Sunday SoulJourn: Entertainment Path

I soljourned this weekend to one of my favorite places in the United States – Los Angeles! Some say it’s a big city like all the others: loud, noisy, overcrowded with buildings and people. For them, that may hold true. I see it differently. I feel at home there, as though the artistic spirit flutters, pleading to soar free. I sense kindred spirits, creative energy, and a palpable electricity.

From the time I was quite young, I envisioned myself in an artistic career. I just didn’t know how it would take shape or where I would fit. I also suffered from a lack of self-confidence and belief that I could succeed and thrive in a harshly criticized world of entertainment. Would I get swallowed up by personalities more forceful and passionate? Would I let others walk all over me? Would I question my skills and value when confronted with someone who has more experience or expertise?

I let those questions impede my progression, never taking steps toward that journey. I think back to the young girl who dreamed big and lived small. I don’t know whether she would have lasted in the rumored cutthroat world, but the woman I am today moves forward with confidence in myself, my talents, and my value. I’m ready to learn, absorb, and connect in an industry I respect and admire.

I am a writer, singer, jewelry designer, and theatre enthusiast. I use various forms of artistic expression for personal reflection, community discussion and creative inspiration. My premiere novel encapsulates all of the above. Follow along on my journey towards an artistic career!
