Living the Dream: What does Robert DeNiro Do?

Sometimes I ask myself, “What does Robert DeNiro do day-to-day?” Of course, you can substitute Mr. DeNiro’s name with that of any big star, because, frankly, it’s not that I wonder specifically about Mr. DeNiro, but that I wonder about big celebrities in general. I mean, day-too-day, when they’re not filming on a set somewhere, […]

Living the Dream:  Surprise Garden Update

Since I’m living my dream, and one of my dreams is to start growing organic, nutritious vegetables for my family, I thought I’d give you all the Garden Tower 2 (which I call my “Surprise Garden”) update. Easy Peasy As I thought, the Garden Tower 2 is really simple to put together, especially because I […]

LIVING A DREAM: Fresh Organic Vegetables

For my whole life—not just while living my dream—I have ALWAYS come up with new “projects,” and this time I’m hoping it’ll provide me with Fresh, HOME GROWN, Organic Vegetables. I know, there’s a lot of eye-rolling going on in Tennessee at this little announcement, but the more I read about the chemicals in the […]

Living the Dream: Support is Vital

One of the most important things needed during the dream chase (and living the dream) is the support of family and friends.  It’s not something that most actors/dreamers/doers talk about for fear of sounding weak and needy and ineffective.  The simple fact that one takes the initiative to listen to their heart’s calling, though, is […]

LIVING THE DREAM:  WITHOUT A SAFETY NET

All along the Chase and Living the Dream, one of the things I knew—but it didn’t live in my guts until recently—was that I took that leap WITHOUT A SAFETY NET.  There was no Plan B, no Back-Up Plan, no life preserver for what might happen if I couldn’t make it.  Think about that for just […]

Living the Dream: College & Lovie

Part of living my dream has included something I never expected:  being back in college full-time.  Even in trying to imagine what my future might be, I could NOT have dreamed that I would be returning to college. Fear and Trepidation I admit that I was excited to be going back to school, primarily because […]

Living the Dream: I LOVE Being Me!

In all my years on this earth, I could not have imagined how often—once I actually began living the dream—I would awaken and think, “I LOVE being me!” What? I know that there are dozens of people who don’t even know me and have passed me somewhere and thought, “Oh, poor woman.” This was especially […]

Living the Dream: Importance of Teachers

One of the things I have found to be important in living my dream is the teachers I have had along the way.  I don’t mind sounding like a nerd when I say I LOVED school.  I loved being around my friends, but I also absolutely LOVED learning, and I was so extremely fortunate to have […]

Living A Dream: Here’s Great Protection!

I have to say that even while living my dream, I easily recognize the constant need for and importance of protection. In these days of random attacks, unprovoked assaults and some of the violence that we see on the news every day, I am always on the lookout for innovative ways to protect myself, and […]

Living the Dream: Confidence Wins!

One of the best things about living the dream every day is the sense of self-confidence it gives me.  Now, I’ve never really had a problem with confidence and once upon a time when I was doing a meditation on success, the speaker instructed to “think of the most confident person you know.”  I had […]
