Live Your Film

“Live Your Film” Movement // Britany + Anita + Lindsey

by Team Film

This spring, we’re asking Team Film members to tell us how they “live their film” and give shout-outs to women they’re crazy over who are living their film, too. Anyone, everyone, can live her film.

Britany says conquering fears (water, heights, etc.) has helped her grow.

Britany Fitzwater flies mindfully…

To live your film is to have fearlessness. Fear can stop us from branching out, but if we mindfully conquer those fears, growth occurs and life blossoms. The first time I leaped out of an airplane, I ignored that voice that said “Stop!” The outcome altered my approach to many aspects of life, such as running harder when my mind said I couldn’t, going scuba diving when I had a huge fear of the water, and preparing for a mission trip when not long ago I was the one that needed direction. Live your life, live your film and share your gift(s).

Film shout-out to Angie….

One of many women I know that live their film is Angie Frazier. She is a mom, grandmother and one tough lady! She eats the road for breakfast, lunch and dinner, completing 50K’s (plus some) with a smile on her face. Not only is she a runner, but she also enhances the lives of others in her community by giving back, being involved in Back on My Feet and Girls on the Run. She is a rock star who is living her film!

 

Anita Rogers goes for it…

Living her film means she is in control of making life full of purpose, love, exciting challenges and fun!  Well said, Anita!

To me, living my film means making every moment, in the present, count. I get one chance to live my film, and I want to be the one who is in control of making it full of purpose, love, exciting challenges and fun! I want to know and be proud that I’m consistently pushing my boundaries, mentally and physically, to stay dynamic and relevant! No more regrets, second guessing, underestimating myself or sitting on the sidelines. Sitting on the sidelines is safe with no risk of failing, but it’s also very boring and no risk of succeeding either.

I live my film now by challenging myself with fun, albeit short, races. I just did a 4K (my 2nd and longest race!) in the Carmel Marathon relay. I am now signing up for the 10K with friends from the Carmel Marathon relay. I like proving to myself I can do something I convinced myself I couldn’t. I love having so much fun while doing it with friends!  I’m proud to set an example for my kids on how important and fun it is to be physically active.

Film shout-out to Leann…

Leann Faust makes every moment count, and she’s the best at making sure she includes everyone to come along for the ride. The ride is always fun, but it also has meaning. I never ran before meeting Leann, and I mean NEVER. I knew she was a serious runner, but she never made me feel less than. In fact, one day I shared with her that I’d like to run a 5K …. someday. Her immediate reaction was, “Of course, you can! You could do it right now!” So she signed the two of us up for a 5K. I’m not sure how long it would’ve taken me to get off my butt and just do it without Leann! Thanks Leann, for inspiring me to no longer sit on the sidelines but join in on the fun!

 

Lindsey Hein shines brightly…

Sharing her positive spirit, Lindsey lives her film!

Sharing her positive spirit, Lindsey lives her film!

Living my film is not living in fear and doing what I love. It is having big goals. It is trying to make sure I am positive and encouraging to those around me. I want people to feel alive when they walk away from a conversation—to feel like they also want to do something big.
Chrissy has Ironman goals in her sights. You got this!

Film shout-out to Chrissy…

Chrissy Vasquez is someone I know living their film. She is passionate, caring and inspiring. She is the Executive Director for Back on My Feet Indianapolis and pours her heart into the job and truly loves what she does. She is also on a mission to become an official Ironman Finisher—she has completed the distance but wants to complete under official time cut off. The woman doesn’t give up.

 

Stay tuned for more exciting film! (You! Yes, you.) Missed the last batch of amazing women? Read it here.
