It was such an honor to be a part of this event on Friday evening. David was the announcer for the strong, amazing princesses (and Queen). I love these women.
These were his introductions:
Good evening! To Your Most Royal Highnesses, and your steadfast and devoted Escorts, I offer a warm and heartfelt welcome! It is my great privilege this evening to introduce your honored visitors. A gathering of Princesses from across the worlds of magic and imagination.
Kind, elegant, shy and sophisticated, as well as a hopeless romantic, this princess was named by her parents after the goddess of the dawn, because she filled their life with sunshine. Put into a cursed sleep by the evil Maleficient, she was awakened by “true love’s kiss”. I am delighted to introduce the Sleeping Beauty herself, Princess Aurora.
Recently freed from the tower of evil Mother Gothel, this Princess is spirited, clever, kind, and very adventurous, with an amazing hairdo and a mean iron skillet. The true princess of the Kingdom of Corona, I am honored to present Princess Rapunzel.
Our next princess hails from the far kingdom of Agrabah. This daughter of a sultan is caring, strong, independent, and unafraid to speak her mind no matter what. Your Highnesses, I speak, of course, of Princess Jasmine.
Afraid that her power to create ice and snow could hurt the people she loved, she hid herself away, until she was rescued by her loving sister. Born a princess, but now the true Queen of Arendelle, please join me in welcoming Queen Elsa.
Born on the island village of Motunui, this daughter of Chief Tui inherited a love for the seas and voyaging. Loyal, strong-willed, and practically fearless, she is a true friend to her allies and the ocean. It is my privilege to present Princess Moana.
Raised as a scullery maid in service to her evil step-mother and step-sisters, our next Princess found her true love with the help of her Fairy Godmother… and an abandoned glass slipper. Your Highnesses, please join me in welcoming Princess Cinderella.
This next princess is near and dear to me. The loving, if headstrong and mischievous, daughter of mighty King Triton, she left her underwater kingdom to explore her love of humankind. Brave, curious, and blessed with a beautiful voice, I am particularly proud to present to you Princess Ariel.
I love this man.
I love where I work and what I am able to participate in.
The people that work this hard for so many–who make it seem effortless. I am truly in awe of their spirit.
Be surrounded by supporters, those that encourage you. Be someone’s encourager.
So true. Treat everyone the same. Everyone deserves the same respect.
Lately there have been lots of changes at work for lots of people. Changes have been happening quickly for many, and you have to make a decision pretty quick–like overnight—check with your family if you want to pursue this or not – quick.
Some people have difficulty making a decision. Not making a decision in itself is a decision. I have always said this to our kids. Just make a decision – right or wrong – make it.
Leadership is the same – you have to make a decision. Waiting, and not making a decision is usually the worst decision.
Love where I live…
It’s been an exciting week for me, with lots of changes I will talking about next week. Overall good things that have come from hard work and excellent leadership examples.
Today I needed to rest, and take this in. Tomorrow will be busy, but ready for the opportunity that it brings.
My supervisor is this image of a leader. She inspires, motivates and encourages. I have been incredibly blessed by her leadership, and hope that I can do the same one day.
