STAYING INSPIRED! (A work in progress...)

Excerpt from "Staying Inspired" Blog:

My name is Paula C Snyder. I am not a medical doctor or PhD. My college Bachelor’s Degree shows a major in Psychology. (I use it on myself to stay sane). I am a vocalist, musician, songwriter, artist, and motivational speaker with fairly equal right and left brain function. I am mature (after ripening for years), and experienced (plenty of bad with some amazing goods).

What do I know about “Staying Inspired”?

Staying Inspired is how I survive whatever life throws at me, and still end up in a joyful state. I know the benefits of staying inspired because I have experienced many different things in my life by following my own unique path, (often despite the well-intended advice of others). I have tried and failed. I have tried and succeeded too. I’ve lived, and learned. I want to keep living -- and learning.

My body is wearing out. So what? I have the privilege and good fortune to be growing old! My “young” mind keeps screaming out “MORE”! It’s brainstorming, staying in constant motion. Sometimes I just want it to “shut up” and give me some peace or let me get some sleep. Usually, what I really want most is to manage my abundant creative ideas and keep them ready for action. Pose a problem? My mind goes wild with solutions. In fact, I’ve often told myself if I’d acted on less than half of them, I would have been a millionairess by now.

I am just a regular person, with good days and bad days, ups and downs, excitement and stale feelings. The difference is that I get creative with the game of life. Somehow, when I start to fade, one of those amazing brainstorms just perks me up and I am raring to go all over again. I strive to be positive and happy. When that’s not working, I fake it. To me, that is what Staying Inspired is all about.

A number of people have said to me, “You ought to write a book”. So, I started writing one late last year. I hope to have it ready to publish in 2019.

In the meantime, I will try to share some pieces of my journey here and look forward to "Staying Inspired" with YOU!

The event was great!!!" (5 of 5 Star Review on GigSalad.com) ~ J C, Mebane NC

"Captivating Woman: Paula draws you in from the first word she speaks.  She invites you into her world and you immediately settle in.  There is something very familiar about what she says.  Before long, you are smiling and shaking your head in agreement or reflecting on a thought provoking comment.  She connects with her audience like each one of you is a trusted friend.  Can't wait to hear her speak again!" and "Paula is the consummate professional. Her warm, giving personality shines through immediately. She is thorough, efficient and delivers (on time) more than expected. Paula's rapport with her audience is a joy to experience."  K Parker, Apex, NC
