There's this sense of ferocious intensity that I walked away from following this extraordinary conversation with my next guest that has left me both impacted and humbled. Passion - TRUE passion - is infectious and when you have the opportunity to witness and learn from it, you should take a second to stop and listen.
Throughout his career as a professional actor, screenwriter, director, producer, poet, motivational speaker( @bianchiexperience) and author, David Bianchi( @davidbianchi_official) is no stranger to the kind of experiences and life lessons rooted in dedication, commitment, discipline and personal growth that we aim to communicate on this program. When I came across an interview he gave on the Bollywood Meets Hollywood podcast in which he unabashedly laid out how, speaking of the Hollywood film industry, one should aim to chase your dream with no second guesses and no excuses...or otherwise, pick another dream.
David's energy is truly of the resounding kind. In this exchange, we tap into his deeper sense of purpose, living by your own set of standards, owning up to your frailties, acceptance of others as well as ourselves, dedication to serve...and so much more.
The stereotypical cynicism that arises when you think of people in Hollywood would often lead one to make comments about how it's all "fake" and "self-absorbed" and such...but lemme tell you, there are some genuinely passionate, authentically kind and remarkably warmhearted individuals out there as well. I got the meet with one of them and for that, I am truly grateful.

Worried about looking your best as you age? Start taking care of yourself now and you’ll have a head start on aging gracefully. Here are some simple steps to get started. 👉 DON’T SKIP THE SUNSCREEN
Exposure to the sun without proper protection can cause skin cancer, premature aging, and sunburns. To ensure you are protected, apply sunscreen liberally to any areas that will be exposed to the sun. It’s also important to wait until the sunscreen absorbs into the skin (approximately 30 minutes) before going outside. 👉 DRINK MORE WATER
Drinking water benefits your entire body, especially your skin. Because skin is an organ, it’s made up of many cells, and those cells are made up of water. Without proper hydration, skin can become flaky, tight, dry, and be more prone to wrinkles. 👉 START MOISTURIZING NOW
Both men and women should be using a quality moisturizer on their skin every day. Moisturizing is the key to healthy and youthful skin because it hydrates, softens, and causes skin to be more elastic. 👉 GET MOVING
Regular exercise makes it possible for you to look and feel younger. Exercising promotes the body’s production of the HGH hormone, which people often call the “fitness hormone.” This hormone promotes muscle growth and it also burns extra fat. Exercise has all kinds of other health benefits too: ▪️Reduces stress
▪️Improves your self-confidence
▪️Boosts “happy hormones”
▪️Boosts brain function
If you’re not used to exercising, it’s important to start slow to avoid overdoing it. Aim to be active at least 30 minutes every day. Ideas to get you moving include taking a walk with friends, dancing, doing housework, walking the dog, walking around when you’re on the phone, and working in the garden.
Aging isn’t something you can necessarily stop, but you can do things to slow down the process to look and feel young and healthy for longer. Aging gracefully is all about taking care of yourself, especially your skin and your body. Drinking plenty of water, exercising, getting the recommended seven to eight hours of sleep at night, reducing stress, and keeping your skin moist are all things you can do now to ensure you age gracefully.
Spirit and matter are not separate. Your soul essence is limitless and free. Take a moment to feel the flow of universal energy within you and around you. Immerse yourself in this love-fuelled substance.
Cutest assistant EVER! Just snoozin 😴 while Mama gets training done for work and gets her hustle time in for her coach biz!
These days, even home, I really feel like I'm against the clock! Between trying to catch up on sleep, tending to my little man days and nights, and working as fast as possible before my toddler returns from daycare, maternity leave is exhausting!😲
I am truly practicing what I preach and moving my business forward by working a solid hour a day on it! If I get a little bit more time each day, awesome! If not, then so be it! 🤱
There's no such thing as having no time for your passion project, sister! We all have the same 24 hours in a day! ⏰⏰⏰You make the time for what you love!♥️
Feeling even more blessed that I can interrupt my day to snuggle with my little guy whenever I want! Perks of maternity leave and owning your own business! I could get used to this!
Podcast: 29 and with a fine.
On this episode we cover turning 29 and then quickly getting a fine. Don’t worry no mug shots were taken but it’s interesting to see how the universe tested me one last time before earning another year around the sun. Link in bio.
Living my best life. Focused on myself. Falling in love with who I am for the first time in my life. Excited about where I’m headed and what’s next.
So many dreams. So many goals. So much ambition.
I’m learning to be spontaneous. Learning to take risks. & constantly stepping out of my comfort zone.
Right now I’m chasing the things that make me happy...the things that feed my soul.
Right now my life is filled with so much peace. So much growth. So much faith. & so much hope.
At a point where I could not care less what anyone thinks. But I do care that you feel this way too. I care that you learn to passionately pursue what sets your soul on fire. I care that you take leaps of faith and massive action. I care that you get out of debt alongside me & travel the globe with me, arms locked.
I know it’s just shampoo but y’all... it’s so much more than shampoo. Because everything I listed above? Everything about growth and loving life... that didn’t happen until a box of haircare showed up on front porch and a community of bad ass women was revealed to me.
Money is always available to me! It flows in and out of my life whenever I want it. I'm grateful for all the money in my life! 🤲🏾💰💸
Express some gratitude below if you're ready

I'm living out a dream I've had nesting in my heart since I was a little girl.
I'm humbled and easily admit that the day-to-day realities of it are nowhere close to what I ever imagined them to be, but absolutely nothing brings me more joy than those numerous little instances where time stops for a split second and my heart is struck and completely melted by the deepest love and bonding between my husband, myself, and our son... I'm instantly rejuvenated by those moments where my son and I catch each other's eyes after exerting high levels of energy together, and without any exchange of words, the silent space around us quickly becomes dense with wild vibrations of deep knowing and acceptance of the unconditional love we share between us. I get flashes of the future and overwhelmed by all the potential joys, trials, and triumphs my husband and I will live with this little guy by our side...
My son and I consciously smile at eachother, letting our souls get their fill of this pure magic that lingers for a second, and it's more than enough to carry us on through the next to-do on the list, followed by more outbursts of intense, emotional energy that unapologetically make up the majority of our life right now.
Place your hand on your heart, close your eyes and repeat:
“I AM LOVING AWARENESS.
I AM INFINITE LOVE AND GRATITUDE.”
Be very conscious of the subtle movement of the breath as you ride the wave of this mantra into your heart,
and feel it’s ripple effect,
as your aura e x p a n d s.
Keep going repeating at least 10 times 💓

I understand why people hop on planes and fly to exotic locations to escape their regular lives, routine, and culture. I’m not knocking it. But I find such a deep pleasure and contentment in the knowledge that soul shaking beauty awaits in my own back yard. It comforts me because it is readily accessible and sustainable, it leaves me grounded and grateful and more excited to be alive. If I can find myself in a place like this, surely amongst all my shortcomings I have done something right. #oregon#oregonroadstakemehome#attitudeofgratitude#nature#openroad#grateful#lost#vacation#traveloregon#highdesert
It’s ok not to be happy where you are sometimes.
But don’t let your unhappiness make you ungrateful or resentful. .
Let it empower you toward positive change. .
It’s ok to be restless, knowing there is more you are meant to do, but don’t allow it to stop you from living right NOW! .
Let that feeling spur you to action. .
Double tap if you can get on board with that 😉
