I have been inspired by a beautiful young women who I recently met. She is such an inspiration to me that I just had to share. When she walked into the room her smile was warm and energetic. Her soul is so pure and bright, it was electrifying. She is young, much younger than I, and she is confident in her body.. She spoke with elegance and strength at the same time. She had no signs of fear when speaking in front of a group of people, no signs of anxiety what so ever. She shared a story that was very touching, motivating and inspiring.

She was ridiculed for many years about her body. She was told that she wouldn’t be good enough, that she wouldn’t make the “cut”. Although that one person effected her in a bad way for a very long time, she eventually chose to get up and get moving. And boy did she!!  Long story short, she lost A LOT of weight and is highly successive today. She is no stick figure ( and I’m so glad she’s not), but is beautiful inside and out. When I say “beautiful” I mean BEAUTIFUL!! This young women is gorgeous and truly sincere. She represents what “love” is and if you met her you would agree. Her passion to inspire and encourage everyone she comes in contacts with is absolutely genuine.

I am newly inspired by people like her who have overcome major obstacles beyond there imagination. Her story set me on a path of self realization and has inspired me to jump with the risk of failing. Although my heart may pound out of my chest, I’ll get over it. One thing for sure is I wont get better at anything if I allow fear and anxiety to stop me from going for it. I must step out of my comfort zone, over and over and over again.

“I’ve learned in my life that it’s important to be able to step outside your comfort zone and be challenged with something you’re not familiar or accustomed to. That challenge will allow you to see what you can do.” J.R. Martinez

“Never let the odds keep you from doing what you know in your heart you were meant to do.” H. Jackson Brown Jr.

Live, Love, honor, and laugh out loud! Prioritize You!

About Cassandra Pavolic

As a retired performer for 25 years transitioning careers has been difficult. I truly enjoyed my career as an aerialist performer. I was fortunate enough to see the world, traveled many places and met people from all cultures. I learned a tremendous amount about life and people during my years traveling than I would in a school setting. The one thing I took away from being on the road is that no matter what ethnic background you are, we are all so similar. A smile is a smile in every language (happiness or contentment). Expressions of all emotions have the same meaning around the world. For this reason we are similar, and I somehow find that comforting. I'm now 50! It's hard to believe I'm fifty already! I reflect on my accomplishments as well as my failures up to date. Both are irrelevant to what I value most. I value people and relationships. I value my deity, it is the number one thing that keeps me stable. Being true to myself is a portion of my "food" in regards to my decision making. When I steer away from being my true self I am disappointed. Exercise, taking walks, and being still are another source of "food" in my life. I like to be still, listen and observe all things. I have been this type of person since a young child. Perhaps one of the reasons why I take an interest in Personality Psychology and my recent studies human behavior. I hold an Associates degree in Music/Theater/Dance from Dean College in MA. I quickly realized I wanted to perform, therefore my journey began immediately after graduating from Dean. I have been a Licensed Massage Therapist, as well as a Certified Personal Trainer. I am curious, I am persistent and I am passionate. I'm on a mission to be a better person, to help those who want to help themselves, and to share my thoughts, opinions, experiences to anyone who gives a damn. All in hoping that what I have to offer will change lives as you learn to keep your priorities in order. And so I started prioritize you.
