Life is mysterious, full of wonder and surprise, and if you allow yourself to live in each moment, you will enjoy the ride of your lifetime. A few months back I received a call out of the blue, the voice on the other end said “you came highly recommended to me for this upcoming video project I’m working on”. ME?!? I thought to myself, as the voice continued on “I was told you were beautiful, photographed well, and had a
great speaking voice”. I could not control the smile that took over my face and heart. The project is for a University nursing program that wanted to hire me to shoot five, 60 minute videos that provide new nurses with clinical simulations. I’m the “expert nurse” who stars in and narrates the video……SERIOUSLY……..Um, dream come true! Sure I say trying not to sound too excited, and thankful she could not see me leap from my bed and happy dance. I was beyond honored that someone thought so highly of me that they would recommend me for such an important project……….you never know who has their eyes on you!! Live RIGHT!
I recently signed the contract (which limits me to disclosing too much information), and received my scripts. Can I just say, standing in the mirror rehearsing my scripts brought tears to my eyes…….in my youth, my looks and speech were things people criticized and taunted me about, yet in my adult life both have provided me with many opportunities and income.
I spent so many years being hung up on my imperfect smile, gap tooth, full lips, under bite and proper speech; in my youth I believed there was something wrong with me. Funny, how life and growth allows you to see and believe all those imperfections make you the unique beautiful you. I’m accomplishing things that once seemed so unattainable to me, because of my insecurities. Today I’m literally living my dreams because of those imperfections……although this is a shameless pat on my back, it’s also a message to those that have not realized who they are, how beautiful they are, despite all the outside chatter. Know you can accomplish ANYTHING you set your mind to as long as you love, believe and honor yourself!! I’m internally and externally BEAUTIFUL and I KNOW IT!!!

Since late last year everything LOVE has been placed in my path. I recently had a conversation with a friend, I said to my friend "2014 is my year of being, living, giving, & receiving love". And this love covers all relationships, not just our partner. Anywhoo, without getting all deep on y'all, I find today the perfect day to repost this gentle reminder for ALL, including myself. #betheloveyouwanttoreceive
