Mindful Monday #80 – Reflection

Happy Monday! Tomorrow is the start of a new month which is also my birth month and I have begun the process of reflecting on my personal year. This year has been a hard every step of the way, at the same time has been poetry. Since I am in a reflective state I wanted…

Tune Tuesday #1 – Learning to Fly

I’ve been wanting to add a new section to my blog for Tuesday, but I couldn’t think of anything that felt right. The idea hit me last night. Tune Tuesday. I love music. Music has been there for me to offer words of support, encouragement, motivation, understanding and helped speak to the truths that I…

Coming Full Circle

Sometimes the realization you have that point to your growth creep up on you.

In His Shoes

It’s always been a goal of mine to get to know people’s hearts and understand their perspective.  I’ve been doing this since I was a young girl and I’ve gotten very good at understanding people and their perspective.  However, I recently had the unique experience of stepping into someone else’s shoes (or perspective) in a…

Mindful Monday #3 – Reflection

A lot happened this week which include both the wonderful and hard.  It was a challenge to find the quote for the week since everything I am learning and realizing, at this moment, has a lot of weight and importance.  The most interesting thing of all these lessons is that they are coming through my…

A Change in Perspective

Almost three years ago I was on the biggest movie of my career (at the time.)  I was successful at living and working in LA since I moved.  I was living my dream and it was more amazing than I imagined.  Almost three years ago I was also on the hardest movie of my career. …

Cleansing My Soul

Last week I was on location in Houston. (This is the third time I have been on location in almost eight years since I have been in the industry and it’s the first time I have been on location since I have been in LA.) This show has been many firsts for me. It is the first…

This Isn’t Goodbye

I am on location this week.  To be on location in the film industry means that the production company I work for is shooting in a remote city, which requires travel and housing (away from the production companies home base.)  Working on location in the department that I am in challenges my goal to write…

Un-Masked

“Don’t give them the satisfaction that they got to you.”   My mother told me, when I was a girl. It hurt her to see me hurt. On several occasions I came home crying because of comments kids made about my weight. I cried a lot back then. Overtime I took her advice to heart….

Breaking Up(ward)

This month, last year, I reconnected with a classmate who has since become a friend.  It has been two months from when we met to when we reconnected. The standard thing a lot of people do around this time is wish co-workers, friends and strangers happy new year.  Followed by the question that I asked…

A Dream with a Deadline

“If you aim at nothing you’ll hit it every time.” – Zig Ziglar This year I had the same conversation with two different people about goals.  To my surprise I learned that both people have never set goals in their life.  A life with out goals is mind-blowing, since my life has been about goals…
