Daily Dose—GIVE THANKS

Daily Dose—GIVE THANKS

  Worry taking up too much space?   Give thanks instead!   When the worry monster takes over—about money, about relationships, about work, about holiday guests—acknowledge it, note it and then replace it with giving thanks instead!  Replace worry by thinking about who and what you are actually grateful for and give thanks for it and for them. Replace worry by feeling thankful. Replace worry by saying thank you. Replace worry by taking action to assuage that worry and get to a place of thankfulness.  Be aware when worry takes up too much space so you can shift and take action or release and let go.  Let worry motivate you to be thankful and take action!...

Creating 2015—Day 324 to Day 328: GIVING THANKS

I’m in a thankful state of mind this morning.  Not very original considering tomorrow is Thanksgiving.  But hey, I’m thankful for feeling thankful and thankful Thanksgiving is tomorrow to shift me into a state of gratitude.  It’s such a beautiful place to exist. I’m thankful for the wonderful creative meeting I had this past weekend with Screenwriter Cindy on our film project, The Botox Party.  She recently moved into a new home and its energy and hers are grounded and expansive and I love being there with her creating!  I’m thankful for the awesome slumber party I had Monday night with my best friend and actress, writer, producer extraordinaire, Finnerty Steeves....

Daily Dose—YOU CAN DO IT

Daily Dose—YOU CAN DO IT

Afraid you’ll fail? Do it anyway!   Whatever it is, you can do it!  The only way to succeed is to first fail.  If we don’t fail, how will we ever figure anything out?   How will we ever know what works or what doesn’t work?  How will we ever know what matters enough to not give up?  Success is the result of failure or more likely a long string of failures.  Giving up is the only failure that is permanent. If you stop writing, you’ll never know if you could write an entire book.  If you stop drawing, you’ll never know if you could paint your dreams.  If you stop acting, you’ll never know if you could do a one-woman show.  If you stop working towards whatever it is...

Creating 2015—Day 322:   I’M EXPANDING!

Yes, my ass is expanding.  Unfortunately.  But that’s not what I’m talking about today!  What I’m referencing is the expansion of how I produce and what I am open to producing.  This past summer, I had the opportunity to work with Uh-mazing Romantic Partner creating and developing reality show concepts for a development deal he got, which was an unexpected blessing plus super fun and creative!  The experience, which is ongoing, really opened my mind to new arenas of creativity for me.  It made me take off my, “I only make movies” blinders. Now that my blinders have been tossed in the trash, I am excited to venture into a new creative arena for me: scripted series....

Creating 2015—Day 321:    SUPPORT INDIE FILM

Yesterday, I had lunch with an indie film producer pal of mine I just adore…Mark Stolaroff.  He’s talented and a rare commodity in Hollywood…he’s a super nice guy!  I met him when I took his class, “The Art & Science of No-Budget Filmmaking” in August of 2012.  I loved the class and I made my first no budget feature film five months later.  I highly recommend it if you’re about to make an indie film or any film for that matter.  He not only teaches how to make films for 50 bucks and some twine, he’s also out there making them himself!  He’s truly in the trenches of being an indie filmmaker. His first feature premiered at Sundance back in 2001.  The...

Creating 2015—Day 319 to Day 320: DREAMS FOR 2016

I sit at my desk, green tea on one side of my laptop, a small green notepad on the other.  The early morning sun pours in from the window.  A perfect moment.  I capture it with a selfie for this post.  What’s on my mind?  My dreams for 2016! The small green notepad holds them, a list of nine.  I love lists!  I got that love from my mother.  She’s a major list-maker from as far back as I can remember.  Scribbled at the top is “2016.”  Below it, a list of my top dreams for the year.  Only the first two are technically personal.  The remaining seven are creative work projects, all in various stages—from an idea to films in the can that need to be finished and distributed....
