Do Not Judge Yourself by Your Cover.

Sounds simple, right? It is easy to reflect on the outside of ourselves: see all the wounds, years of stress and weight. Yet behind that beaten exterior is the soul of a person who KeepCalm53is pure and strong. We sometimes look outward because we are afraid to harness the strength and power that is within. Sometimes that power reveals a side of us that is fearless and mighty; sometimes our inner spirit contradicts the steely or even shy exterior that we have developed over the years.

You may have a look of a solider on the outside but deep down you are fragile and the beauty of that is: there is a balance. You should embody both. It is amazing how sometimes we feel that we need permission to do or feel certain things. Like society or perhaps your our perceptions place limitations on our skills and abilities. No one said you couldn’t do this or that but somehow you have managed to “cap” yourself. Why? Why do we do that? What is even more fascinating is when the universe pushes against the grain and shows you what you have been hiding from: your own potential. We are not limited to the constraints that the world holds us under: we are not just emotional creatures or selfish beings, we are human. We are capable of growth and discovery. Just because we get older does not mean we stop progressing.

As I do not encourage extraneous vanity, I honestly have my days that I just take a long look in the mirror. What is being seen of you in this world? What do you see of yourself? Most importantly, how do you feel about it? There is a saying: if you don’t like something about yourself, change it.

Try this: accept yourself and then adjust yourself, if necessary.

The Book Is Here!

The Book and the ProcessKeep Calm And Create On Cover PNG

June 1st is finally here!

After a long two-year process, including conceptualizing, over 15 drafts, intense copy editors, 22 amazing reviewers, designers, and publishing, it is finally here! Not only does this book exemplify my spirit as an artist, it speaks on my road of perseverance and strength.

I wrote Keep Calm and Create On: Words of Encouragement from One Artist to the Next because of my experiences being an artist in a field so saturated with looks and stereotypes over talent and skill. This book is about feeding your creative spirit and balancing your artistic duality.

While the book is complete, I am still early on in my journey. So please if you have not taken the time to like and support us!

Crowded.

Crowded.

Don’t ever apologize for being yourself. Perhaps this is the third time I have mentioned this principle on the blog. Those who know you and your worth will learn to appreciate you for you: KeepCalm46flaws and all. The things in life that challenge or hurt us were put there for a reason. Everything happens for a reason. Don’t let the bad stand in front of your blessings.

With so much going on in the world today, we must be able to be upfront and honest with each other and ourselves. I am learning that day by day in my industry of film/television with so much dramatization, you can’t seem to delineate between what is fact or fiction: real or fake. What you must do is take each day with a grain of salt and grow from it.

Challenges are not meant to break you but help you learn.

Every day we overcome our adversities. Actors and artists are real people too! I think Continue reading
