FROM ME, TO YOU: Dancing to the Beat of Your Own Drum

Anyone that knows me can vouch for the fact that out of the many gifts I have been blessed with dancing is not one of them. I don't have a great deal of rhythm, but it doesn't stop me from moving when one of my favorite songs come on.

Though I would definitely not win any awards or special recognition for my moves on the dance floor, when it comes to celebrating life I don't mind moving to my own beat.

This issue of Conversations Magazine is all about knowing when it is time to step out of line and doing what it is that not only fulfills you but gives you real joy as well. Each of the features are individuals that regardless of their field they have found ways to not only make a difference but give a tangible example of what it means to  live our lives on purpose.

Kenny Lattimore graces the cover of this issue and sets a standard for what it means to know where you believe and why you are here. His conversation is one that will not only surprise you but inspire you as you find your own way. Then there is celebrity jeweler Mark Lash. He has gone from creating jewelry in his parents' basement to seeing his unique designs on celebrities around the world.

For those fans of the hit show Braxton Family Values we have Towanda Braxton sharing not only wisdom but her key to finding real happiness. There is also Keny Cohen, a designer that has allowed her own personal taste and style to make women look and feel beautiful.

Regardless of what article you read, I think you will see the advantage of not allowing fear to keep you from stepping out of line and paving the way to not just your happiness but that of others. As our features share it's not easy to do all the time, but it is definitely worth it.

Have a personal story you want to share about how you are dancing to the beat of your own drum? I would love to read it and share! Email it to me at or post it on our website. Keep in mind that we might use your comments in a future issue of Conversations Magazine.

Happy reading!
