Expression!

After I posted yesterday, I allowed myself to sink into my feelings. I finished Henry VI trilogy by my old friend, Shakespeare and continued reading the gothic magna Godchild. After a couple of hours, my grief quietly changed because I allowed it in.

This morning, I woke up to beautiful blue sky and wispy clouds. My heart smiled. That's not to say I still don't miss my Sean. I do. I can enjoy the day because I let myself feel all my feelings.

I know everyone has issues they struggle with. A key to helping cope with life is Expression!! Seriously, because smothering down our feelings cause depression, repression and any other thing you want to attach to it. How do you express yourself? You paint, write, draw, act, cook, bake, craft, dance, read, etc. Let it flow channeled into healthy things you love to do. Those feelings need freedom!! Only you can let them out.

I have been swimming with the idea of creating a acting class. One that really helps people to free themselves. A key to being an good actor or in any field is to have a full bodied expression in our lives. As Obi wan would say "You must unlearn what you have learned." A lot of stuff we carry are from other people: rules, behaviors, thoughts. We need to revolutionize our minds!

I could talk about this all day. I have errands I must do. I'm going to leave you with my Hugh Jackman; He is going to show you how to start off your day. As always, Sweet Dreams to you all.

I'm glad you're feeling more alive

Love hearing Hugh singing that song again - even if it was Shuler Hensley who knocked my socks off in that production!

Take it from a retired acting teacher...be careful of giving too much of yourself to others to use up. It's one thing to be a guide - another to be the meal. - just sayin'

Wow, what a clip! I had never actually heard Hugh Jackman sing before and that was amazing. Thanks for sharing that.
