Today, I want you to look for the beauty.

If you have a rough moment, thought, experience.. take a moment, take a breath, and look around you. The world is such an amazing place and sometimes it’s the little things that can turn a day around.

A smile from a stranger, paying for someone’s Starbucks order, driving in the car with the windows down blasting your favorite song and singing along, getting a hug from someone that you care about, being around the people who make you feel like YOU.

Things may not be perfect, things may not be how you expected them to, but things will be okay.

Daily reminders:

- It’s okay to not be okay. Have a hot drink and go to bed.

- Stop expecting the worst. It’s possible to find positivity in even the worst situation.

- If someone makes a joke that you don’t find funny, you don’t have to laugh. You don’t have to react at all.

- If someone makes a joke that you find offensive, you can let them know.

- Speaking your mind WON’T make people like you less. Being rude or mean WILL

- A little kindness goes a long way. It’s free, and you’ll make a lot more friends too.

- Kindness towards yourself also counts. Don’t forget that.

- Don’t go to bed angry. That applies to family, friends and anyone else who matters enough to make you angry.

- It applies to you too. Make peace with yourself before you go to bed.

- No matter how you feel today, tomorrow will be a different story. Strap yourself in and hold on tight, buckaroo.

—  10 things you already know but still need to be reminded every so often //
All too often women believe it is a sign of commitment, an expression of love, to endure unkindness or cruelty, to forgive and forget. In actuality, when we love rightly we know that the healthy, loving response to cruelty and abuse is putting ourselves out of harm’s way.

Daily Reminder:

If you are a boy who dreams of playing Elphaba or Galinda 

Don’t give up

If you are a girl who dreams of playing Mark Cohen or Roger Davis

Don’t give up

You have every right to dream of playing your favorite character regardless of gender binaries or roles. You can get so many places with hard work and determination. Theatre should always be a safe place to express yourself.

Break a leg!


I can’t wait to see your name in lights.  

Everything is Temporary.

God is eternal, but He made everything else temporary… and although that sounds depressing, it can actually be so encouraging. Trials are temporary, and so is pain. So, the heartache you face now won’t last forever. You’ll get through it. All feelings are fleeting, and life is a wave of happiness and trials which all lead up to eternity where we can experience our Heavenly Father’s love up close, forever.
