DO YOU WANT TO BE GOOD OR DO YOU WANT TO BE GREAT!

Standard

I recently re-opened my business bible “Success Principles” by Jack Canfield auther of Chicken Soul for the Soul.  I refer to this book OFTEN.  I’ve read this book several times and at this point I open it to any random page and begin reading there. Like a bible it often opens up to a page that is completely relevant to my life.

The roulette ball landed on a chapter called “Say No to the Good So that you Can Say Yes to the Great.”  The chapter opens with a quote from Jim Collins (author of Good to Great) “Good is the enemy of great.”  The message of this chapter is prioritization.  Sometimes we fill our lives with so many things that are merely “good” goals or “good” activities or “good” people – and it leaves a person with no time to really invest in something that is “GREAT.”  I’ve been a “Yes” girl all my life. Not just because I like saying yes to please other people; also I enjoy so many things in life that when an opportunity comes my way it seems “good” at the time.

I’ve had to take some steps backward so that I can evenly examine a situation and opportunity to assess what’s best for me.  I used to be a “YES” girl but no longer.  I just don’t have enough time in a day and I find that I’ve been way happier and have achieved greater success in my life mentally and physically when I started “loving myself” and taking care of “myself” which meant saying “no” at times.

This year I’ve truly examined where and with who I spend my time.  So much of my life is inside of social settings that when I’m not inside of venues or producing – I really enjoy my calm surroundings.  Walking on the beach, listening to the ocean, making jewelry, reading, exercising, engaging in good conversation, seeing old friends … spending a ton of time by myself. Truly it’s fed my spirit and I thank god for waking up and feeling the way I do INSIDE.

I’m learning to prioritize my time.  It’s paying off!  I’m a work in progress and I embrace the lesson I’m learning.   I live in GREATNESS & ABUNDANCE!

Good Times …

Standard

I’ve been having so much damn fun lately!  I’ve re – connected with old friends and music scenes in Los Angeles that I’ve missed dearly.  Although I throw high end events and parties – I’m really a Venice Beach girl at heart!  If I could be near water EVERYDAY i would.  I love flip flops, chill music, good people, relaxed & chill environments and cocktails!  I sat at a park last week and read a book for hours on end – when do I ever get a chance to do that?
I attended my friends screening of  Food Network’s show titled “Private Chefs of Beverly Hills.” Love to Chef Brian and all the amazing people I met that evening.  I learned to Lindy Hop – thanks to Nick.  Met some new friends: David, Jeff and Nicole.  Good time is an understatement – truly.

I had a chance to go watch my girl Feyla rip it at World of Dance and I reunited with so many of the old hommies!  It was a reunion. Straight up.  Shouts to Richie, Myron, Tif Bong, Preal, Citrus, Eddie, Chris, Wes, Marvin and everyone else who was supporting the dance scene.  Big shouts to Bonita, Feyla, Cricket and Peppa for lightin’ up the circle!  I went from World of Dance to Verdugo – a chill lounge spot in Pasadena/Burbank area where my hommie Miguel Escobedo was reppin’ Papalotes!  The food was off the hook as usual! Again, more good people – delicious food – dope music and shouts to Rhettmatic, Sloepoke, J Rocc, Rona, Miguel and all the good people who were enjoying themselves at Verdugo.  I had a great flippin’ time!

The next day (Sunday) I strolled out to Little Temple to support Sloepoke’s night and again! … REUNION!  Dj Mr. E was on the 1’s and 2’s and I was in good company the entire evening.  Love to Kg Super Star, Danny, J Rocc, Cameron, Feyla, Alejandro, Gene and the list goes on.

Yoga – this week was absolutely what I needed – thank you god!  My brother had his first child.  BTW he’s the cutest baby ever. Aside from my nieces who are also the cutest babies ever.  Yeah – so there are 3 “cutest babies ever.” 😀

I’m in the bay with the fam and spent time with my girls last night: Tiersa, Trey and Tif.  Hilarious – is the adjective I would use to describe that conversation. Wait … 2 more words – Casadores and pineapple. Yeap – that’s pretty accurate.  My side hurt when I was leaving.  I have no idea how I woke up with no hangover – wait I know – It’s called “tolerance.” Does that mean I drink too much?  Who knows!

I’m looking forward to partying and catching up with folks while I’m out here.  My hommie Franboogie throws some dope events in SF.  Going to head to an event on Friday evening @ Mighty.  Definitely going to hit up the Parish in Oakland.  Without a doubt I will paying a visit to Papalotes!  TRUST!  Looking forward to this week. Gonna hit the ground running!   Work and play / work and play!  As it should be … until next time!

STYLES UPON STYLES — FLIPPIN’ AMAZING!

Standard

Wow, what a difference one month makes.  I have a good reason for not writing for the past 30 days.  Things have been crazy and wonderful all at the same time.  In the last 30 days, Styles Upon Styles came to life and it was an incredible event!

First things first – Styles Upon Styles San Francisco went above and beyond my expectations.    The event was truly spectacular – We reached capacity, the music was ridiculous, the performances were amazing beyond words and the dance community TRULY came out to support Crazy Legs and One Cypher and it’s relaunch.
Much love to some new friends I’ve met along this special journey Dj Mr. E, Sean G & Ezra and Miles of 330 Ritch – it was truly a PERFECT storm.
Styles upon Styles was blessed by the works of Jonas Lynch who did a live performance painting of Crazy Legs.  Philtered Soul did the damn thing alongside all female dance crew the Syrenz!  The screening of Red Bull “Bouncing Cats” was unforgettable and not to be missed when Styles Upon Styles comes to Los Angeles on May 20, 2010!
MARK YOUR CALENDARS!
Special Shout out to PAPALOTES in FRISCO!  Thank you Miguel for all the hospitality!  EVERYONE that really knows me – knows I LOVE TO EAT!   This place is the business!
