My god, it’s been forever since I’ve updated this website. Yowzers. I spend the majority of my social media time on Twitter, second Facebook. I am BARELY on Facebook so that should tell you where I am most of the time. So if you aren’t already following me, here’s my Twitter link –> @LisaMurray
About 2 weeks ago, I started juicing fruit & vegetables. I have always loved juicing but I haven’t ever done it with this level of concentration and attention before. As I’m working on my dream, I have realized I have some really horrible habits to deal with my stress. Because I deal with such high stress situations, I need MORE stress relievers, not less. I also have stopped being physical. It’s like I shut down when I moved and I just focused on research, writing, and working and my health has taken a back seat. Well, no more. I started juicing and I have to tell you, I feel SOOOO much better in just 2 weeks. All of the little aches and pains have almost completely gone away. I feel a general sense of “well being” too that just feels amazing. I HIGHLY recommend juicing to any and everyone. I haven’t really changed anything else – just added juice to my diet – so don’t stress about it, don’t worry about it being perfect, just add 1-2 freshly juiced juice to your diet each day and let me know how you feel after a couple of weeks. My goal is to juice 100% organic fruits & veggies but sometimes that is not possible. Like earlier this evening, I went to get some veggies and I found everything in the organic section except celery… they were out of celery so I had to go over to the regular produce side to pick that up. I think there’s a scale somewhere that tells you which fruit and which veggie have the highest level of pesticides so if the produce you need is on the low end of the scale, or not at all, then maybe that’s where you can save money. But truthfully, I’m trying to support organic growers. These pesticides are ridiculous and I don’t want to support that bs.
I’ll try to update here more. I seem to post everything on Twitter (links, pics, rants & quotes) so follow me there and say hello! Let me know you’re coming from my website! Hope you’re great and you’re living or pursuing your dreams!
Pretty amazing day the studio with Sophia Grace Brownlee (@PrincessSGB on Twitter). She has such a natural love of music and is filled with so much joy and happiness, it was a pleasure to spend time with her in the studio when she was in Los Angeles with her parents and her cousin, Rosie @PrincessRGM, to film yet another appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show!!
Sophia Grace and her cousin, Rosie, interviewed stars on the red carpet at the AMAs (American Music Awards) for The Ellen Show! So be sure to watch The Ellen Show on Monday (today) to see their segment. Looks like they met a lot of great stars!! Can’t wait to hear what those 2 clever little girls asked them! haha
In this video, Sophia Grace sings “Moment For Life” by Nicki Minaj! Enjoy and follow her and her cousin on Twitter!!
I took this picture at last night’s screening of Butterflies of the film’s director Ester Brym and YouTube hottie Olga Kay as part of the Arclight Documentary Film Festival — at Arclight Cinemas Hollywood.
I went to an incredible show last week, Stacy Barthe (w/Luke James) at The Roxy. I took a bunch of pics and video. I’ll be uploading the video soon! :-) You have to check her out if you haven’t already. Her EP “Sincerely, Stacy Barthe” is free to download!
Since I haven’t gone live on BlogTV or made any videos lately, I feel like I never see you anymore!! How are you!? I just got over 3″ cut off my hair but it’s still long AF! Crazy Cher phase! Hope you’re well!! <3 u!
As many of you know, I have been devastated by the loss of one of my favorite YouTubers, Will Norton. (aka “Willdabeast”) If you don’t follow me on Twitter and you don’t know… Will was on his way home from high school graduation and he lost his live in the tornado in Joplin, MO. I can’t get into my personal thoughts on him yet but I do plan on making a video as soon as I am able. Until then, I strongly recommend you watch this video that Will’s sister, Sarah, made about the tornado and of losing Will. I was always in awe of how positive and incredible Will was, and now that I’ve seen his sister’s video, I know where he got it from. His entire family is positive and faithful.
(It’s long but watch the entire thing, it’s amazing to see the footage of the neighborhoods after the tornado.) To join the community for more family updates, like this page –> Facebook.com/FindWillNorton
I asked you in my last video(s) to submit your video of what you think of when you hear the word “Dream” AND what is your dream. The first 10 video responses I receive will be posted on my websites. Below are the first 5 videos I received.
I was SO inspired watching the videos below. I LOVE LOVE LOVE hearing from YOU guys. I just love what each person said below. It is so validating to listen to people talk about the importance of being happy…. especially since I grew up in a house where depression ruled the day. I need constant reminders that I am not alone in my pursuit of happiness and I’m not alone in my struggle with that pursuit. I hope you are as inspired as I was when I watched these videos. If you enjoy the videos below, be sure to let them know by leaving a comment and/or subbing to their channels. Actions speak louder than words you know?
Thank you to Andy, Tara, Mack, Martin, Mike and …. YOU?? SUBMIT YOUR VIDEO!! I’d love to hear from you!
I launched production on my new documentary, TopLiners, this month! I can’t reveal too much about it yet but I can tell you it involves the music industry. Sign up for the website feed, follow the project on Twitter and “like” the Facebook page! Thanks for your continued support!
Happy Martin Luther King Jr. Day!! 5 years ago TODAY I started filming my documentary, “I Have Dreams Dammit!” a film about the realities of the pursuit of dreams. Do you have a dream? Do you hate the word “dream”? The idea of living our dreams, to me, is really about what’s in your heart, right now. What do you want to do with your life? It’s not about what SOUNDS cool, or what OTHERS think is a cool thing. It’s about what YOU want, what’s in YOUR heart, no matter how “simple” (or complex) it is!! It doesn’t have to be career-oriented. It doesn’t have to involve others. It doesn’t have to be life-long. It’s just about what’s in YOU. Give YOURSELF the FREEDOM to live whatever that is!!
SHORT VERSION of this CALL FOR VIDEO RESPONSES: “What does the word DREAM mean to you?”
My good friend Martin (Princeword) in Sweden and fellow Documentary filmmaker asked me to come out of my blogging hiatus and contribute to his Advent Project and I couldn’t say no to him. Subscribe to his YouTube Channel!! He always makes such high-quality videos. Love him!
