stuff, but overall the feeling of just relaxing felt great.

Do your self a favor and take a day or a weekend to just chill out.

Do nothing that consists of you stressing out or bringing negative vibes into your life. You will thank yourself.

If you can’t take a day or a weekend then take a few hours, but I would hope that you can find a day out of your schedule to care for yourself. If your finding it hard to take a day to rest, then you may have to sit down and think  about somethings.

So go ahead take a rest day, and do not feel guilty about it, you deserve it, you will thank yourself for doing it, and you will feel much better and much more prepared to carry out the rest of your week.

Love this picture, we can all take pointers from the diva above..lol

Tips to get the most out of your group exercise class

24 Nov

Quick tips to help you get the most out of your next group exercise class

Keep your core tight throughout the workout. You may get carried away, with how amazing you feel and how great the dance move and or exercise is, or you may be tired and your muscles are fatigued, whatever the reason, don’t lose focus of what you’re doing. Keep your core engaged and tight through out your entire workout.

Watch the instructors que, for movement or direction change. This is the best way to pick up on what exercise is coming up next. Sometimes the music is too loud for the instructor to give you a verbal cue, so paying attention to non verbal cues are helpful to let you know what movement and which direction is coming up next.

Don’t forget to breathe. Often times, participants get so tense, because they are gasping for air, or they are so focus on mastering the exercise. Yes your going to get tired, and yes you want to pay attention to your technique, but don’t forget to breathe.

You don’t want to injure yourself, so pay attention to your body. If a body part starts to hurt you, and you know or you’re not sure if it’s because of the exercise you’re doing then STOP. You know your body more than you may think, Listen to your body and the signs that it gives to you. If you have had any injury that may affect your workout, make sure you ask your doctor if it’s safe to participate in the fitness class.

Drink water before, during and after your workout

Push yourself, if you know you can go harder, don’t be afraid to raise the bar for yourself.

Set a goal for yourself, give yourself a rating system, 1-10. 1 means you did poorly and 10 means you did great. Give yourself a rating after each workout, it helps you stay on track, puts you in the driver’s seat, and you hold yourself accountable for your own success.

Stretch. Take time after the class or a few minutes when you get home to stretch your muscles, your soul will thank you for it.

Don’t forget to congratulate yourself. You showed up, you participated, and you completed the workout.

Self Expression: Women who influence us

24 Nov

If you don’t know by now, I love when a women stands up and expresses herself regardless if Tom,  Dick, Harry, Sue, Barb and Bob likes it or not.

I was going through my list of women who are sexy, smart and absolutely creative, ladies who do not care for being put into a box.

Through history there are women that come through and shake things up a little..and I like that..I like to applaud these ladies, because without them many of us wouldn’t know what is possible if we truly follow our creative self.

So cheers to that ladies, keep being you, the world likes it, even when they say they don’t.

And if you’re wondering why I choose this pic..because I think it’s an awesome pic..its sexy, its creative, it’s part of pop culture..and it’s Janet..one of the ultimate, one of the best that ever done it.

Are there any female artist or activist that has left a lasting impression on you?
