“Don’t Tell Me What I Can’t Do”

Have you ever gotten the feeling that people tell you “no” for things  you believe 100% that you are capable of? If you have, you understand how frustrating it may be. I always say to myself “Don’t Tell Me What I Can’t Do”. It helps me to move past the negativity and continue on my dreams and new ideas.  After all, no one has the right to put an end to other’s ideas and dreams.

This saying always reminds me of one of my favorite characters from LOST, John Locke. Throughout the series, we learn that throughout his entire life, he was faced with people telling him no. We watched as he grew angry and frustrated. However, in the end, his true colors shined through and John turned out to be one of the most intelligent, caring, whole-hearted individuals on the island. He is admirable and every time I am faced with negativity and people who try to tell me no, I think of him.  We are all capable of everything we set our minds to.

So I encourage you to: Keep focused. Keep positive. Keep working hard. NEVER give up. The results will be encouraging. Anything and Everything is possible.

Here is a short clip of John telling off those who try to shut him down. 🙂


Hello Chicago! Wonderful to see you again!

Hello Chicago! Wonderful to see you again!

Here is a link for the blog I wrote for the Auditorium Theatre. Within it, I talk about returning to the stage that I have called home for the last couple years of my life. I am back in Chicago and this time performing with Ballet West. It has made me nostalgic to be in a place where I made so many memories. I am really looking forward to having another career milestone on that stage. Opening night of Sleeping Beauty is tomorrow! 🙂
