Go Momma!

I am embarking on a new journey in blogger land.  The title of my next blog website will be released mid-December.  The only catch is I am still trying to figure out how to create this blog without a technical guru of some sort.  But it must be done.  It will be done. I keep reminding myself, you can do this!  It can’t be that difficult. So far, step by step using my brain, we are getting somewhere.  I am not sure where, but I will figure this out.

I appreciate the 600 something followers of my current blog and invite you to come along with me on the next phase of this adventure called life.  I will continue to learn about you and perhaps we can collaborate, share, and support bloggers out there together.

I am thrilled to announce mommapreneurship.com.  This is starting out as a way for me to express myself as a mother and creative entrepreneur.  My hope is for this blog to reach mothers who are thinking about entrepreneurship or who are “fully” entrepreneurs themselves.  As a mom, I will be asking questions like, “How can we have it all?”  “How will I balance both roles of being an entrepreneur and a mother?”

One Moment at a Time

You are probably singing right now…”One moment in time….” but I seriously meant ” One Moment at a Time” as post title.  Why? Because all it takes is one moment in time to realize our true potential.  This Tuesday marked the 3rd week of Core Film Class at Art Sake’s Studio.  I have been enjoying the heck out of this class.  I am learning to trust my impulses in acting and to be more “in the moment”.

This week I am realizing that doors continue to open.  I feel there is limitless possibilities and potential in our world.  Sometimes the doors that open are right in front of our eyes, and we fail to notice for one reason or another.  So that is where “mindfulness” comes in.  When I slow my mind down and focus on the emotions, what is bubbling up under the surface; the answers begin to appear. So I encourage you to do the same.  Go to Google and click on “Guided Imagery”, meditations or take a local yoga class.  It really does make a significant different on your day while also bringing clarity to what is bubbling up.

This week was exciting!  Stay tuned, as my friend Georgia and I just began pre production on our co-write.  We will be posting our new song this summer.  Also, I will be an extra in a local Indie film called ” Hope for Harmony” to be taped this upcoming week.

Not much more to say, as its Friday “Eve”.  We are all tired, right?  Time to renew, repair and reboot for the next week.

Live. Love. Create.

The Magic

I am reading this awe-inspiring book called ” The Magic” by Rhonda Byrnes. It from the series of books beginning with The Secret, then “The Power” and now “The Magic” regarding the Law of Attraction.  There is a paragraph at start of first chapter which truly captures the essence of “The Magic”.

It reads “I am here to tell you that the magic you once believed in is true, and it’s the disillusioned adult perspective of life that is false. The magic of life is real and it’s as real as you are.  In fact, life can be far more wondrous than you ever thought it was as a child, and more breathtaking, awe-inspiring, and exciting than anything you’ve seen before.  When you know what to do to bring forth the magic, you will live the life of your dreams.  Then, you will wonder how you ever could have given up in believing in the magic of life!”

The key discussed at the start of this book.  And I say “start” because I have just begun reading this book.  The key is one word: Gratitude.  Yes, many of us daily give thanks for “our bread”, friends, family and say thank you to the stranger who kindly opens the door.  However, the author challenges us to give an abundance of thanks with intention and regularly.  There is a 28 day journey to bring forth the magic into your life by gratitude detailed in the book.  The book also provides activities to increase gratitude.

So I want to say a big THANK YOU to Rhonda Byrne and the team that created this book “The Magic”.  Why?  Because the more I give; the more magical my life becomes.  As Willie Nelson (singer-songwriter) quotes ” When I started counting my blessings, my whole life turned around.”  I have been aware of gratitude and believe I am a grateful person.  However, I can be doing so much more to express gratitude and give back.

I hope that this blog inspires you, the reader, to continue your journey of attracting magic to your life.  Give, give, give!!!

With Appreciation,

Kimberly

Today

Yesterday I asked myself “How will I dive in?” In my recent blog post, I announced the start of a journey which will require 100 percent commitment to my singing, acting and writing.  I asked myself, “How will I do it?”  Then I began to hear the response “You just will.”  I began processing this question like a counselor would do.  There is no clear-cut solution and I cannot control the outcome.  As I have said to my clients in the past “Trust the process.”  But it is so HARD to do.  And then the little voice whispers “it doesn’t have to be hard, it’s as difficult as you allow it to be.”  Yet I believe I can make choices and use free will to increase my odds of going down the “right” path.  As I continued to ponder this question, I asked my husband who was sitting in the passenger seat of our car.  I said ” How will I swim once I dive in?”  His response intrigued me.  He said, “Just plug your nose when you dive in!”  I began giggling and contemplating his words.  Then he followed his first statement with “Stay in the shallow end.”   My gut reaction was to giggle and my thoughts were ” I want to jump into the deep end of the pool.”  Hmmmm…this is a metaphor and I believe its true meaning will reveal itself.  Until then, good night and talk to you later!

Oh yeah, I had an audition this morning for a Marriott Commercial.  It was pretty cool as I got to dress in workout attire and pretended to get ready for the gym during the audition.  Not so shabby!  You never know with these types of auditions are looking for, as there is so much typecast.  I was suppose to pass for a Caucasian/Hispanic female.  Grateful for the audition. The director said at the end “Thanks for being prepared!” I appreciated the feedback.  If its meant to be it will be.  I’ve learned not to be attached to the outcome.

DIVE IN

Have you ever wanted something so badly, in your life, that you would do just about anything to get it?  Well that is how I feel about singing, acting and writing.  This is my life’s passion, my life’s work.  I feel I have been following a calling to achieve these dreams since early childhood.  Life has had its ups and downs.  I have traveled in many exciting directions. But there is only one direction that continues to grab my attention.  That’s right, I am about to not walk, not run, not jump…to DIVE IN.

I recently resigned from a position as Licensed Mental Health Counselor.  I spent a few years growing as a therapist and supporting individuals and families with their life’s challenges.  It dawned on me after several life changing experiences; that there is no better time than the present, to pursue my dream full-time.  You see, I tried the 50/50 approach.  I wanted to do “all” of what I enjoyed.  I thought I could be a counselor, actor, singer, mom, wife all at the same time.  What I discovered is that this does not work for me.  Something had to give.  The most important role is being a mom, wife, friend and of course, a friend to myself.  I needed to practice better self-care.

I’d encourage my patients to practice better self-care and support them in pursuit of their highest good.  However, I found myself questioning if I had done the same.  Over the past few years, I have auditioned for commercials, sang for contests and submitted for roles. However, this was sporadic and time constrained.  And so with that being said, I am choosing a new direction.  It is time to DIVE IN!

From now on, this blog will chronicle my “diving in” to the unknown seas of the future.   What I do know for sure is that I have a clear vision.  What I don’t know is how this vision will come to fruition.  I am letting go of a desire to know the outcome, to control the situation because I realize I can only surrender to a higher plan.  Yes, it will be work on my part and I do believe in free will.  But when you are doing work you love; it’s not really work.  I realize that I will be doing a majority of the change making.

Buckle your seat belts, and come along for this journey I’m about to embark upon.  It will begin here in Winter Park, Florida.
