What are you throwing out there?

Happy April,

This month was busy all because I threw it out there!  On Facebook, February 23rd, I posted a message that said, “I would like to do an independent film, just thought I would throw it out there.” 4 weeks later, someone reached out to me about an indie film and 5 days later, I was on a plane to Dallas to shoot the film for 3 weeks. My character’s name is Faith in a movie called, Steps of Faith where Tracey Ross (Passions) and Ted Lange (Love Boat) play my parents.
Since, I was a kid, I always threw things I wanted out into the universe. I remember when I needed a photographer, I focused on it everyday. The next week, I ran into photographers everywhere! Even when I was driving down the streets of LA, photographers would throwtheir cards into my car and say, “I am a photographer, I would love to shoot you.” Finally, photographer, Tim Alexander stopped me & said he not only wanted to shoot me but do my website as well. That website became so popular in the tv/film industry, I would have random people stop me and say, “I loved your photos on your website. I would love to put you in my upcoming project.”
I remember wanting to meet Will Smith and Jada Pinkett-Smith. I focused on that for 2 months. I didn’t personally meet them but they hired me on their show! The role I booked was already offered to another actress but after my audition, they gave me the role and offered the other actress another character on a different episode.
What is it that you need to throw out there and believe you will get it/achieve it? I just finished a book called The Alchemist, by Paulo Coelho. I had the audio book for years but never listened to it and I finally did this week. The book confirmed for me what happened for me this month. It was a reminder that when you want something, all the universe conspires in helping you to achieve it. My challenge for you is to write the vision down on paper & focus on it. Throw it out there. I had a vision that took a year, but it happened because I believed it. I had faith. It can happen for you as well. Audio link to The Alchemist.
If you are in the Richmond, Virginia area I am excited to say we will be performing Lady Patriot again, May 23rd - May 25th. It is an excellent show and by far, one of the best plays ever written. You won’t be disappointed.   Tickets for Lady Patriot- Richmond, Virginia

Remember that wherever your heart is, there you will find your treasure. You’ve got to find the treasure, so that everything you have learned along the way can make sense. – The Alchemist
