Monthly Motivations

Standard

Better late than never! Who says you need to have your motivations at the top of the month? I sure don’t…this month. Listen, when times get busy it’s in the quiet moments when you have the opportunity to take stock of what’s been happening around you, and what you want to see for yourself in the weeks ahead.

As 2015, begins to wrap up, I have become cognizant of the little things that make my days go with ease, allowing me the freedom to create and appreciate the joy in my days. Hopefully, these little nuggets will push you to tackle that challenge staring you in the face.

Ciao 🙂

MMIA: Melissa Missing in Action

Standard

Hello blog world!

Although I know no one has been on the site for two weeks, I wish to greet you all the same.

Let me start off by saying, I am NOT sorry for being MIA. I take great joy in being able to say that I just have not had the time to sit and post photos, memories, and poems because the whirlwind of web series production has completely enveloped all of my free time.

Not only have I been in Shampagne production world, but add on top of that, my Adler Youth Shakespeare class, That Bachelorette Show, a new class in partnership with Pathways to Graduation, Rising Circle events and duties, and the continued NYU day job shuffle, its been pretty quiet on the NYDreaming front.

That being said, I have now determined I must return to the blog-o-sphere with a flourish! However, I’m not really sure how to go about it LOL.

So, I suppose the solution would be to just dive back in. Sure it’s October 12th, but look up and you’ll find my monthly motivations, and a dance video will be hitting the site this Friday (if I have enough media space. grrrr) Anyway, I am back, even while I haven’t really gone anywhere.

For those who stumble upon the page today, thanks for stopping by. For my avid readers, who have been pondering my whereabouts, welcome back! Persistent and Consistent, that’s the mantra for the year, so back on the blogging horse I go!

Ciao 🙂

52 New Weeks to Get it Right!

Standard

Happy New Year again everyone! I was able to bring in 2015 in a fabulous way, surrounded by my extended family, in formal wear, in Richmond. I was introduced to relatives I still had not met, danced the night away, spent time with my parents, and was confronted with the fact, yet again, of how blessed I am to be surrounded by a family that loves me and loves each other. 🙂

Okay, now that the gratitude is out of the way time to look ahead to the future and become grounded in the present. I found that my “Monthly Motivations” really helped me to cement my goals, priorities, and dreams for the upcoming month, and this year I’ll keep this practice going. Over the weekend I made a vision board for 2015, quotes, phrases, and photos that encompass all that I want to do, be, and become in regards to my personal and professional life. You can see a picture of my vision board on my Instagram roll towards the left of the screen. As far as a traditional New Year’s resolution, I have but one: To be consistent and persistent. That is all.

I hope you had a great holiday season and that the warm feelings and cheer bleed into the rest of your month and year, as much as possible. Happy New Year! Make it a great one 🙂

Ciao
