Great Reminder!!!
Our striving can push our hearts and minds so far ahead that we neglect to appreciate right now! Life is not about the destination, it's all about THE JOURNEY! And our journeys are filled with jewels and treasures that we should cherish along the way. Take some time and find joy in that today. πŸ’—

So in one of my shows, I have to fly up in the air whilst singing! What the heck!!! Ha! So to get me ready to fly, I have to do aerial conditioning and training. Lawd Baby Jesus HELP! Hahahaha! I look CRAY but it's actually fun! Here's to NEW ADVENTURES! #tryingnewthings #takingrisks #youbetnotdropme #dontletmefall #theSKYisthelimit #soar #topper #celebrity #ECO4 #mekakinglive #TheJourney #believemk

MASTER CLASS...
Mind completely blown!! Man! This has been EVERYTHING I needed right now! I'm so very glad that God opened this door. The Casting Director is open and honest and has caused us to dig deep and evaluate how we approach this process. He's pulled so much out of us! I'm re-thinking so many things right now! I have SO MUCH WORK TO DO!!! I'm already devising a plan of action!
Honestly his rawness was A LOT! But I feel like I have more of the information I need now to grow in the right direction! So now...I WORK!!! #masterclass #actorsconnection #cesarrocha #nyc #musicaltheatre #broadway #broadwaydreams #broadwaydreaming #learning #growing #stretching #haveaplan #empowered #audition #performerlife #miracle #opendoors #grateful #TheJourney #mekakinglive #believemk

ALRIGHT PRAYERS UP!!!
I'm in line this morning to audition for THIS amazing musical! Carole King is a songwriting BEAST! This musical is her story! It's full of incredible hits from the 50s and 60s. Since I'm a MOTOWN girl, this is right up my alley! So I'm going for it again today! Meeting with the Broadway Coach yesterday gave me a fresh perspective and I want to show the casting directors a different and more FOCUSED audition! Praying that God goes before me and that everything goes well. I want to NAIL this one yall! Please pray! Your prayers lift me up higher than you know! It's BEAUTIFUL! Hehehehe! πŸ˜‰ #beautiful #beautifulthemusical #caroleking #songwriter #history #hits #audition #motown #intheroomwhereithappens #notthrowingawaymyshot #nyc #broadway #broadwaydreams #broadwaydreaming #iamhere #TheJourney #mekakinglive #believemk

Ok so the guy on the left looks super mean right? Ha! But he isn't. He actually has a heart of gold. I'm so grateful for the people who have and continue to come alongside me on this journey to my dreams. When I get to the place I'm striving for, I will NEVER forget those who sowed into me, supported me and believed in the dream just as much and sometimes even more than me! So...I am going out for a role in exactly 2 weeks. The character has to be slim. I've put on a bit of weight (because I fluctuate like the wind 😩). So he is going to help me help me try to drop 15 pounds in 14 days. 😳 I have never lost weight that fast. And I already know he's going to kill me in the gym. If I don't seem very pleasant over the next 2 weeks, please know that it's because I want a cookie! Ha! But I want to live my dreams more than what I'm about to give up! Come on somebody! The pic on the right is what I looked like yesterday. I need to be even slimmer in a gown in 14 days! I'm going to need you guys to help motivate and encourage me and cheer me on! And if you wanna join me, let's do it together! I'm ready! I think! Haaaaa! 😁😁😁 β€’

Today I will CELEBRATE! Every success. Every failure. Every victory. Every loss. Every triumph. Every defeat. Every mountaintop. Every valley. Because God has used every single one of those things over the last (ahem) years to make me who I am today! Hahaha! I am so grateful for every lesson I've learned. All the things that life has taught me. Every experience (both good and bad) that I have been so blessed to have. My life is far from perfect. I am far from perfect. I'm not nearly where or who I want to be. But I know that God has so lovingly and graciously ordered every one of my steps. He has walked with me and unfolded such an incredible journey. I don't take that for granted. Tomorrow is not promised. But He saw fit to let me see this one today! πŸ’—πŸ™Œ
As I turn the page into this new chapter of life, I declare that this will be a year of MANIFESTATION! That I will SEE the things that I have been believing for. I pray for all of the impossibilities in my life to come crashing down like mountains into the sea! I pray that it will leave me, and those around me, in such awe of the power and glory of my AMAZING God! I pray that it will cause those who don't know Him to glorify and give their hearts to Him. I pray that He will put me on display as a monument of His miraculous work! Yes!!! Here I am Lord...This Is The Year!!! πŸ’—πŸŽ‰πŸ’—πŸ™ŒπŸ’—

He's not forgotten you. He's not slow to fulfill His promise. His timing is completely based on how much He loves us. He knows EXACTLY what we need and what we desire. And when the time is right, the Lord is faithful to unfold it all according to His plan. He will make it happen. Just continue to stay faithful and BELIEVE! πŸ’—

Do at least ONE THING daily to get you closer to your dream! My "one thing" today...ACTING BOOKS ORDERED! My voice has gotten me in doors that my acting wasn't quite ready for. But that won't be my story for long! I'm going to STUDY the material that Broadway Actors learned from. First up..."An Actor Prepares!" Thank you @iam.reneej and Erin Rementer for the guidance! πŸ“šπŸŽ­

HAPPY BIRTHDAY DIAGON ALLEY!!! πŸŽ‰πŸŽˆπŸŽŠ
3 years ago today I opened this magical show with some incredible people in an enchanted land. It's awesome to still see the awe and wonder on the faces of guests who see Diagon Alley for the first time. It's all they dreamed of and more. And it's a place where I've had the opportunity to live my dreams playing the delectable diva Celestina Warbeck! Thank you @universalorlando! #happybirthday #diagonalley #harrypotter #wizardingworldofharrypotter #universalstudios #universalmoments #celestinawarbeck #celestinawarbeckandthebanshees #jkrowling #warnerbros #mekakinglive #believemk πŸ’—βœ¨πŸ’—πŸ’«πŸ’—

"Wait...I thought you were gone..."
Hahaha! I've been met with that surprised greeting a lot this past week. Yes, I was, but now I'm back. So...things didn't work out the way I expected. I've had to come home and "regroup." I love the meaning of that word: to reassemble after an attack or defeat. YES! Attacks may come. Defeat and failure may strike. But that doesn't stop you from reassembling. It doesn't stop you from taking a breath, regrouping and getting back in the ring. Your dream doesn't stop because one thing didn't work. Heck it doesn't stop if and when 20 things don't work. This journey to our dreams is trial and error. Sometimes some people aren't the right people, some companies aren't the right companies, some places aren't the right places to link up with what God has planned for you. And that's ok. At least you tried and found out. Now...you get to keep moving forward! You get to try again and see what's in store NEXT! So yes, that's where I am. Trying again because IT'S NOT OVER! You can #tryagain too! #imback #regroup #neverdefeated #defeatisnotanoption #stilldreaming #noexpirationdate #gonnakeepgoing #tilidie #dontstopbelieving #onemonkeydontstopnoshow #theshowmustgoon #OperationNEXT #TheJourney #mekakinglive #believemk

Ooooo...
So I'm playing with the Blues Brothers today. And I just got the CRAZIEST "compliment" ever! This man came up to me and said, "whew...you can really sing. I mean you can SANG! If your voice was Food, you would be Big As Hell!"
Me: 😳😳😳 OMG...what sir??? What the heck? Hahahaha! Lawd! Help! Do you say thank you to that? I didn't know what to say. Awkward! β€’

JOURNEY UPDATE!!!
If you've ever watched NASCAR Races, you know that sometimes during the race the drivers have to pull over for a PITSTOP. That is where they can refuel, recharge and take care of any problems before proceeding with the race and reaching the finish line. The life journey is a race that often requires the same thing. Time to develop, refuel, reset, recharge and regain strength for the next phase. I've said many times that life is not about the destination, but all about the journey. I've also learned that this journey is a process. It's a marathon and not a sprint. I am grateful for my dreams and the passion God has given me to pursue them. I'm also grateful that He has opened up a door of opportunity...a pitstop if you will...that will allow me to continue this race from a place of strength. I am excited about this next adventure and all that it will bring. I know that I will grow and learn so much. I know I will be challenged as well. And I believe that it will all work together to prepare me for everything that lies ahead. I want to encourage you today to embrace your pitstops. See the beauty in them. Take advantage of them. Go through the process and continue to run your race with strength, diligence, passion and purpose. The best is always yet to come!! I have to thank everyone for all of your love and support. It is an honor to know that you are invested in me and my future. We are in this race together. It means so much to me to have so many amazing people on my side. The journey has only just begun!
HERE WE GO...

That includes your little mind!!! Ha! How often do we talk ourselves out of our dreams? More than we probably care to admit. I know I have and still do. Not feeling qualified enough, trained enough, equipped enough, good enough... The great thing is that God holds our dreams and makes them reality. And He doesn't need a resume' to do it. All HE needs is a willing heart. So be willing to trust Him, willing to follow wherever He leads, willing to sacrifice, willing to dream as big as possible and allow Him to unfold it all according to His plan. Get your little mind out of the way and BELIEVE!
This Pep Talk is brought to you from New York City as I sit here contemplating my own journey. Hahaha! I could have talked myself out of this trip. I almost did. But I'M HERE! And He has been faithful...here with me every step of the way! You only see that kind of faithfulness when you step OUT of the boat and go for the impossible!!! Whew! Goodbye for now NYC...I will be back. Because I need a place big enough to hold these dreams! πŸ™ŒπŸ’—πŸ—½πŸŽπŸŽ­πŸŽ€πŸ’—πŸ™Œ β€’
