Nobody cares if you can’t dance well. Just get up and dance. Great dancers are not great because of their technique, they are great because of their PASSION.
Martha Graham
Picture yourself when you were five. In fact, dig out a photo of little you at that time and tape it to your mirror. How would you treat her, love her, feed her? How would you nurture her if you were the mother of little you? I bet you would protect her fiercely while giving her space to spread her itty-bitty wings. She’d get naps, healthy food, imagination time, and adventures into the wild. If playground bullies hurt her feelings, you’d hug her tears away and give her perspective. When tantrums or meltdowns turned her into a poltergeist, you’d demand a loving time-out in the naughty chair. From this day forward I want you to extend that same compassion to your adult self.

The beauty of a woman is not in the clothes she wears, the figure that she carries, or the way she combs her hair. The beauty of a woman is seen in her eyes, because that is the doorway to her heart, the place where love resides. True beauty in a woman is reflected in her soul. It’s the caring that she lovingly gives, the passion that she shows & the beauty of a woman only grows with passing years.

I’ve seen flash-mobs at Conn before, but none more impressive and well organized than today’s 1 Billion Rising flashmob put on by the cast of the Vagina Monologues.

So well produced, in fact, that it warrants a rare, mid-day CONNPiX post!

Similar One Billion Rising events were held across the country and around the world on Thursday.

One Billion Rising

This is a group of girls from the red light district of Kolkata, India rising up. A girl I know worked with these girls last summer at an organization called New Light. It’s so great to see girls who have been so exploited take a stand and rise up against violence against women

One life is all we have and we live it as we believe in living it. But to sacrifice what you are and to live without belief, that is a fate more terrible than dying.
