SHOW UP EVERYDAY as your AUTHENTIC SELF. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The way you show up on social media The way you show up on audition The way you show up at home The way you show up at the gym The way you show up with family. The way you show up with the world The way you show up alone Show up as your higher, authentic self! Cause you are awesome and a total bada$$ . BEHIND THIS BRIGHT PICTURE was a women who was scared of what other people thought! So much doubt and fear talk went through my mind on a daily basis. Like do I have anything to offer, am I good ENOUGH, am I pretty enough etc. . The more time I spent on figuring out WHO I was and WHAT I stood for, the stronger I became. The moment I stopped blaming others and circumstances and took responsibility, the more powerful I became and the more I showed up everyday as ME, as authentic ME. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ITS HARD WORK, its constantly looking inward, getting up after every no, wiping you own tears, pumping yourself up everyday, feeding your confidence and starving the doubt, learning to let go of expectations of others, bc you can't fight their battles, its believing so hard on the invisible that the universe has no other choice but to make it manifest. IT AIN'T SEXY, but its the real raw... ME! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ REMEMBER: Its a lot easier for people to criticize you and judge you from afar, bc you show up and allow yourself to be seen. Remember to trust yourself, trust your journey and lean into Grace. Release those people from any expectations, they have their own battles to fight and you have your own mission to grow, meet them with compassion. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Start with self love and like I love to say: "Lead with heart and the rest will follow!" . . . . . #officialanthea#actorempowered#humanempowerment#mindsetofgreatness#bestself#selflove#creativemindset#fitmindfitbody#millionaremindset#keto#lchf#ketotransformation#inspiredaily#authenticity
As an actress, you put yourself out there to be judge on the daily. You are judged the second you walk into the room for an audition, the second the casting director receives your video submission, the moment your agent submits you to a call. Its pretty challenging and I use to have a hard time with it. When I read an audition posting I would immediately disqualify myself, before even finish reading the entire posting. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ NOT good enough NOT skinny enough NOT talented enough NOT ENOUGH ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ FACT:I use to wear dresses and heals to all the broadway auditions, bc I read somewhere that was what you're suppose to do. Miss PRIM and PROPER! One day, I had a meeting with a music producer and he said, why do you care about what people think of you, why are you wearing others expectations of what and who you're suppose to be and WHY aren't you famous yet. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I WAS LIKE.. WAIT WHAT... WTF I just meet you. BUT I needed to hear the raw truth. I lost myself, trying to become what I thought I needed to be to book a job. I lost the most beautiful thing they were looking for... ME! My own unique voice and energy that only I carry. That was a pivotal moment in my life. I was the only one holding myself back. I started to wear what I wanted to wear and showed up in the world unapologetically ANTHEA! This journey to self discovery and self awareness has been so powerful. Are you unapologetic?
When the sharpest words wanna cut me down. I'm gonna send a flood, gonna drown them out I am brave, I am bruised I am who I'm meant to be, this is me Look out 'cause here I come And I'm marching on to the beat I drum I'm not scared to be seen I make no apologies, this is me. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Since my moms passing, these words have even more strength. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Things I’ve learned: ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 💋Don’t be passive, claim what you want. 💋Don’t give af, be bold and stand naked in your truth. 💋Saying no to things that don’t serve you, and yes things that help you get closer to your vision. 💋Being unapologetic about your pursuit. 💋Making a plan and playing it out. 💋Have the utmost faith and belief. 💋Attain knowledge but follow it by taking action. Messy, imperfect,constant action, to gain confidence and momentum. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ There is only 24 hours in a day, we can’t create more time. Be bold, take risk and make progress. I’ve been teased and laughed at, bullied and shamed. I lost myself in trying to make people love me. But this is the real me, unapologetically extra, actress singer and human empowerment ambassador. Don’t let other people limit you, march on my friend! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Remember Gods got your back, what more can you ask for.
As a recovering people pleaser, I had to teach myself not to not care what people thought about me for having a dream or how I choose to show up in this world. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ For years I just wanted to be loved, recognized and heard. That I started to lose myself and was drained. I kept giving all of energy trying to make other people happy. Showing up for everybody else and failed to show up and speak up for myself. Afraid that I will no longer be loved or be made fun of. It left me unhappy, worn down, depressed and resentful. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The heartbreaking truth is we are so busy seeking validation from outside sources. We fail to look within and embrace our true power! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ❤️You are capable ❤️You are worth it ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Create your own opportunities, make your own path. Don’t wait for other people to choose you, choose yourself.
Heres the honest truth ya'll. So much of my industry is pretty pictures, life on set, positive quotes and fabulous get togethers. Sometimes all of that is just "show" and "face" the sad part and the reality is when you meet those people in person, they are lonely, depressed, insecure and craving for real connection. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ SO... You can eat the kale Drink the alkaline water Eat all the organic food Take the supplements Do all the meditation and HIIT workouts But lawd, if you DO NOT deal with all the CRAP going on in your heart, mind and you don't take the time to Identify your self and let go of toxic relationships. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ YOU ARE UNHEALTHY! Don’t fake it till you make it, so he hard work, and stand naked in your truth. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Take care of the human behind the pretty picture, heal and forgive. Then allow your truth to speak through the still photographs. Allow your energy to be so intoxicating that people just want to be near you. VIBE HIGH YA'LL! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #officialanthea#actressempowered#standnakedinyourtruth#beyourownguru#selflove#healanddeal#millionairemindset#mindsetofgreatness#commercialactress#producer#filipinaactresss#empoweryourself#selfawareness#pinay#ketoweightloss
