Don’t look now… but we are evolving.
Everything you see is a construct of our collective consciousness, but it is uniquely perceived by each one of us. For example, we can all look at the same adversities in the world, but have a range of emotional perspectives that can either inspire us or shut us down. The best part is that YOU get to decide.
Challenges show up because some part of us ASKED for an opportunity to improve upon ourselves.
We want to evolve. We aspire to BE SMARTER. So we create the opportunities that allow us to confront our deepest struggles head on. When we conquer them, we can choose to make an important contribution to the world simply by sharing our story.
We’ve made enormous advancements!
Don’t misunderstand. We’ve still got A LOT of work to do (and we’ll never get it done.)
There is no question that we are currently being challenged as a society, but you could argue that there were equally valuable moments in our history where we were just downright complacent.
When we are not aware of our true potential, we accept undesirable situations as normal. Women and minorities especially were careful not to pick battles that they didn’t think they could win. So they sat alone in their uneasiness feeling powerless and ineffective.
And so we began to share our truths with one another…
There is value in sharing YOUR STORY through YOUR EYES
Not only is it freeing to learn that you are not alone in your struggles by talking about it, writing about it, or laughing about it. Sharing it allows you to unleash the desire to GROW from it.
Growth is Awesome. It’s the best part of this human experience.
On Today’s Show
I am so excited to welcome on two incredibly inspiring women! Hollywood make-up artist Victoria Rowe and comedy actress Jennifer Elise Cox will be joining me in the studio to talk about their latest projects. Victoria is launching her new sitcom OVER THE COUNTER, portraying her real life experiences as a makeup artist in a department store. Jennifer, her real life best friend will be playing Victoria in the comedy series. I had the pleasure of meeting them both at their launch/viewing party a few weeks ago.
Victoria is a veteran makeup artist in Los Angeles and the producer/creator of the new sitcom pilot ‘Over the Counter’ about make up artists who work at the mall in the year 2000.
As an artist, Victoria has been the make-up department head for many feature films including Criticized and Wizardream, worked on music videos for artist like Carrie Hilson, and has done make-up for Lady Gaga’s dancers and band on their appearance on American Idol.
Jennifer Elise Cox combines a glowing personality with outlandish humor to invent her own comedic style. Jennifer burst on the scene in 1995 with her excellent yet underrated performance as middle child “Jan Brady” in “The Brady Bunch” movies. Growing up in New York City’s lower East Side, Jennifer dreamed of becoming an actress and at the very young age of 4 began her career acting in commercials. Before comedy and film Jennifer, a highly trained ballerina, performed dramatic roles in New York stage operas such as “Don Giovanni” and “Madame Butterfly” before “The Brady Bunch” movies set her on a path to create her unique comedic roles. She has appeared in numerous films and TV shows, such as Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, Edtv, Bewitched, The Backup Plan, Spooky Buddies and Stars in the upcoming indie comedy Out West, which she also produced. On Television Jennifer is considered one of Hollywood’s “go-to” improv comedic actresses, creating hilarious characters on Web Therapy, 10 Items or Less, Lovespring International as well as many memorable guest starring roles on CSI: NY, Will & Grace, Nip/Tuck, Six Feet Under, and so many more.
