Some words of wisdom from Kim...
“If there is one thing I have learned in my fourteen years of working as a professional dancer, it would be the importance of self-worth. I had to quickly readjust my way of thinking and realize that it’s not about pleasing ‘them’ - it’s about loving me, just as I am. I am unapologetically embracing who I am this attracts more bliss in my life than I could ever imagine. DREAM big, and always remember: you are enough.
I find it essential to continuously remind myself that enjoying the JOURNEY that I am on is as valuable if not more valuable than the end goal I am working towards. Let's tell ourselves to live in the present moment. Let's capture the beauty there is to that daily growth. Let's embrace every step it takes for the realization of our DREAMS. I find it essential to continuously remind myself that enjoying the JOURNEY that I am on is as valuable if not more valuable than the end goal I am working towards. I remember being on a 12-hour flight, playing Beyoncé's albums on repeat, visualizing myself on stage with her over and over again. Not only was I picturing what it would look like, but I was envisioning what it would feel like, and what it would mean to me to accomplish my biggest dance DREAM.
DREAM, and dream some more! You are activating something magical. Love a lot. Smile more. Keep things simple. Don't expect too much. Judge less. Walk away from the negative. Create positive. Embrace who you are. Learn from past experiences. Don't be so hard on yourself. Laugh every day. Grow. Live. Listen to your heart and keep DREAMING big. Take the time to be grateful for the smallest, most simple things on a daily, watch your world TRANSFORM and witness all the best come your way!”
