The Greatest Showman (2017)
Directed By Michael Gracey
The Greatest Showman is an absolute viewing pleasure, from the uplifting and inspiring music to the magnificent choreography. Hugh Jackman delivers one of my all-time favorite performances as PT Barnum; his vocal talent has been on display several times but this one is phenomenal. The story is truly a celebration of humanity, as it incorporates people from all walks of life, bringing them together and celebrating what makes them who they truly are, not what people see. Stories like this one always hit home with me, the idea of finding people that think like you and want to accomplish great things and honestly just make you not feel alone, are always my favorite.
The film is not without flaws, as someone who is slowly beginning to despise cg, always preferring real world sets over the obvious green screen. I feel like the CG felt out of place and unnecessary. Overall the film will likely remain a favorite of mine for years to come. Always remember with great risk, comes the opportunity to see what life is all about. #thegreatestshowman#hughjackman#zacefron#zendaya#michellewilliams#michaelgracey#film#cinema#review#moviereview#films#writing#filmreview#entertainment#storytelling#brilliant#dramatic#musical#uplifting#inspiration#inspiring
Introducing Melanie, #358 Wow Woman!
Do you need a new outfit at a thrifty price? Do you live in Austin and want to support an animal rescue organization? Then Austin Pets Alive thrift store is the place to go! Whatever purchase you make gives a homeless pet a new chance at life. Everyone that works there is a volunteer, including Melanie whom I met there today.
One of the managers overheard me asking Melanie what was remarkable about her. She had to chime in: "What's great about Melanie? She's a great dresser, a skilled artist and has an enormous heart for volunteering. Melanie is our SOS! When we’re in a bind, Melanie always comes through to the rescue!"
Doesn't it feel great to hear such compliments? I've written about it before, but we just don't take enough time to verbally compliment people. Melanie has had a hard week and she needed to hear that today. She needed to hear me thank her for all of the ways she gives of HERSELF.
Melanie had a good friend pass away last week. Understandably, she's been emotional, especially since that friend died an unnecessary death and also died as an Atheist. Its breaking Melanie's heart. She needed her spirits lifted, which is exactly what her manager and I did today.
Melanie is an illustrator and works from home. Volunteering at Pets Alive gives her an outlet for interaction and satisfies her need for retail therapy! She also volunteers as a reader to 1st and 3rd graders. If that'not enough, she also volunteers her time to help with her two teenage boy's activities. Melanie simply gives, gives, and gives of herself and her time.
Melanie illustrates craft stamp designs used for card making. She's illustrated and sold over 80 stamp set designs. She's also written two books about crafting and stamping. If that's not enough, she regularly updates a blog and YouTube video channel. (melanie.muenchinger.blogspot.com)
Melanie recognizes the blessing of being able to volunteer a lot and not concern herself with financial matters since her husband is a great provider. She's able to be in control over her schedule and not let her schedule control her.
Melanie is a giver and a spectacular WOW woman!

"Now that we've been home for a month I am learning to be kind to myself and try to release some of the anxiety. I try to reassure myself that I am doing all I can to help our baby thrive and I know there is nothing I could have done to prevent the abruption. I am exclusively breastfeeding on demand, and she has gained almost 3 pounds since her birth 2 months ago! I am still getting in skin to skin like I did daily in the NICU, and I love her being with me all day. I am soaking it up while on maternity leave!
I know birth trauma is something many moms struggle with, whether it be an emergency situation or a situation where their wishes are simply not respected by medical professionals. In my case, much of my guilt and some of the anxiety subsided when we left the NICU, I found my own routine with my baby, and could stop blaming myself for her early delivery. My advice would be to seek help because there's no reason to feel silly that you are having feelings in addition to, or in some cases, in replacement of the pure joy that you hear most women speak of postpartum. Birthing a baby and becoming a mother are the biggest moments in a woman's life and we deserve to feel respected and supported during that time no matter what. Be kind to yourself and know that you are doing what's best for your baby. Surround yourself with positive people, and try to find that one support person that will be there to pick you up on the really hard days. Reach out to someone who had a similar experience. Mainly, don't be afraid to talk about it. The more moms willing to open up about some of the hard feelings women can experience after having a baby, the more we normalize postpartum mood disorders and birth trauma, and the more moms receive the support and reassurance they deserve."
I've been thinking a lot lately about the labels we give ourselves (and our loved ones) and the stories we tell about and to ourselves. I've read enough brain-mind oriented books to get that labels, identity, story telling are parts of integration and connection. They are the flares we send out into the world to find our tribe and sense of belonging.
It has been my experience, though, the more we cling to these identities, the less we know who and what we truly are. The tighter we grasp these stories, the less connection we feel. They're no longer open doors, but mile high lead walls. We keep ourselves trapped in the identity of "other" rendering us incapable of authentic connection or genuine belonging.
Recently, I've felt called to experiment with my own labels and stories. I've been attempting to drop labels where I can or, at the very least, loosen my grip. Doing this gave me a much better sense of who and what I am. It really isn't something to be named, but something to be felt. When I butt against something that brings me discomfort and I hear my voice beginning to tell the same ole pity story, I pause. I've been playing around with telling a new story - a story that softens my heart and lightens my mind.
These have been insightful little experiments. I wonder what you could discover if you gave it a try.
My favorite thing about being an opera singer is when I sing my final note, and you can hear a pin drop in the audience. Then, they erupt with applause and whistles and hollers. I love making people feel something with my voice. It's why I became and opera singer in the first place. I have a big performance in town square tomorrow, so I'm practicing my piece. This one is exceptionally hard because it is Queen of The Night by Mozart. As I go through the aria, I picture that I am onstage. I picture the faces of the audience and how amazed they would be to hear me sing this difficult song. As I hold out my last note, there is complete silence. This is normal obviously, since I live by myself. As I go to pick up my music sheets, I hear one single clap coming from behind me.
This is actually a fear of mine because I practice singing home alone all the time. And have you guys ever heard Queen of The Night by Mozart ? That song is so difficult. I tried singing it once and I nearly injured myself 😪 don't try it without a vocal coach ;)
all stories are mine ❤️ #faeriecrunches
Zweifel. Wir zweifeln an so vielen Dingen: den Sinn von Mathe in der Oberstufe, grüne Wiesen an Weihnachten, 15 Grad im Sommer - am meisten aber zweifeln wir an uns selbst. Der kleinste Rückschritt oder Stillstand und schon überdenken wir unser handeln und unsere Fähigkeiten. Ist doch Blödsinn, oder? Momentan habe ich so eine Phase und hinterfrage mein Handeln und mein Tun, nur weil es nicht so läuft wie ich es mir denke. Es ist nicht einmal etwas schlimmes passiert, ich bin nur leider nicht so weit, wie ich vorgehabt habe zu sein, warum auch immer. Aber das wird sich wieder ändern, ich weiß es. Ich muss nur aufhören so streng mit mir zu sein. ❤️ Habt ihr auch ab und an solche Phasen?
