Who's that girl with the big forehead ?
I never know how to start off my blogs, but without too much thought this time..
HERE IT GOES...Be warned that there is no order, but just random thoughts of what has been going on in my mind.
Caution: My mind can be pretty out there
I made it a goal to get a blog out this week. These past few months, I've been living off daily, weekly, & monthly goals, & I must say that writing it down & rewarding myself at the end of the month with something that I've always wanted (only if I accomplish the goals-- It's working for me. #TryIt ;)
I've been really blessed. I know that I say that in every blog, but it's a must for me, especially now more than ever. Things in life are moving, & they are only going to move even faster for me since I made a huge change in my life. So if I was landing gigs before, now it's going to look even better since I will have more free time on my hands. FEELIN' FREE & No one can stop me--
This summer has consisted of informercials, commercials, auditions, & rehearsals. Still looking to land a feature film however, consider it my last big goal for 2013. I've still been writing, but with life happening sometimes the writing isn't as often as I would like it to be. But this year is definitely going to end in an amazing way for me as a compensation for my hard work.
Change is inevitable. Is happening every single day for me. I've closed doors that needed to be closed; no regrets.
I've taken risks that I'd never thought possible. I'm not going to lie, the hectic schedule can sometimes feel lonely, but without sacrifice there is no gain. And I WILL GAIN. I will accomplish all that my heart desires. The way in which I accomplish this, however, has changed. The more days that are added to my youth, the more powerful realizations I have. My journey has taken a detour, but a detour for a better route.
Change of topic...
Sometimes I know that certain things shouldn't affect me as deep as they do. But I've thinking about Lee Thompson Young like crazy. I don't know... but for some strange reason, although I never met the kid, I just feel terribly sad over the news; deeply sad. I remember watching the Famous Jett Jackson on Disney, and being motivated by him to be on TV. I've been thinking about how people go about their lives and what may appear is never what really is. I've found it to be my new habit (as difficult as it may be), to smile often, even if I'm having a shitty day; to say hello to strangers, to greet those that appear to be having a bad day, to compliment those around you. As mankind, we should strive to love one another, try to help when we can, and serve when not asked. And helping doesn't mean financially, it means lifting up the spirits of those around us, and putting a smile on even the people that just annoy the crap out of us. This is one of the things that I am striving for everyday. I start to think as to why Lee Thompson took his life. What could have been so burdening to the point where he didn't feel worthy he should live anymore... I guess I'll never come to understand. Like could someone have said something to him that day to change his mind? Would an I LOVE YOU, have changed it. And not just for Lee Thompson but for all of those that are suicidal victims. Let's strive as a nation to care for one another. The person you criticize today may be gone tomorrow. What people wear or don't wear is none of your business. What financial circumstances they are going through may prohibit them from buying the nice clothes you have on your back. Turn the criticism into a realization of how truly blessed you are to have the nice clothes, to have the job that paid for those clothes, to have the education you were able to have to obtain the job, and the parent(s)/guardian(s), that put you towards the path of an education.
REALIZATION--- the clean air is a blessing. I've heard the war stories from the ex & some Marine/Army buddies.
They tell me how much they appreciate the clean air when they get back to the states. We take it for granted.
The sun is a blessing. The rain is a blessing. The free water is a blessing. The CLEAN water is a blessing.
We are blessed, let's cherish it.
...My mind... You were warned.

One of my latest tweets--
WHAT DO YOU ALL THINK ABOUT THIS NEW LOOK???
AFTER THE COLORS OF LOVE THE PLAY, I MAY JUST GO FOR IT?
But God knows how many times I've sat on the chair for a cut and have only been successful once.
Maybe I'll end 2013 with a bang!
