Happy Self Love Saturday!

My camera is broken ­čÖü It hurts me to type that. I gave it in to the repair shop yesterday and all the camera stores I went to gave me the same report that it would take 3-6 weeks because of the holidays…womp womp :(.

But as disappointed as I am the show must go on. That was the lesson for me this week, regardless whatever bumps, heart aches, unexpected repairs, and whatever other BS comes in your way, the show doesn’t stop! You have to keep going.

What is “the show”? The show is your goals, your dreams, your long term plans, your true self, your best self, it’s the thing that is most important to you — The path to this doesn’t stop because of stress, depression, defeat, financial strains etc. Stay focused on the course, deal with the problems as they come in the best way possible, in the way that serves you in the end. Learn the lesson, grow and prosper! All week that message has been slapping me in the face, asking me “what is important to you? Why? How will you do it?” ┬áI have a cough/cold right now and I had an audition yesterday where I had to sing SING 4 songs. So I tied my boot straps tight, drank all the tea my pantry had to offer, hot tottied my way to bed every night and sweat through all the layers of clothes I had on to make sure something resembling “Andrea the singer” would show up to my audition.

My camera’s broken but that doesn’t stop me from posting and talking about my weekly Self Love Message because it’s not about my camera in the end, it’s not about a super polished image and a bunch of likes, it’s about my journey and talking about it with the community of people who have constantly encouraged and inspired me to keep going.

The show must go on.

Today my message to you, is no matter what you’re going through, stay focused on the long term goal, ┬átake a deep breath, talk to a friend or family member if you can’t solve the issue on your own and aim for success. Your goals don’t stop, your growth don’t stop. YOU don’t stop! The show must go on.

New Web Series! New Web Series! New Web Series! I’m very excited to announce that on Wednesday March 9th I’ll be dropping the first part of my new show Beyond Complicated co-written by KarynRose Bruyning and myself!

Beyond Complicated is a show about the difficulties and day to day miscommunications that happen in a relationship. Each episode shows both the male and female lead’s perspective on their situation. ┬áThis is the 2nd scripted web series from my production company Jungle Wild and I was inspired to create from my girl friends and our own real life conversations about guys and how and why the sexes usually don’t understand each other. I am so proud of this show, the cast, and my awesome NY crew for helping me to produce another show! On March 9th be ready to join the conversation, pick a side and learn a little something about the complications of being in a relationship.

Happy Self Love Saturday!

Today I want to talk to you guys about the moment I discovered I needed self love more than ever┬ábefore and it was while I was in a relationship. I am naturally a very giving and selfless person and through out my life it has been both a gift and a curse. In the past when I’d be in a relationship I would be so concerned and focused on the needs of my partner that I would often end up forgetting about myself or putting my wants away in the back of my mind. I feared if I didn’t do everything for the person infront of me that they would leave me or think I wasn’t good enough, I was leading with fear. This was a terrible way to be, because I was putting my insecurities first and living with them instead of fixing them. I knew at this time that I needed self love. I was holding on to damage from my past experiences and living with a negative belief about myself and forgetting that inorder for my partner to be happy, I have to be happy as well and ignoring my wants and needs in this relationship was the last thing I needed to do. Check out my video below on how I discovered the importance of self love while being in a relationship.

(New Video Post) Relinquishing Control in Your Relationship #SelfLoveSaturday

Happy Self Love Saturday!

Recently I got a message from God, I say this because in one day I ended up having two separate conversations about the same topic. When something like that happens to me, I know it’s not coincidence, it’s a message and I have to take it seriously. The topic at hand was relationships and understanding, accepting and relinquishing control of the person infront of you. It’s sometimes hard to accept the fact that the people we’re in relationships with can change, love is a two way street and with that you have to accept that you cannot control the person infront of you. Acceptance of who they are and who they are becoming or grown to be will help you dealing with any┬áchanges happening. But just like everything else in life, our relationships change for a reason and at the end of the day you have to trust in God that he is always guiding you to the places and people that you are supposed to be with.
