Cause I’m So Happy :)

“It might be crazy what I’m about to say. Sunshine she’s here and I can take a break. Like a hot air ballon I can go to space, cause in the air I don’t care, I can find my way.” – Pharrel Williams

Well yes it’s really crazy what I am about to say (now).  It took me 20 years to realize what I am about to say. Everyday I wake-up and find my way to the center of my inner being, to know myself more today so that I can be acquainted with myself of tomorrow.  Now I can understand more of the greater purpose that I serve in the big dreams that I have.  My mindset has changed and now everyday I look forward to contributing to today.  This is what makes me happy.

I continue to be amazed at all the multimedia projects that I have worked on.   I believe in the powers of sharing stories as a vehicle towards mindfulness.  Simply put many of these projects were dreams that came to my mind with the intention of using them to promote awareness through stories.  This makes me happy.

For me, one of my creative gifts is producing stories from videos not only in an artistic way.  I am always striving towards the art of storytelling and cinematography.  This expands my creativity with camera gear and I know each video is better than the one before.   What’s more important is striving to produce (i.e. create) something from nothing in a way that I can only offer it to the world.  This is my gift of grace and I am happy to embrace it.

I love storytelling and the process of it because it has the potential to get into the soul of many and it brings about transparency.  One of the best feelings in the world is knowing that somebody can identify themselves within the character.  Each story takes a few days to film and probably a couple months or more to edit with endless revisions until it flows, sparkles and is then condensed into 6 minutes (or less).

I’m happy to fulfill my talent and purpose by being who I am.   I am happy to make a connection with people and to be trusted to safeguard their stories.  I am happy to have visited these amazing countries and to understand another person’s point of view. Cause I’m so happy to strive towards the goal and persevere to produce a great story.

Today is the day

Have you ever wondered why today is the day?

I am an avid reader and I read once that people can continue to live in the past and ask questions “why”, then have an inactive present which delivers a non-adventurous future.  Wow!! As Oprah Winfrey would say, “That’s an A-ha moment.”

Well that statement changed the trajectory of my life.  Because it is so true that wasted years are simply that: wasted years so why waste another year doing the same thing over and over again.  This process became revolutionary and after being stuck in a cycle of negativity which lead to an inactive present,  I focused more on the positives and surrendering all that was lost to the universe. To simplify what I just said, I accepted that I was not in control but a force greater than I was pulling the strings.

today is the day!

the most amazing and beautiful sunrise in Koh Samui, today is the day!

In its place, I chose to embark on story-telling as well as entrepreneurship as a focal point to express my gratitude towards a new beginning of experiences which can only happen today.  The universe slowly conspired to get me to where I needed to be and today I look forward to the next adventure of story-telling.

New experiences can never re-position themselves from the past and the future are of things yet to come. Today is the day and (not coincidentally) it is also the first day of the rest of your life.  Dream Big and imagine the possibilities of where your gifts and talents will take you.  I know for sure that seeing the sunrise in Koh Samui was out of this world but it would not of happened if I was stuck in a loop of nothingness.  I chose to have an active present to embrace that, “Today is the day!”
