Be Your Own You
Quotes have become a pretty regular occurrence on Facebook, Instagram, and most of social media. We use these as a quick way of self-expression--to show we're happy, angry, sad and so on. Unfortunately, they've become the replacement tool of our true feelings, thoughts and expression and sometimes those authors who've been creative enough to muster up these little gems remain nameless when it comes to our quote posts. Sometimes we find ourselves not being ourselves and instead we take on the persona of someone else. At Destination Performing Arts Center, we firmly believe in the importance of SELF. Our goal is for our students to obtain an unshakeable confidence and for them to hold tight to their dreams and ambitions. We want to create an atmosphere that is safe-where student artistry and creativity are welcomed and applauded--where individuality is embraced and conformity is frowned upon. In closing, we'd like to share a quote from Richelle E. Goodrich:
“Never give up. It's like breathing—once you quit, your flame dies letting total darkness extinguish every last gasp of hope. You can't do that. You must continue taking in even the shallowest of breaths, continue putting forth even the smallest of efforts to sustain your dreams. Don't ever, ever, ever give up.”
At Destination Performing Arts Center, we want for our students to never give up and to never give in. Be your own beautiful you.
