Everyone on our design team contributed a saying to this set, and they'll be previewing their chosen saying over in the Verve forum through August 12. Twelve lucky people will win this set just by commenting on the daily threads the Divas post, so be sure to check out the forum regularly!
Today is my turn to post the saying I chose: "Dance as if no one were watching, Sing as if no one were listening, Live every day as if it were your last."
I chose this quote because it has always been very inspirational for me. Coming from a Musical Theater background and going through numerous auditions, I truly understand the difference between when I would dance or sing for an audience or a director/choreographer, and when I would dance or sing when "no one was watching." There is a feeling of freedom when no one is watching. No inhibitions, no self-consciousness, NO WORRY. As I tend to be a worrier, I need to be reminded to let go and enjoy today. This quote has always reminded me to do that.
