I want to talk about set-backs, because that’s what’s on my mind.
I’ve found this super power, if you will, that allows me to do the things I want with my time and be ambitious about the goals I set for myself. The best thing about this power is that I feel like nothing is out of my ability, I can handle whatever crazy adventures I set out for myself and I’m always confident that things will work.
The set-back, the worst thing about this power is knowing that you have to survive but having no idea how.
You’re faced with a problem that you know you can master, but there’s nowhere to start and even if you can get going with it there’s nothing around to tell you that you’ve made a good choice.
And honestly, the more you see it as a problem, the harder it’s going to be to solve.
You see your job as a problem because you hate it, the relationship you’re in hurts you, or you’re tired of living where you live.
This isn’t being stuck. You don’t belong to any person or place, these are all things that are easily escaped.
What gets you stuck is the idea in your own mind that you have no way out. But even that idea of “getting out” is what’s keeping you there. You think you’re putting energy into “getting out” but the more you see it that way, the more stuck you’ll be.
I think it’s common to feel like we have things to get over. Some things take time to heal if they were hard to get through or they left us with things that we have to sift through.
I get this. I’m familiar with being stuck like this….it’s daunting and you’re scared; there is no marker labeled “start here” or “go in this order.”
There’s no time table that says “it will take you this long to get over this.”
You just have to start working, move…physically move if you have to. The thing that I’ve come to tell myself most often is that you have to learn new ways to think every second.
Most of the time that takes me to my books. The more I read, the calmer I become about the problem I’m facing and the next thing I know I’m writing down my own solution.
It’s a bit like climbing a mountain…the things you thought you understood when you were standing at the bottom come out much different on the way up.
On set for a new exciting project out soon! Xx

sugarshannon said: So I hope you see this in time but I'm going to an agency open call tomorrow. When they take polaroids do I smile or do the pout/blue steel? haha Any other advice would be greatly appreciated. :)
Ahhh so exciting! Mix it up, they’ll take a few photos! Smile first then hit them with some different looks!
Wear something flattering that makes you feel really good! And OWN it! ;)
I hope I got back to you in time! Let me know how it goes!! Xx
