How Do You Handle Each Situation And Each Person That You Attract On Your Journey???

Hello everyone! Since this is my first blog after the release of the “My Wish” Promo, I first have to say THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU! You can’t even begin to imagine how your positive, passionate responses about the promo has made me feel….and from ALL OVER THE WORLD!!!! It just gives me even MORE energy in knowing that doing what I want to ultimately do, will hopefully indeed inspire others to get living and to go for their own dreams! So please, pass on the link to this site to as many people you know and to media because the more people that see it, the more people we can ALL help to jump start their dreams!

So, as I said originally, the important thing is not necessarily the step-by -step on what I do to achieve my dream – but rather what I am learning on the way that I can share with you guys from my perspective.

Since the release of the promo, I am getting interest from so many people about the movie who feel the time is NOW for people to see it, that I have “done enough”…going from the couch to hosting on TV each week and helping produce the  TV show as well as this documentary. People are telling me that they want to see the JOURNEY- and although the TV show is incredible, that even though it hasn’t gone “national” yet like I said on my homepage, that it doesn’t matter…and I thought a lot about that, and my conclusion is that YOU’RE RIGHT…it the JOURNEY right? And I should NOT overlook what I have done as probably a lot of people do to themselves when they feel they are not there yet….I think you need to take a look back and be proud of your accomplishments because it reinforces the things you are capable of and what you can create! So we are deciding since so many people are feeling that in these “times” , NOW is the time people need to see this movie, we are deciding that we are going to look for the rest of the funding for the film and finsih it up so it can be released!!! Our whole production team is so excited to get “My Wish” out there!

Actually, right before I went on set to do the above TV interview, it hit me that what I was about to do in a few minutes meant I reached one of my goals!!….which has become to combine the public platform you get with working in this business (which at this point for me is hosting…and I believe  ultimately, it will incorporate producing and acting in major mainstream films that will have a positive impact on the audience) with reaching out to the public in inspiring them to go for their own dreams! So I  recorded myself on my little hand help camera explaining how…”this is it! I got onto TV and have a weekly job hosting, and now I get to be interviewed on TV and share my thoughts on this journey hoping it will inspire someone, somewhere….I DID IT!!!! It’s on a small local scale and now it’s just a matter of expanding what I did in a bigger way to reach more people!!! But I HAD to take that step back and acknowledge what I have accomplished because when you do that, it gives you the opportunity to get in a state of GRATITUDE! It gives you the opportunity to say THANK YOU to God/ the universe for lining it all up! It validates to me that this belief system and the inspired actions I am taking are working!!

So  it’s at this point I sit back and do an emotional and mental check to what it is that I am learning…how did I get here so far??…and for thisbusiness, how am I moving so fast??? What I’m thinking is that one crucial pattern has been the attitude I approach EVERY SITUATION and EVERY PERSON with that I have met on this journey in the last year and a half. No person is EVER beneath me and no person is EVER above me. Every time I met someone or was introduced to someone, I first looked at them as a spirit on their own journey just as I am on mine…and I asked myself- how can I help THEM! Not “What can I GET??” I decided to always be open with my words and my heart- just be myself….there is no other “me” out there, just as there isn’t any other “you”…so I promised myself to express the idea of “what you see is what you get”…I’m not someone putting on a facade…I choose to express myself from a perspective of giving, love and contributing…and that’s just how I’m going to roll! And in doing that, as I have encountered some great people and have made some great relationships….was I in their face with “what can you give me!! What can you give me!!! ….NO! I am sharing what I am doing and if they want to be part of it that is GREAT and if not, that’s OK too…I’m happy to just have connected with them, and if I can help them out on their journey, I’ll be happy to do that! Giving WITHOUT expecting is a great feeling…I know God has things lined up because He knows my intentions- I’m not going to put the expectations of what I want to achieve on others

And the other thing I am noticing that I think is helping me to arrive at my dream so fast is how I view all opportunities…if a role or a job comes up, that most people would say is “nothing”,I don’t say to myself- “Oh this is just a stepping stone, I’ll take from it what I can, it’s so small, means nothing, no big deal” I say to myself YES!!! This is great!!! Thank you for the opportunity!!!! I’ll give it 200% !!! What else can I do to help and contribute here!!! And I do that EVERY TIME! NO MATTER WHAT!! For example, the TV interview I did was on a cable access channel…not on Oprah :)…..but SO WHAT!!! I was like an excited kid!!!    I was like “WOW!!!!!   This is so GREAT!!!! I’m in a studio doing my first TV interview!!!! And although what I have to say may not reach millions, by being on here, it might reach 1 or 10 or 100….and if I can help someones perspective on manifesting their own dream by doing this interview…..well that is the BEST!!!!!”As I look back , I think that the energy created that way is just making more and more opportunities come to me…there is no resistance, just appreciation…and when there is no resistance, more will flow to you in creating your ultimate vision! 

So…take a look at your life this week…how can you treat EVERY SINGLE person you encounter in a better more grateful way??? I’m talking about from the person who might get your coffee, to a child, to a friend, to your boss, to your employees, to someone who tries to sell you something, from people you have a “business” meeting with, to a new acquatience you met at a networking event….are they too “small” for you or are they too “big” for you….or are they just LIKE you??? I encourage you to find that they are “just like you”…also on their own journey, trying to figure everything out too- just like WE are!!  And I encourage you to give every “task” 200%…take pride in what you are doing…there is no such thing as a “small role” or as a “small job”….What I am learning is……how you go about approaching EVERYONE and ANYTHING…… is EVERYTHING :)

Much love!

Appreciating Where You Are and Being Excited About What’s Coming Up!

Donna on teh set of IndiMusic TV

Donna on the set of IndiMusic TV

Hey Everybody! Long time no write! lol I guess I’ve been busy doing all the things I talk about in this blog!! :) So…update…after the last season of IndiMusic TV, and giving it all I had both in front of the camera and behind…I was asked to come on as associate producer! My first producer credit for television! Something totally new, and something I never did before…but here I am doing it!!! I’m using all my…. I guess you can say “life skills” from all my other prior personal and professional experiences and putting it all together…I LOVE IT!…..Didn’t I say I want to produce?? Did I go to “producer school?”…NO…but have I been excited about the idea and know it was going to come like a little kid…but not knowing were or when …YES! As I was putting ideas on the table before this season, I said to myself…”OK..I never though I would enter this industry through being a host..but here it is..it has been offered to me…and I am gratefully taking it…excited about it AND putting in 200% of hard, fun, challenging work and 200% of positive attitude which I DECIDE to bring to the set and to meetings as a leader as well as part of a team. Nothing is a problem and everything can be fixed one way or another…

I cast for new VJs…an amazing experience..being on the other side…makes it so much easier when I am the one going on an audition..it has been a real LEARNING experience…and as I was finding people to call in and doing casting sessions..all I could say to God, the universe, is “thank you and this must be part of the overall plan in helping me out down the line!” I also took on the responsibility of heading up the new “Around the World” Segment of the show…(with the help of Terri…a writer that has been working with me on the “More to Mommy Script” who has expanded her abilities in helping out on this show for me:) I said to my self “Around the GLOBE????” you mean I have to find people to work with ALL AROUND THE WORLD in major cities???!!! I’M IN!!! Didn’t I say I wanted to try and create a positive impact in the WORLD??? hummmm…..:) Now for the show’s purpose, these people I found in major international cities are ones that are excited about bringing independent music to the states…helping people go for their dreams….isn’t that along the lines of what I want to do??? And who KNOWS where this will lead to!!! Then I found new writers for the show!! How did I find all of these people and especially the ones in international cities?? How do I go about bringing stuff like this together if I have no major “experience yet in the field?”…Craigslist…and looking up bloogers in different countries on the computer…and going back through all my friends in the industry that I have made this past year…and that’s basically it…not a big deal! AND I truly believe having a fun, let’s make it happen attitude along with being excited about what I was attempting to put together and the newness of it all…let that open energy flow and brought the right people and situations to me.

And I ACKNOWLEDGE what happens..I don’t call it a “coincidence” but a manifestation of my thoughts, energy and effort that I put out there……and I live each day feeling overwhelmingly GRATEFUL…which makes me want to give back even more!……and then…. I get a call for a television interview about my projects and the message I want to send about the people out there I care about…everyone who wants to feel more fulfilled, but believe its not possible….well it IS!

Take ownership of the life YOU are creating! Once you do that, you will realize that YOU own the pen in scripting your colorful journey through life! Is this YOUR life or someone else’s??? Are you doing the best you can with what is in front of you? Are you taking the experiences you are in the middle as a gift? A lesson? A taste of what is to come? What’s GREAT about where you are right now…and what’s great about what is coming to you? There are so many things for you lined up outside your door…let them in…let them in by being grateful for what you already have and where you already are…you’re exactly where you are supposed to be in your life right now…if you’re in a place you want to change…be grateful for the gift of clarity…because when you clean up your energy, your thoughts and open your heart to life…..well…..everything you ever wanted is out there waiting for you…:)

Sending you LOTS of love!

Make it Happen! Nothing is impossible !

December 29th, 2008

Make it happen! Nothing is impossible!
(Before reading this, and after if you want :) please click the above blue link “Make it happen! Nothing is Impossible!”- it’s a short video clip with a lot of meaning as you read on!Actually, play it a few times if you would…:)
Wow!!!! Hi everybody!!!! As I look back on this year and on this documentary I decided to produce, I can’t help but to think that this journey is blowing my mind!!! As I just editied (a new skill I am picking up because I am focused in getting things done immediately! :) and posted this short clip from IndiMusic TV- I have to share what a surreal experience this was! The producers of IndiMusic TV have been great this season and have encouraged me to improv and add lines to the script as long as it is in context with what we are doing—well it was like a bell went off in my head– I thought to myself-this show is currently reaching over 75,000 homes each week according to its tristate ratings and I have an opportunity to look DIRECTLY into the camera and say something that can possibly INSPIRE people as I’m doing the show–I am TOTALLY going to do that!! On the season finale show, there was an opportunity for me to add the line “NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLE!” A chill literally went through my body as I said it into the camera and it was like this whole year went in slow motion in my head. I set out to do this movie so I can share the FACT that you could go from TOTALLY starting out fresh, not knowing anyone, not having done it before and pursue that goal, that dream, that life that you want!….My purpose in this industry is to “Inspire and send energy through the media by producing and acting in outstanding TV, film and Web-projects, that will get the mainstream masses excited about their journey and expose them to the possiblities in creating the most amazing, fulfilling life they can imagine!”…..and here I am , just MONTHS later, bascially having the opportunity to do that! Here I am, standing in front of a camera, reaching thousands of homes saying the MOST IMPORTANT thing that I want people to hear! “Nothing is impossible!” …..as in SEE!!!! I WANTED this! I knew WHY I wanted this! I constantly held this vision in my head this year….constantly took inspired action and it is all culminating in this EXACT moment!!….with the FACT that I am in front of this camera saying that “NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLE! ”

I can’t even express to you in this blog how GRATEFUL I am for my journey this year- I have met ONLY the best, down to earth, open, positive people in this business- you know why?… Because that’s all I’m looking for!!!…I have made some really great friends whos support has meant the world to me! And my bag of incredible experiences…. that I have attracted in ways I didn’t even see coming…. have made this year so meaningful and so much fun!!! It’s been like a huge bunch of surprise gifts..one thing leading to antoher..perfectly planned out by the universe.I have COMPLETE faith and know that God is with me and guiding me in this whole life experience…And as I do what I can to live in the moment, it allows me to reflect back and SEE the EVIDENCE, that even though I may not know EXACTLY how everything will unfold to getting me to where I want to go and what I want to do, as long as I hold that vision,BELIEVE in my soul it will happen, be grateful for where I am and look and feel for clues for when I should take INSPIRED action- IT WILL HAPPEN!!! And this journey in reaching what I want to acheive is truly the BEST part of it all!!! The REAL goal is to enjoy the process, because the “process” is actually your “life”!

So before you look ahead to 2009, do yourself a favor and look BACK at 2008…what happened this year that you are grateful for? Who did you meet that you are grateful for? What did you learn? What did you do that was a little outside your comfort zone? Who did you inspire? Whos life did you possibly make better? Where did you get to go? What did you see that you never saw before? Even if you had some unwanted thoughts or experiences- as we ALL do- how did that make you more CLEAR on what it is that you DO want??? What changes did you make? And as you do this, you will see that you too- have had an amazing year! It’s all in the perspective that YOU DECIDE to take!

And as you think about what you want for 2009- try this on if you want- add to your goals to make this a FUN year by creating and being open to experinces you have never had before- promise yourself that wether you reach your “goal” or not, that you be aware of and appriciate all of the experinces and people that WILL lead you to where you want to eventually go- live in the moment and enjoy the process-I mean your life- because if you can do that- you will be surprised beyond your wildest dreams! Get excited and play full out! Come on!!! You wanted to be here!!!
LET’S DO IT!!!!!!!!!!!!

Wishing you the BEST reflection on 2008 and the BEST of it ALL for 2009- It’s all there waiting for you-all you have to do is look for it!!!

Lots of love to you!

ARE YOU “LEFT” HANDED OR “RIGHT” HANDED ???

November 16th, 2008


By: Donna Sirianni
(A short article I was asked to write for my friend Sandra’s web site at www.2bempowered.com that I wanted to share with you! )

This may seem a little “weird” to you- but trust me- just go with it:) Raise your left arm out to your left side and your right arm out to your right side and leave them there. Now, look only at your left hand. In it, place all of the things that you DON’T WANT in life. Put there what you DON’T want to happen in your relationships, in your business, in your financial situation, with your health, and with your spiritual self. Think about that for a bit.

Now “leave” your left hand and turn your head and focus to your right hand. In it, place all of the things that you DO WANT in life! Picture or feel the most fulfilling relationships you could imagine! Picture or feel your business and financial situation growing in leaps and bounds- so much so, that you are able to give back in ways you never even imagined! Picture or feel a strong, healthy, fit body that gives you all the energy you need to experience the things in this hand! Picture or feel yourself so connected with God and your inner spirit that you know- without a doubt- that you are loved and guided. Let these feelings sit with you for a while as you are looking into your right hand.

Now notice…… you just proved to yourself that you CANNOT focus on what you have in your left hand, while giving all of your thoughts and attention to your right hand. So my friend, into which hand do you choose to go through life focusing your thoughts and energy??? It is your choice………always has been :)
