You have the POWER, the choice in each moment, to keep living in the PAST, or to STEP INTO YOUR FUTURE!🌈 So many of us live TIED⛓️ to our limiting beliefs, values we grew up with, modeling we received, and we FORGET the immense POWER that lives in every cell and tissue of our BEING!🔥♥️🌊 We all have a past, traumas of varying degrees, ways we have been hurt, challenged, and this is some of our greatest fuel to actually CHANGE OUR LIVES!

Any guesses??☄️ 🌟🌟🌟YOUR VALUES🌟🌟🌟 These are your roots, the foundation from which all your thoughts, feelings, and actions COME FROM!🌲🌲🌏🌊♥️🙌🏽 We pick these up… to the plus and minus… from our families, friends, the culture, advertising etc. We may not consciously choose them‼️ This is where the movement is so VITAL! Movement takes you to connecting with YOURSELF! So you are aware and can feel what your values are currently. They show up in your actions, in your relationships, in your movement! And when you connect inside to YOURSELF, you are able to connect to what is ACTUALLY IMPORTANT TO YOU!🐬 You are able to re-write and consciously CHOOSE what your values are! The values are underneath all the movement, all the leadership, all the trainings we do in Dance Alive🙌🏽🌊🌲🔥 The Dance Alive Vaues are: 1. TEAMPLAY🐬 2. BE OPEN🌺 3. EXPLORE🌀 4. COMMIT🔥 5. BE RESILIENT🌊 Read more about them on our website ✨ link in comments! What are some of your core VALUES?♥️ #values #corevalues #teamwork #explore #commitment #resilience #beopen
