Misty Copeland Is American Ballet Theatre's First Black Principal Dancer
*This month Misty Copeland​ made well-deserved history and I just had to jump online to share because when she dances I just cry for her beauty, elegance, grace, precision and for our history.

Misty Copeland was promoted Tuesday to female principal dancer at the American Ballet Theatre, becoming the first black woman in the company's 75-year history to hold the role.

Copeland, 32, is already arguably the most famous ballerina in the United States, having been the subject of a TIME magazine cover and a popular Under Armour ad campaign along with her high profile position at American Ballet Theatre. She has spent 14 years there, more than half as a soloist.

A Reason, A Season or A Lifetime...... ‪#‎FRIENDS‬

Over the years, I have lost some friends along my journey in this thing called life. I have awaken to no replies to my emails, no replies to my text messages, no replies on facebook, no replies on LinkedIn, a walk past me like I never existed, and just one day the phone calls stop being returned. A complete disconnect from friends that I thought would be with me for a lifetime.

At times, I questioned myself and replayed the last memories I have of them in my life. ...but NEVER do I get upset, because I am very grateful for the part they played in my life at that particular time....and NEVER do I get upset because I am 100% confident God knows what is best for me, what energy needs to be around me for the phase of life I am in and I believe my steps are divinely ordered. 

Thus, I encourage you to NEVER get upset should this happen to you. Remember our heavenly father is our friend and when you need a friend for A Reason, A Season or A Lifetime.....trust me he will send someone your way for that particular need.

Be Encouraged....but don't you dare stop moving... even when it feels like you have to go at it alone....keep moving.

2. Harvey’s faith persevered. “You want to know how to be rich. Stop trying to think of how you can make a million dollars. Stop trying to think of a million dollar idea because it freezes you,” “You need a 10 dollar idea. A 10 dollar idea you can work day in and day out.

Steve Harvey discusses “Medicine is easy to take when it tastes good! Humor allows me to take a message that is hard to swallow sometimes” – and deliver it. That is what makes Steve Harvey so different!

3. Lisa Nichols shared her story of being a single mom with $11 dollars in the bank, looking at her son, unable to buy diapers, saying, “Mommy will never be this poor again.” She continued, saying that while this may be where some are now, that is not our destiny, but just a moment. “I believe in a holistic approach, and being unapologetically successful which means I have nothing to hide, nothing to prove and nothing to defend,” Lisa Nichols said.

4. Nicole Roberts Jones taught one of the breakout sessions. Jones is a speaker, author, and empowerment coach. “When the world gets me in all my brilliance, they get . . . ,” Jones said. Jones encouraged those in her session to move from fear and add what the world gets to the end of that sentence. She encouraged those wanting to be successful to do it afraid, and not wait for the fear to leave. She said find your perception, be unapologetic about your greatness, let go of process and take the limits off. “Your gift isn’t even for you,” Jones said.
