Spring Has Sprung!

Farewell, winter. Bye-bye blah. Buzzing bees, blooming buds and greener grass have emerged. Hopefully you’re delighting in the change of seasons as much as I enjoyed voicing the spot below. Happy Spring!

True Beauty

Lisa Rice wrote this.

In a society obsessed with eye candy, Dove’s Real Beauty Sketches remind women that they’re more beautiful than they think…

…and BuzzFeed warns us to be careful what we wish for…

…but even more inspiring is Wacoal’s advertising campaign. It veers off onto the less-traveled path of appreciating inward beauty.

When time permits, treat yourself to the three wonderfully written and filmed vignettes below. Each reminds us that true beauty lies on the inside.

CAbi clothing company’s founder and president Kimberly Inskeep writes that Everyone Is a Beautiful Story, “The comparison game and perfectionism do not lead us to anything helpful. We think they are about improvement, but they’re really about approval. The truth is, those with wonderfully satisfying relationships do not seek approval, but are intentional with others purely for the sake of relationship. Intentionality is born out of a purpose to be about something bigger than ourselves. When we let go of the desire to be perfect, and connect more genuinely with others, the beautiful irony is that while we discover a truth and beauty in others, we discover it in ourselves, too. Our lives tell a bigger story of being a woman on purpose.”

Author Karen Swallow Prior penned another perspective in We Can’t All Be Beautiful, “…whatever beauty we see in ourselves or others is but a reflection of the One who is true Beauty.”

Happy Valentines Day!

Lisa Rice wrote this.

“To love at all is to be vulnerable. Love anything and your heart will be wrung and possibly broken. If you want to make sure of keeping it intact you must give it to no one, not even an animal. Wrap it carefully round with hobbies and little luxuries; avoid all entanglements. Lock it up safe in the casket or coffin of your selfishness. But in that casket, safe, dark, motionless, airless, it will change. It will not be broken; it will become unbreakable, impenetrable, irredeemable. To love is to be vulnerable.”
~ C.S. Lewis

Blogging Away

Lisa Rice wrote this.

When I decided to add a blog to my website I honestly wondered if I’d have enough to say. Fast forward eighty-eight entries and I’m still here. Initially, I sought to provide another dimension for voice seekers to see who they’re hiring. After all, each of us in voiceover brings a little of ourselves to the mic. In other words, our life experiences color the read. In fact, one entry, The Gift of You unpacks that thought.

My desire has also been to encourage readers, share techniques I’ve learned with my voiceover peers and spur others on in matters I’ve found to be important in life or close to my heart.

I, too, have been inspired and motivated in both my career and personal life from reading various blogs. If you’re not already doing so, I encourage you to visit the following sites. You’ll find some seriously compelling information. A wealth of knowledge from past, present and future posts:
