Good morning Wednesday! Lean in… Clearly it’s been awhile since my last entry but been a bit pre-occupied with getting all my little ducks in a row for my upcoming NYC book launch, May 13th! The journey leading up to this event has been full and enlightening. When I needed to reschedule it, due to hurricane Sandy hitting New York on the same evening, it reminded me how to surrender to designs larger than myself. It forced me to take a deep breath and once again trust the process. Because of that gear shift, I am more grateful and even more excited to have a second opportunity at sharing my story in this way! I hope whoever reads this, will join me, my friends, family, and community of artists in celebrating this phase of my creative journey while adding to the ongoing and needed fundraising for Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS!! See you there XX
Good morning last day of 2012! Lean in.. I thought I would share a poem that I love and that I feel really embodies the spirit of my husband, whom I have tried to steal the best from I re-read it and am always aware of how much work I still need to do. I share it with all of you, hoping it will inspire the very best in all of US in 2013!!-
To be so strong that nothing
can disturb your peace of mind.
To talk health, happiness, and prosperity
to every person you meet.
To make all your friends feel
that there is something in them
To look at the sunny side of everything
and make your optimism come true.
To think only the best, to work only for the best,
and to expect only the best.
To be just as enthusiastic about the success of others
as you are about your own.
To forget the mistakes of the past
and press on to the greater achievements of the future.
To wear a cheerful countenance at all times
and give every living creature you meet a smile.
To give so much time to the improvement of yourself
that you have no time to criticize others.
To be too large for worry, too noble for anger, too strong for fear,
and too happy to permit the presence of trouble.
To think well of yourself and to proclaim this fact to the world,
not in loud words but great deeds.
To live in faith that the whole world is on your side
so long as you are true to the best that is in you. ”
