Hey BR Vixens! It's been a lonnngggg time since I have wrote to you fab ladies and I must say I have missed our conversations. I have been preparing for some major changes in my life which have required a lot from me physically and emotionally. This past week was very huge for the Belle Rouge Company. I had the distinguished honor of being featured in my very first live performance as the sole choreographer and creative director of my performance. I know this may seem pretty "ehh" to some people, but to me this was my first time getting on a stage with COMPLETE creative direction and control over what I performed. In the past, I have been a wonderful supporter in other shows as a dancer and supporter. This time I stepped out on faith and took control! It was very exciting and scary at the same time. For those of you who supported by getting tickets, I truly appreciate your encouragement and support! To those who were unable to come out but shared your well wishes along the way, I thank you. My vision was to portray the essence of a well-rounded seductress and entrepreneur of the arts. It came to life before my very eyes, making all of the hard work and long nights so worthwhile. Today, I want to talk to you about pushing through and overcoming difficult obstacles on your path to achieving success.
Just when you think things are going smooth or constant, life throws us curveballs which I like to call opportunities. The challenge is to overcome those obstacles with grace and composure. The last thing you want to think about after a major event/obstacle is "why didn't I handle that better?" I know it's easy to get caught up in all the 'what could go wrong' scenarios but you have to be at least two steps ahead and plan for the worst just in case. Unfortunately, on the day of my show within four hours of showtime, I had to rearrange my entire show formation due to a change in the number of ladies performing. At first, I wanted to panic and get mad but, then I realized and accepted that the show must go on! This unexpected obstacle actually pushed me to think on my toes and still produce an amazing show with the help of a great team behind me to cheer me on.
The moral of my testimony is to be careful with your words, you never want to jeopardize a working or friendly relationship over a misunderstanding. We all want to be successful and impress ourselves with our abilities to produce great events, products and services, but at the same time we have to 1) be respectful of our own hard work, 2) use our best judgement in handling difficult decisions and 3) take control but remember to be gracious. Obstacles come and go but so do relationships. Choose your battles wisely and celebrate the good times!
