Bear with me here, Salsa is an acronym by the United We Stand speaker tonight, Stan Pearson. Salsa means Support, Action, Learning, Strive, Acceptance. Stan uses this acronym in his motivational comedy routines, and coupled with audience participation (and dancing!) he has a very entertaining. Stan’s main mission is to help people find their inner sexy. He helps people feel good about themselves, and the part of Stan’s message I’d like to highlight is the Acceptance part. He explained that everything that happens, good or bad, has it’s place it needs to be put in. The case he used was with his parents, and how his dad lost his mother. Stan asked him if he thinks about her and he said of course, he thinks about her everyday. But he said that doesn’t stop him from living his life and being the person he needs to be. Another way to put it is think of a memory from your past that you probably cried about, but now you can look back and laugh? That’s putting things in the right place. You can’t let things keep you from being who you need to be. Also, during Stan’s speech, he had everyone line up and Salsa dance, and it was a lot of fun! Dancing with a stranger isn’t that weird and Salsa dancing isn’t as hard as I thought either! If you have any questions or want more info about Stan, come find me and I’d be glad to share more!
