Welcome To My World
Have you ever asked yourself the question “Where do I start?”.
I’m sure you have, because it’s a question I ask myself all of the time. Finding the answer to that question can be difficult. For example, I have been consistently writing every single day for the past 6 years, but no one has read a single word. Until now.
I’ve always thought of myself as a writer. Years ago, I began filling books with my original poetry and started putting all of my thoughts and emotions down on paper. My advice to you: if you are thinking about doing something so often that it becomes the only thing on your mind, just go for it, all the way!
Now that I am finally starting my blog, my intention is to use it as an outlet to share a more vulnerable side of myself and for every word to be meaningful, positive, and impactful to my readers. I would describe myself as an artist before anything else. As a child, I would draw and paint on an easel, perform magic shows, produce dance numbers, and create obstacle courses for my friends. I was constantly creating, and I still am today.
The art of creativity, in all forms, is what makes me feel alive. Looking back on my life now as an adult, I realize that my desire for creative fulfillment has lead me down roads and career paths I could have never imagined when I was younger. My 15-year journey in pageantry, my passion for acting and modeling, and my career in experiential marketing and media relations have all benefited directly from my passion for creativity.
I do so many different things, and I’ve always been this way. Although creativity has always been my true passion (in all forms), it has also been that one thing that I find to be truly therapeutic (with the exception of the beach). I hope that through this blog you will find ways to connect with me about what matters most to you personally. I also want to connect you with others who are in the same or similar places on their own unique journeys.
Believe it or not, I spent this past New Years Eve in complete silence and solitude. This was actually a choice that chose me. Sitting there alone, knowing that the rest of the world was out there celebrating with friends and family, was uncomfortable in some ways. However, it ended up being exactly what I needed for where I am right now in my life. It reminded me that at the end of each day, I will only have myself to rely on. It made me reflect on the moments of my life when I felt like I was in the completely wrong place, with the wrong people, simply because I felt alone and misunderstood.
The lesson I learned is to always do what you believe in and fully commit to it. Each and every time I’ve done this, I’ve achieved exactly what I set out to do. You will never see it happen until you are committed to it. Most people won’t even take a swing at their dreams. You must be willing to take action, even when you think that the time or situation is not ideal. Many people will never take that chance, but I do! Any time I’ve taken a chance, especially when it was something that truly scared the crap out of me, it was the best possible thing that I could have done for myself at the time.
Remember - if you can believe it, you can see it. It’s not the other way around. Today I’ve taken that leap to show you that you can do whatever you put your mind to. Thank you for joining me on my journey. The best is yet to come!
