What Did This Class Teach Me?
Life is full of experiences. Every experience we face shapes us in some way. Some experiences are positive, while others are negative. Some are easy, while others are much more challenging. No matter what the case may be, every experience in life should provide a lesson and every lesson should be used as a tool to better our lives. The performance 1 class at Caryn International was one such experience that taught me lessons that I can utilize forever. In today’s society, women are constantly being ridiculed, criticized and beaten down both by others and themselves. It is so easy to dwell on the imperfections in life and search for things we do not like about ourselves. We are our own biggest critics. The performance 1 class teaches to us our self-power to focus on what we love about ourselves, our lives and others.
In this class, we watched the movie “The Secret.” This was definitely a life changing movie for me and I think it is one that everybody should see at least one in their lives if not multiple times. It stresses the importance of the power we possess within ourselves. We can use our power in any way we so choose. We can either use it as a means of deprecation and negativity or we can use it to view the world in an optimistic, joyful way. It tells us that we are in control of our own destiny. Nobody else is going to determine our life story for us. We hold our worlds in our hands.
This class provided me with a whole new mindset. Like everyone else, I have faced my fair share of obstacles. As I have overcome them, I have become better equipped to deal with future ones. The class showed me that true beauty comes from within. It is in the eyes of the beholder. If we think that we are beautiful, than we are. The opinions of others do not matter. The only opinion we need is the one we hold of ourselves.
Femininity and what it means to be a lady were two topics that were covered in great depth. Throughout the years, women have forgotten what being a lady truly means. It is a delicate balance of strength and grace. We can be strong while still being soft. We are complex beings and learning how to juggle all of these complexities can be challenging. After taking the performance 1 class, I feel that I am better equipped to do this juggling. I have learned so much about myself and I cannot wait to put the lessons I have learned into practice with my modeling career.
