SIZE MATTERS… at least when it comes to dreams!!

When I was a kid, I always wanted to have my birthday party at McDonald’s. It was something about the playscape that I loved! Maybe it was the Hamburglar bouncy ride thing they had. It’s the thing you sit on like a horse (w/handles) and it had a spring at the bottom that allows you…

Lessons From a Car Wash

So here I go once again telling all of my “dirty” little secrets. (In case you missed my last one.) Ok breathe Audra you can do it! So, I got my car washed…after like 4 months! (possibly longer but I don’t want to own up to that) My car wasn’t super duper filthy as I…

Treat Yo’Self…Don’t Cheat Yo’ Self!

This is definitely one for those Parks and Recreations fans! (Love this episode..its hilarious and real!) So once again, I am going to put my business in the street! I know you’re probably like, “What’s new?!” Well, this time it’s not just an occurrence that happened a few years ago that I can wistfully pontificate about…

Whatcha Cryin’ For?! Where Yo Faith At?!

I learned a valuable lesson from my two-year-old godson last week! Not the cutesy stuff like “Look at the innocence of this child.” or “Let me be a shining example of awesomeness for him to see.” something more like “Look at how much he cries over pancakes and crayons!” I know   some of you…

Got Pain…Use It!

Pain: :  punishment 2
a :  usu. localized physical suffering associated with bodily disorder (as a disease or an injury); also :  a basic bodily sensation induced by a noxious stimulus, received by naked nerve endings, characterized by physical discomfort (as pricking, throbbing, or aching), and typically leading to evasive action

The More You Push…the Further Away It Goes!

Now, if you are an avid reader of my blog (and I hope that you are!) then you will look at the title of this and say, “But Hey, just last week you told us to “Keep Going!” Well as hypocritical as it may sound there is a method to the madness…a delicate balance actually….

Sometimes You Just Gotta Keep Going!

I learned a valuable lesson over the weekend. I was invited to sing at an awesome and inspiring event. So I did my usual routine. I rehearsed and I rehearsed and then I relaxed for a bit. The next day I warmed up my voice and went to sound check. Things were well on their…

Ask…But Don’t Forget to RECEIVE!

The past few days I have been in a bit of a funk waiting on some things to come through music-wise. I was at a point where I really needed some answers when lo and behold I meet someone (at my J-O-B) and had a conversation (not gonna say how long it lasted as not…

Don’t Criticize Me…Unless I Need It!

I can’t lie…I saw clips from the Golden Globes and I am super happy for the winners and nominees alike. Especially those from my favorite shows and the films that I thoroughly enjoyed watching this year! I applaud you ALL!! I was (just as many of us were) moved by Meryl Streep’s speech. No, I’m…

So it’s a New Year…but how NEW are YOU?!

So, it’s a new year. It’s officially 2017! Personally, I am feeling amazing about it. It feels like a year of renewal and refreshing. Like 2016 was a bit haywire…like completely nuts and running around screaming obscenities, stripping down naked and rolling in a bail of hay naying like a horse type of haywire. We…

Motivate Yourself Daily!

 “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.” –Benjamin Franklin In my preparation for the New Year, I have discovered that many times in the past I have found myself being motivated out of lack. I remember times that I could barely pay my bills and that was my motivation to seek out…

Practice Makes…Confident!

Let’s pretend that I just called you on the phone and gushed (practically screaming like a 15- year-old who just won tickets to a Justin Beiber concert) Ok and go…”So, I went to the studio last night and it felt SO good! I recorded this song and it came out really well!!!” (pause for response)…
