I can't believe we are already in 2016.
2015 definitely has been a year to remember. Making some great new friends, challenging myself in different ways by getting involved with improv, finding a calling to help others feel inspired and motivated to live happier, healthier lives, and the list can go on and on.
I had such a great time back east( luckily it stayed above average temperatures when we were there!) spending quality time with family. I didn't get to see everybody I would have liked, but so happy to be blessed enough to make it back to see any one at all.
It was also a hard one for me for this was the first Christmas going home and my grandmother was not there. It was tradition to always go and visit her and crack jokes, tell stories and just be in her presence. But, this year, I only got to visit her in spirit. She was the best grandmother I could have ever asked for and I know she is happy where she is, reunited with my grandfather, and staying close by as I continue to pursue my dreams
Yes, bittersweet and sad but she is always with me and not a day goes by I don't think of her and my grandfather
Being in West Virginia felt so great to be back, and yet, it felt so small. Nothing seemed to changed except how BIG my niece and nephews were getting! These faces seriously make me smile and warm my heart. I love them so much and am very blessed to be their aunt. It was definitely hard to say goodbye to these 3!
After spending a week in West Virginia, it was time to head out to see Corey's side of the family in New Jersey. We got to see family we have not seen in a year as well as see some of our friends. I feel like I could seriously just post picture after picture for we did SO Much, but I do not want this blog to be an extremely long one( those that know me, know I tend to keep going & going when I get inspired!!)
I will say this, being away and with family was VERY MUCH NEEDED, but now that we are back, it is time to get serious and get to work!
I did happen to make a New Year's Resolution-- it is not about getting healthier- for I am in a pretty great habit now and that would not challenge me
This year, I am challenging myself to be more organized and prepped with my schedule so I am productive and not just "busy". I will admit, I am a horrible organizer & all over the place, but I got my planner and I intend to keep track of everything that I have scheduled, set hours for my work and make it a way of habit.
I am ready to keep going out of my comfort zone and go after what I want with my life. We can live your purpose, but we have to be ready and willing to do the things we need to do to achieve them---that is where the organization comes in. Have a goal, write them down, and make an action plan in how you will get there.
I will be lying if I said I got this- but I am scared. It is out of my comfort zone- not knowing what lies ahead, but I am going to give it my all, go after my dreams and make this the best year yet!
This month is full of sending out ships to target agencies I would like to work with, casting directing workshops, and back to improv and Anthony Meindl's Actor's Workshop
Don't let your fear of the unknown stop you from living your purpose. It won't be easy, we will have bumps and bruises along the way, but how great will it feel when you accomplish it?
Here's to an AMAZING 2016 and I can't wait to see what lies ahead!
