20 years!

I can't believe it!  I graduated from high school 20 years ago.  I am feeling so old right about now!  There was a Class of 1995 page created on FaceBook and it has been a trip down memory lane!  I really hope I am able to make it to the reunion.

It is also been 20 years since I landed my first dancing gig at Disneyland!  I was so nervous to audition for Disneyland being that it was my first and I had no idea what to expect.  It was an incredible experience and I couldn't believe I was offered the job at the end of the 9 hour audition.  I finished high school while starting rehearsals in Disneyland and flying between Arizona and California.  Luckily I had family in California that were a huge support by allowing me to live with them for the summer.  I also meet some amazing people that summer and never felt the need to be in the closet while working at Disneyland.  It was such a refreshing feeling coming from Arizona.

When we are young we don't think about how our decisions will impact our future or how it can set our life on a certain path.  I have never regretted my decisions because I have always tried to make the very best decisions I could at the time and some decisions that didn't seem like the best decision at the time were based on survival!  My life has taken me down an incredible path filled with love, laughs, joy, sadness, heartbreak, and pretty much every emotion imaginable.

I sometimes forget to live life as it could be the last day!  Life is precious and we should cherish every moment of it.  Don't sweet the small stuff and love passionately and forgive those who have wronged you.  Don't forget how they have wronged you so you don't make that mistake twice but holding on to things does more damage to you than to the person who wronged you.

Live, Love, Laugh, Dance!
