Howdie!

Thanks for stopping by today. Since I started this blog (Aug.10 2010- It’s almost her birthday!!) MOST days I have no problem coming up with something to write. However, the last couple days, I’ve had to think about it. That never happens. It usually is just there. hmmmm… but just now, I was sitting on my patio eating a salad and I thought…”but really, I can write about ANYTHING.”

I can write about the fact that I am mad at my patio for being dirty cause now the bottom of my slippers are dirty and I don’t want to wear them in the apartment. I am contemplating making them strictly “patio shoes”.

I could tell you that, this song I wrote- called “What You Want” still makes me cry when I listen to it. I don’t know why…. Very sentimental I guess. Listen while you read?

I could also share with you 5 Random Things that just popped in my head… Here we go….

1. Don’t be afraid to make mistakes.

At the end of  the day- who really cares? By making mistakes- you learn. By making mistakes, it means you tried something you haven’t done before. I once had a potential makeup client say she was disappointed I had a spelling mistake in my bio. I spelt “wether” as “weather”. OOPS! SORRY! Am I less capable now to put makeup on your face? HAHA I’ll be the first to tell you I’ve made worse mistakes than that- but I have no regrets. It has made me who I am today!

2. Don’t let Negative Nancy’s bring you down with them.

People who stomp on your dreams, obviously don’t believe in their own. DON”T LISTEN TO THEM. Have an open mind and an open heart and BELIVE IN YOURSELF.  Support others too. We are all in this together.

3. If you don’t have your health, what do you have?

I’m thinking about this one right now cause my foot has been bugging me. It is getting better though. I haven’t been training as hard or as much as I would like, but I am still hitting the gym and doing my best to eat well. This body is all we have- so treat it kindly-Inside and Out!

4. Take a chance!

What do you do the same. every. single. day? Switch it up! It’s good to take a different way home, try a new activity, go to an event or ask that person to the prom. Stay on your toes and keep challenging yourself and changing things up! That is one thing I have been good at (taking chances) but a refresher is always good.  About 6 months ago I emailed a voiceover agency I never thought I would get into- but I took a chance and bam- they loved my demo and I have booked 3 national commercials with them so far! (That was a New Years Resolution of mine too!)

5. Life never gives you more than you can handle. During the craziest times- you will survive. Just know that. We are so damn resilient. We are a million times stronger than we think we are. So if you are getting overwhelmed and stressed out about a certain situation, just remember- “You can handle it.”

This is also something I am getting better at. Sometimes I worry that since I am self-employed the work is going to dry up and I won’t be able to pay my rent. My confident self says, “That is BS, you are on fire and nothing is ever gonna stop you now.” So there ya go…confident me is the only voice in my head I will let speak from now on!! haha

What have you learnt in your time on earth that you would like to share?

Alrighty then, back to deciding what I should do about these slippers……

Have a great night!!!

xoxo
