I honestly don’t know why I am not working in the entertainment industry. I can’t tell you how much I love music, dance, and performances. I’m one of those closeted “America’s Got Talent” and “The Voice” watchers. I think it’s kind of embarrassing and wouldn’t really talk about it with anyone, yet I just go crazy for those kinds of shows.
Even more embarrassing is the fact that I always find myself crying while watching! What the heck is that all about? After a lot of time analyzing this nutty phenomenon, I’ve come to the conclusion that I feel incredibly inspired by people who have found such beautiful ways of expressing themselves.
So I’ve decided to use this inspiration to help myself out. After working several hours this morning, I found myself a bit ‘stuck’ and frustrated. I decided to take a break and watch a few auditions of the most recent “The Voice” episode.
I found it very helpful to unplug from my work and to watch someone else’s creativity and beauty. A couple of contestants in particular, John Martin and Jessie Pitts, blew me away.
I was then able to return to work feeling much more positive and inspired. Though I’m not much of a singer, I recognize that I am great at what I do, and I can see my own beauty being reflected back to me from others who inspire me.
If you are also feeling a bit frustrated or stuck, perhaps spending some time watching or meeting with someone inspirational would help you too. And obviously, it doesn’t have to be a contestant on a cheesy TV show!
If that doesn’t work for you, feel free to contact me for some one-on-one help!
