|SECOND STAR ENTERTAINMEMT|
Today i finally was able to see Cinderella in the theaters, as most of you know i have been crazy busy with back to back productions, on top of running this company, and i spent my first production free week sick with a cold, so cinderella has had to wait. But let me tell you it was worth the wait. Every moment, every nuance, every detail was perfect. i would not have changed a thing, i was just so in love with their vision, and the message of the film. through out the film it is repeated " Have courage, and be kind." and what a beautiful message that is. Fairy tales were created as a way for people to reflect on their life, and learn valuable lessons, and Cinderella definitely has many lessons to teach us. To me the most important is kindness and love cost nothing and should be given freely. Through out the film Ella teaches us to be kind and generous and thoughtful even in situations that are hard because if you have a good heart someone will see it, and eventually your kindness and generosity will be rewarded. She also teaches us to never give up, and always be true to yourself even when it seems like there is no hope, if you follow your heart you will find hope. This particular message struck a cord with me, and has inspired me. It took me almost 8 years to have the courage to create this company, and put it out there into the universe that this was something i wanted to create. i had so many bumps along the way, a boyfriend who said it would never work, and would never be a worth while business, friends who thought i was being silly and wasting my money and time and energy that could be better spent focusing on something realistic, and many other doubters and nay sayers, but this year i chose to ignore all those voices, and make it happen. i have so many goals and dreams and ideas for this company and how i want it to grow. Even today during a short trip to disneyland i said to my friend, what would you do if someday i owned a park like this, and his response was nothing, because that will honestly never happen. i disagree, 8 years ago i had people tell me i could never make a living as a costume designer, 4 years ago i had people tell me i was wasting my time working in children's theatre, and now i am making a living costuming shows for high schools, children's theaters, and small professional theaters, i run my own entertainment company, i produce two concerts a year, and the possibilities are endless. There is nothing i can not do if i put my mind to it, and focus my time and energy towards a goal. please do not let others tell you who you are, and what you are capable of, you decide that. you decide what your dream is, and what your goals are and you make that happen. My promise to all of you, is that if you come to me with a dream, a goal, or a fantasy i will never tell you it is impossible because impossible things happen every day. instead i will ask you how i can help you achieve that goal, that dream, or that fantasy. i am going to continue to make my dream the best that i can, i am going to put my entire mind, body, and heart into making this company so fantastic, so one of a kind, that everyone will see what i see when they look at my dreams.
