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.
