We moved to a new neighborhood just 8 months ago. When the moving truck pulled up, it was like a bat signal to neighbors, and one by one they came over and introduced themselves. One set of neighbors in particular I am quite fond of. We teased our neighbor this weekend because, I kid you not, he washes his cars a couple of times per week. He is meticulous. I admire it, as my car is just slightly better than an episode of Hoarders. We told him that we thought he was a serial killer, and that’s why he needed to clean his car so much. Leave it to us to go to our “dark place” with that. This kind neighbor just pressure washed our patio, patio furniture and our shared walkway this weekend. Seriously, who does that? He has no idea how he blessed us with that act of…

I love my acting class. I am only in week 2, and I feel like my brain is on fire. I have never been so uncomfortable in my life, and that is how I know I am in the right place. Last night, my teacher said something about me and a couple of my classmates. She named us off and told the class to watch us and learn from our mistakes because we “live out loud”. I am unafraid to make mistakes in this class because I have accepted the fact I am GOING TO. Thus, my guard is down and I am living out loud. I am there to learn, not play it safe. A few weeks ago, a friend/mentor challenged me regarding the time I spend reading the Bible. She offered to have me send her my notes (my journal). At first, I was like, “Awesome! Accountability. This…

Here’s the deal, success & failure are somewhat subjective.  There are those who don’t believe in failure, siting that if you learned a lesson from a given experience, than it wasn’t a failure. While others see failure as not gaining their desired result of an action. Think of a brilliant moment in your life. Maybe when you were a star football player or a corporate bigshot. Now, think of the lowest point of your life; a time you really blew it. I submit to you, whether it’s a room of trophies or a devastating divorce; do NOT hang your hat on EITHER of these things. We must move forward. We must continue to make progress. Small steps are still steps!  Cherishing memories of past victories is fine, but they are in the past. What about today? Maybe it’s time for a new dream. Haunted by a painful past? Let go. Find help -…

I started taking an acting class this week. Consider my mind…BLOWN. I have never been so uncomfortable in my life. But I believe this class is going to make me a better actor, so I am giving this all I’ve got. What made me look into education? Well, I want this to be my career, and not a just a hobby. I want to be great at it. When I fell in love with David, I was absolutely lovesick. Butterflies. I could not eat (and I looked FABULOUS btw! I sorta miss those days! lol!). I couldn’t sleep. I wanted to spend every moment with him, and when I wasn’t with him, I was talking ABOUT him. I wanted to know everything about him; likes, dislikes, plans for the future. It may seem strange but, I think I’ve fallen in love with acting. I want to discover new things about…
