Life

Standard

I’ve come to the realization that your dreams are always a part of you no matter how you spend your time. It’s just a matter of how you want to use that energy. I’ve been doing a lot of self care to get me to a happy and healthy mindset in doing so I’ve noticed that no matter what I do, my heart is always in acting. I go to performances and cry when they begin because I feel it. The passion and love tugging at me. That I’m doing the right things. It’s such a strong force and I’m not even sure if I’m explaining it correctly or coherently.

I’m working on lots of things right now. Mainly just building my brand, networking and updating everything. It’s been a rough summer and I’m very happy to be feeling this way again.

Hope everyone has a day above the rest! ❤

Keeping it real.

Standard

Excitement is around the corner, but I still need to push for what I want. Follow the structure that is laid out in front of me. I can do this. I can get everything I ever wanted and more. Working hard is the only way.

Vlogging.

Standard

Have you ever tried to create a Vlog? I have tried… multiple times. However today something hit me. A spark of inspiration and drive. I knew what I had to do.

Then I had to edit my work. That was probably the hardest thing I have done in a long time. I watched Youtube videos to show me certain tips and tricks. After a few hours, I was able to create this Vlog.

I learned a lot doing this Vlog and am excited to use what I learned for my next one!

Follow those dreams of yours!

Standard

We all have dreams. Things that we wish to accomplish. Goals we are trying to reach. How do we get to these dreams? How do we build our empire? I’ll give you a tip. You’re going to be amazed at how simple this is.

Theres always that moment where you realize what you’ve been doing wrong and where you need to go from here. I have that moment every week when I speak with my consultant over at BBR Productions. It gets drilled into my head. Honestly, I need to hear it every single time too.

If you did one small task everyday for 365 days, you would be that much closer your goals. I am very much trying to live by example. The last few weeks, my to-do list has been compiled of 7 tasks and by the end of the week, I have completed one task every day. It’s no secret why this method works. But it truly is life changing.

Since practicing this method I have been more focused, dedicated and on track. Let me know how it works for you and your dreams!

Dominoes

Standard

Ever feel like you’re just not doing something right? Or your not moving? Feeling stagnant? It’s been a rough few months for me. I was starting to feel unmotivated. It was hard for me to self  start on the daily tasks that needed to be done. 

What can you do when you feel like that? Well I have a Thomas J. Bellezza who pushes, and kicks my butt when needed. But besides that… I got a gig. This gig was just what I needed to start feeling like the actress I know I am. 

Since that gig, I have made connections with individuals I never would have met otherwise. And have started a small snowball that will continue to grow…. Or rather created a domino effect. When one falls the rest will follow…. I can feel how busy my life is going to become. 

If I could give you any advice… Keep moving. Keep pushing. Keep following those big dreams of yours. Something is bound to happen sooner or later. Never give up!

Film-Crazy! 

Standard

What great advice! Go out there and do something you love. Something that will make your heart smile. It’s worth it!

I’m off to a film festival…

There’s just something about celebrating film that makes me happy.

I wish everyday was a film festival day!

I don’t really have any advice for today other than to do something you love and be fearless- and celebrate something you care about. Bring your spouse flowers…go paint a new painting if that’s what you love…take a dance class..

Peace, Love

Lessons.

Standard

Last weekend my consultant, Thomas J Bellezza
( http://bbrproductions.com ) and I went over to the Players Theatre in Manhattan to attend an acting workshop led by Mr. Alan Gordon. I was so excited to be surrounded by people with passion and a zest for life.

Upon walking up the stairs I was immediately greeted by Mr. Gordon himself. At that moment, it was clear how excited he was to be able to teach this workshop and meet all of these new people.

Once we were seated in the room, Mr. Gordon began promptly with the material of the Meisner technique and giving ample examples of the technique using professional actors. Everyone was then given a turn in the first round of repetitions. This cycled through 3 times with plenty of time given to each student. By the end of the three hours we had a fairly good idea of what this workshop was all about.

Everyone takes something different away from every experience. For me, this was a great reminder that living in my head is a dangerous place. I feel that I can also use this lesson in life and not just in my acting. Learning to be more present when i am talking with the people in my life. Thanks to Mr. Gordon for a wonderful workshop and filling it with such talented people.
