I love this . Well said ❤️
A parent once asked me:
Why do you spend so much money and time for your daughter’s ballet classes and rehearsals so that she goes on stage once a year?
This is what I answered:
Well , let me tell you a secret. I don’t pay for my daughter to dance on stage once a year. Do you want to know what I’m paying for?
I am paying for my daughter to learn to be disciplined.
I am paying for my daughter to learn to take care of her mind and body.
I am paying for my daughter to learn how to work with others and be a good team member; and to develop her creativity.
I pay so that my daughter learns to face disappointment when she doesn’t get what she expected, and discovers that it is essential that she works harder.
I pay so that my daughter learns to achieve her goals.
I pay so that my daughter understands that it takes hours and hours of hard work and training to obtain results and that success does not come overnight.
I pay for the opportunity that my daughter has to make life lasting friendships.
I pay so that my daughter spends time at rehearsals and not in front of a screen.
I pay for those moments when she comes home so tired that she has no more time to waste.
I pay for all the teachings from this beautiful artistic discipline: responsibility, commitment, self confidence, conviviality, etc.
I could go on, but just to summarize I’ll tell you that I don’t pay for ballet classes, I pay for the opportunities that this discipline offers her to develop skills that will become quite useful all along her life and that will give her an opportunity to treasure life.

We took cover in the barn waiting for the rain to let up...luckily her mom's stop-the-rain dance and optimism worked it's magic! I love working with this stunning and talented senior...a fun and successful shoot even in the rain!

“ "Reinventarse no es "hacer cursos", es elegir un nuevo camino, cambiar el estilo de vida, aprender competencias transversales y especializarse profesionalmente"
Una "reinvención" es un cambio drástico en el estilo de vida que afecta a las relaciones personales, la dedicación profesional y la organización del día a día y que generalmente está originado por un cambio producido en la motivación y los valores de la persona o por un cambio que la persona quiere generar a medio o largo plazo. La reinvención "te puede pasar" o puedes "hacer que te pase", y en general será una mezcla de ambos procesos. (Texto del libro #SuperProfesional de mi querido @yoriento )
Poco más que añadir... Os dejo pronto, mañana destino a Córdoba, feliz noche amigos !!
