 Relax – Reflect – Create

You’ve taken time to relax and perhaps reflect on a year that’s now behind us. Now what? I’m not a big resolution maker, but I am a firm believer that we possess all we need to move forward and attain our goals. In order to make a change or adjustment in what we choose to do for ourselves in 2013, we might not need to start anew. What were the positive things attained over the past year? Moving forward this year, think about what was previously started and perhaps it’s from that point you’ll expand and create. Click the link for this month’s viddy…

One of the many wonderful volunteers who made our day clip along easily. I met Sienna when I was a guest teacher at Occidental. All grown up with a clear focus and thriving as an actor and voice over artist, Sienna was the best gatekeeper a gal could ever want!
