"Who are we not to shine?" This theme seems to be popping up in my life lately...tugging at my sleeve for full attention. I was watching Ellen today and thought to myself how successful her show has become. She's such a wonderful person and you can tell she loves to bring joy & laughter into ppl's lives. That thought lead to the thought of talk shows in general. There are not many successful ones out there. The only 2 that stand out for me is Oprah's show and Ellen's. Why is that? I know there's probly many reasons to contribute to their success but I also think a main reason is bcos they both give something meaningful to the life of others in 2 totally different ways. maybe that's the secret. They stay true to who they are and grow and cultivate it. When I think Oprah the words that come to me are spiritual, strong, inspirational. When I think Ellen I think laughter, fun, dancing, joy and that seems to be their basic foundation to grow upon. All the other talk shows like Tyra Banks, Rachel Ray...etc seem to be so average in comparison. They seem to follow the typical kind of talk show.

So what can we do to be less average and more of who we really are? Let go of fear and instead of focusing so much on our weaknesses we should learn how to develop our strengths. In order to make a difference in other ppl's lives we need to find our unique expression in this world and to be ourselves as fully and as intensely as possible. Trust me, Im not there yet but like i always say, life is a journey not a destination. The first step is awareness


  1. I agree... Oprah and Ellen is inspiration. Oprah has gone through so much and touched the lives of so many people with her charity and donations, and Ellen the same except I think her sense of humor is what makes her shine the most.

    Tyra is garbage! Rachael Ray is okay but you're right, just the average talk show.

  2. Hi sweetheart.

    This is so funny, I met you @ Canvas with Pi when you came down to Van to visit for your costume designing! We went to eat at Tsui Hangs after... but I'm not sure if you remember much.. if you know what I mean ;) I've dropped by your page a few times! Nice update BTW. Love the shoes! How are the Halloween costumes coming along? Do you have any creative ideas for me? Haha I'm stumped!
