I don't know about you, but it has been a tough few weeks for me. I've had to pay really close attention to the language I'm using to make sure I'm not speaking negatively. Because how we describe things is how they are. I have to remember that I do have power over how I approach the world and what I can attract. To ground and comfort myself, to open myself to receptivity I've been repeating, "my world is so big and everything is lined up for me." And that helps. Even just remembering that once, I felt good, helps. I open up the possibility of feeling that way again.
As Artist, we know that there are valleys and peaks. We know that the terrain stretches on and on, and when you're in the valley it's hard to see the rest of the landscape, then you have to remember your actor's faith, know that this is a transient moment and it does not define you or your future.
Here are some goodies that I want to share with you!
I hope they inspire you as much as they did me!
