Spring fever is in the air. Consider having a surprise fling with a sweetheart or with yourself, reveling in what tickles your fancy, e.g. traveling, tennis, hiking, boating, gardening, painting, swimming, or skydiving.
This is the season to venture outside and partake in the glory. It’s time to emerge from hibernation, explore and welcome the gorgeous nature of our planet. Leave your cocoon behind and allow your wings to transport you to unimaginable places and postures.
You can achieve this marvel both externally and internally. Make a list of your ten finest personality traits, tape them to your bathroom mirror, record them and listen while you’re driving. Start each sentence with “I am a great ______” (parent); “I have great ______” (hair).
These affirmations will assist you in attracting your heart’s desire, e.g. a lover, spouse, new career, home, coveted promotion, hobby, friendship, reconciliation, etc. Nothing is beyond your sphere of magnetism when you exude value, dignity, and grandeur.
Become your biggest fan by boldly and bravely acknowledging your joie de vivre and passion. Celebrate your unique exquisiteness. You are a shining star and everyone wants to be part of your light.
Remember that some people come into your life for a reason, a season, or a lifetime. Accept each association for its significance, even if for a shorter period than you covet. Be grateful for those you encounter and bless them for their input, albeit a fleeting instant of bliss.
You are the sum of all who have crossed your path. It’s important to treat each person as special and notable. Loving yourself first goes a long way in honoring others.
When you leave this earth, it won’t matter how much money you have in your bank account. What’s vital is how you behave towards and regard your cohorts and confidantes.
Check your attitude and actions at the door. Try to avoid judgments and criticism. Practice unconditional admiration and appreciation.
Accentuate the positive and attempt to empathize with defects, realizing even a perfect diamond has its flaws. Embrace limitations and find compassion for vulnerabilities. Look for the silver lining.
Strive to let go of old messages that you’re not loveable or capable. Replace your negative, dark, black and white script with one in Technicolor that illuminates your radiance.
Rid your mind of resentments that have been festering for eons. Whom have you given power to by drinking the poison and waiting for them to die? Whom do you permit to occupy unlimited space in your psyche?
Act as if you forgive your worst enemy. Pray that the same miracles and dreams you wish for yourself materialize for them. Even when you don’t mean it, continue to express the notion and you’ll sense a sunnier disposition to match the warmer days and shorter nights.
Searching for a spectacular feel-good evening, hanging with friends and family? Seeking an ideal date night affair? Then don’t miss “For the Record, The Marshalls,” at Rockwell Table & Stage in Los Feliz.
This incredible production features outstanding triple threats who sing, dance, and act in endearing moments from Garry and Penny Marshall’s repertoire of cherished films, such as Pretty Woman, Big, Runaway Bride, Beaches, League of Their Own, The Preacher’s Wife.
With live entertainment by awesome artists, this sparkling show is guaranteed to lift your spirits and rejuvenate your soul.
The playlist of treasured tunes, e.g. Oh, Pretty Woman, I Feel the Earth Move, The Wind Beneath My Wings, Girls Just Wanna Have Fun, I Believe in You and Me, This Used To Be My Playground, will have you cheering, laughing, and singing along.
You won’t be able to refrain from movin’ and groovin’ to the beat thanks to the brilliant band members: pianist Christopher Lloyd Bratten (also producer, creator, concert adaptor, musical director, and all around genius), bassist Joel Gottschalk, guitarist Nick Perez, and drummer Kiel Feher.
Every seat in the house has a wonderful view as the talent performs on stage, in the aisles, and within inches from your table. You can practically touch them. You’ll feel like part of the ensemble as you rock out in your chair, glowing and smiling from ear to ear.
Each week, a surprise guest vocalist joins in, augmenting the already phenomenal skill of the company. A highlight is the soft shoe dance routine to Heart & Soul/Chopsticks on a wooden platform with a piano keyboard replicated. You have to see this to believe it. Absolutely Mind Blowing!!
You’ll definitely forget your troubles and woes while engrossed in excellence from the first note to the last. Prepare to be transported figuratively and literally to worlds of days gone by. “For the Record” will become your happy thought, as it did mine.
Doors open at 6:30p for scrumptious fare, e.g. appetizers of amazing crab cakes, spicy tuna tacos chopped salad; main courses of prime rib of pork, butternut squash ravioli, pan sautéed sand dabs; and for dessert the must have chocolate chip cookie skillet or key lime pie.
This is truly a high end, upscale establishment with superb service and a charming, friendly staff. The enthusiastic crowd and exhilarating energy in the room alone is worth the price of admission.
You’ll be mesmerized from the opening second when the creator tells you how he started this endeavor two years ago, singing Tarantino soundtracks in the back of the Restaurant, to the finale when you’re shouting for more.
This musical series has evolved with the help of those who support live entertainment in Los Angeles. That could be you if you’re lucky enough to experience this one of a kind phenomenon. There is nothing comparable in the entire City!
