Every no you get in the business gets you that much closer to a yes -Tom Boyd

Some thoughts today, my friends:

I just spoke to someone about their ambitions and passion for their craft of videography. In short, it was empowering, inspiring, and completely mesmerizing to hear of the struggles and successes this person has equally experienced. It got me thinking of my love of writing. Everyone has their stories like this yes, but I feel especially for creative industries, you come to appreciate the fight to stay at it every day. You evolve and improve, you stay the same and regress, but you keep.at.it.

I have been writing professionally since I was 10 years old. I wrote for my elementary school newspaper and my mom still displays my article from the local town paper. Well, the paper ran through all of the Treasure Coast, but I don't want to brag ;) I've also pursued writing academically for both undergrad and grad degrees and managed to study all variations of it: technical, creative, professional, news reporting. The commitment is real, y'all.

I've written for several publications in the great city of Orlando and I always aim to add more (Shameless plug. As Carly J said all last summer, and the one before that, Call Me, Maybe):) I have managed to maintain this blog space for four years. Four years! I have certainly had my lapses in time for contributing consistently but she is here and she is mine. My other website is another space I am so proud to say I have created as well and reflects not only a time in my life I will never forget (grad school), but a transition of my writing and my self most definitely.

The point of all of this, yes there is one, is that for every day you try and each opportunity you make or take to give it your best, you are doing what you intended. Money, fame, power, any other incentive is just simply icing on the already delicious funfetti cake you have created. Keep at it. When you don't think you can, you CAN. Take down days, discouragements, missed moments, and file it into the experience you want to be part of. Because the a-ha moments are sometimes few and far but man they are powerful.

I am writer, hear me roarrrrrr!


Til we meet again,

Anything is possible with sunshine and a little pink -Lilly Pulitzer

Today is a good day, my friends. Today means at the 6 o'clock hour I shall enter a four day weekend. Full of what, you ask? So far on the agenda is:

-trying out a very new and deliciously enticing restaurant known as Cooper's Hawk and Winery;
-finishing the rest of season 5 and all of season 6 for Sons of Anarchy-which is phenom BTW;
-and enjoying the beautiful weather we are projected to experience, with extra SPF of course.

I like to call this agenda a little something known as living the American dream indeed.

Oh and I'll be toting around my newly obtained Kate Spades. Surprise 75% off sale, what? I CANNOT wait for the tote! I'll give you a hint until I can show the new ol'gal off #baconeggandcheeseplease :):)

Any how, I have to go shopping now ( Love a good Pretty Woman reference) get to finishing my day so the fun can begin. Hope everyone has a safe, fun, relaxing good time. Or go wild and have to retrace events to determine how good it really was. Ju…
