A Little Weekend Inspiration

This week deserves a little positivity at the end of a crazy ride...

"Dont let anything stop you. There will be times when you'll be disappointed, but you can't stop. Make yourself the very best that you can make of what your are. The very best".

A good friend and I discussed the idea of a negative thought the other day and it got me really interested in it's effects. It is easy to let the negative situations around us define us. Not only does a negative situation or thought effect us in one specific aspect of our daily lives, but suddenly it creeps into all the rest. How easily a smile is turned into a scowl, and good morning turned into a bad afternoon when we let those sneaky negatives control us. Everyday won't be perfect, and everyday won't be filled with sunshine and singing birds, but I believe I have the power as well as the choice to make it the best that I can. To make myself the best that I can. Now if anyone needs to take this little inspiration to thought, it's me:) I've failed at keeping those negatives out this week, but I thought id share my little lesson learned!

I think i may be the luckiest girl alive...
I spent 4 weeks with the most inspiring people...
Reminding me what i love to do, and where my passions will take me...

"There are short-cuts to happiness, and dancing is one of them. " ~Vicki Baum

I Couldn't have done it without this beautiful girl. Haylee gave me a place to stay, many late night fro-yo runs, and a shoulder to lean on!
These lovely ladies were stunning... I learned so much from each of them and they took such good care of me! Even when i was throwing up, they came prepared with saltines and gatorade to make me feel better!
I was so blessed and honored to be apart of the soulescape family!

So Many Good Things!

There is so many fantastic places to eat out here in LA! Im going to be very sad to leave these delicious places that ive grown to love! The one thing that i have appreciated about food choices in LA is that many places are Vegan and all Organic! Many of you that know me, know that I'm slightly obsessed with eating organically. Its Heaven!
We ate at a darling cafe in Silver Lake called Flore. Everything was Vegan, organic, and gluten free! Nat, Hay, and I ordered a pizza, burrito, and a chickpea-quinioa burger. We couldn't decide what we wanted so we split all three...
...and we ate all of it!! Inhaled it actually! So Tasty and im inspired to eat so much better now. I considering going Vegan...hmmm we'll see:)

We weren't finished with our food adventures for the day and discovered a cute place called Baby Cakes bakery. Guess what?! Gluten free and Vegan! Woot Woot! I order a cookie sandwich which consisted of two chocolate chip (Vegan and gluten free) cookies with vanilla frosting in the middle! Again i think i inhaled it instead of actually chewing it. Utah needs to get with the times and start providing this type of stuff!

Needless to say, we were all a little full, bloated, and sick but i think it was worth it...Did I tell you I'm a little inspired to change the way i eat? Im going to do it! Who knew a little LA would do me so much good!
Now this girl has been my "roomie" for the past month. Quite a saint for letting me crash at her place:) I cant tell you how incredible its been to be apart of my best friends life and experience her world! I dont know how we'll cope with out our late night fro-yo runs and yogi tea in the morning.. I may just have to move here:) I can always dream right?
This is the reason ive been so blessed to be in LA for the past month. Ive had the incredible opportunity to work with Justin Giles and the talented dancers on the SoulEscape dance company. These people are like none others:) #1 the talent is ridiculous, #2 they've taken care of me as I'm a stranger out here, and #3 the most positive, and hilarious people ive ever worked with! Rehearsals are coming along great and the show is coming up! The show is Monday August 9th, at 8 p.m at the El Portal theatre in North Hollywood. Cant wait to get on stage!
