Here’s What To Do When A Setback Smacks You

DEALING WITH A SETBACK?

It’s true: They suck.

The crappy part of life WILL happen, to everyone. Stop, and take whatever time you need to recognize and embrace all the crappy feels that go with it.

But there’s Hope! Because when you’re ready, a time WILL come when you wake up, and decide you want to keep moving forward.

Don’t force it, it WILL come. When that time arrives, don’t let your circumstances determine your decisions… let your DECISIONS determine your circumstances.
Your future can be whatever you choose to make it. Because what happens in the trenches that determines how you get to the mountaintop.

You got this!

All Smiles At Toronto Dora Mavor Moore Awards

All smiles at the Dora Mavor Moore Awards! What’s the Doras you ask?

Just like the Tony Awards, or the Academy Awards, Toronto has an awards event run by TAPA. The Doras recognize theatre, opera, and dance professionals on and off the stage.If you didn’t know, the secret is out… I’m a Juror for this past season. What do I do? Just like members of The Academy Awards watch all the films, I personally attend all the registered shows, provide feedback, and go through a voting process, which determines whether or not your show gets nominated for a Dora Award. It’s a time consuming job… but hey, someone’s gotta do it!It was my pleasure serving such an incredibly gifted community. Congratulations to EVERY show nominated! Keep making art. You are beautiful. You deserve the applause. I can’t wait to see what you come up with next. 🎭#doras2019 👊🏾- Shawn Byfield

Thank You For Flying!

Thank You!

THANK YOU to all the schools, organizations, and events that have me fly across the country to do what I do. Thank you for supporting my mission to encourage, inspire, and make a difference in people’s lives, young and old. I am truly grateful to experience the joys (and even the turbulence) of travel.

Thank you for flying with me! You fuel my attitude of gratitude daily. (And of course, I’m on a bird as I write this. That’s the view from my window)

How can I help YOU soar to new heights? I have dates available this summer (only a few left). Let me know where I’m flying to next!
