...I think it was Joyce Meyer who said that. It’s a quote that’s stuck with me over this past year. It’s easy for me to get caught up thinking about all the things I wish I could do, that I feel like I’m MEANT to do, but that just aren’t open doors right now. Don’t get me wrong, I feel hopeful, but I also feel limited. But I’m reminded that when I’ve trusted God in the past, in seasons with even more limitation, ESPECIALLY in doing the things I didn’t think really mattered all that much, I look back and see those small things now as necessary connectors and steps toward some of the biggest & most meaningful parts of my life. And it’s easy to overlook the good in all directions when you’re so focused on a specific want. But I don’t want to take any of the blessings coming to me in this season for granted. I’m hoping-nope-I’m EXPECTING that something good is going to happen every day, and some of those good things might just end up propelling me toward my destiny. I hope & pray for GOOD in all of your lives today and every day of this entire year ahead! Let’s expect it. Because there is good to be found all along the path of pursuing your purpose. Especially if we look to the One who designed it to guide us. We can do this 2019! ❤️ you guys! ⠀

P.s. Talk about good things! If you haven’t seen my latest Neverland videos on @youtube, I would love if you checked them out!🎵Probably some of the coolest projects I’ve ever gotten to do but they often fly under the radar in the beginning-don’t miss the most magical adventure & an interview with the real life Tinker Bell & Redheaded Mermaid from Disney’s Peter Pan, Margaret Kerry! These are projects & memories I’ll cherish for the rest of my life-guaranteed! Click the link in my bio for all the pixie dust! ✨💫✨⠀

Today’s very special Neverland video is up! Click the link in my bio for the full interview with Margaret Kerry, Disney’s real life Tinker Bell and the Redheaded Mermaid from Peter Pan! ✨💫⠀

We filmed this chat together at @bissellhousebedandbreakfast right after we filmed Margaret & Miley’s scenes for my new music video “Return to Neverland For Christmas!”( @thereal_miley_tinythunder makes an appearance too! ) Margaret’s reaction to working with Miley was so sweet. There were more than a few moments throughout the day the crew & I found ourselves getting choked up - especially when Margaret was telling Peter Pan stories, both on camera and off! I also couldn’t resist bringing my Tinker Bell wings for her to try on-doesn’t she look just perfect in them?!🧚🏻‍♀️(Swipe to see! 👉🏼) ⠀

I really hope you guys enjoy this video getting to know Margaret! She talks about her amazing career starting at just 4 years old growing up acting in Hollywood, working with @disney and her captivating book, “Tinker Bell Talks!” I was also thrilled to find out Margaret shares my faith too! It was such a blessing getting to collaborate with her this past Christmas, and on a project that is so meaningful to me. This is the first video on my channel this year, and it’s so full of pixie dust! Click the link in my bio or visit my @youtube channel to watch: YouTube.com/TraciJHines ✨ Only 8 days into 2019 and it’s already turning out to be a dream come true! 💫⠀

My 1st video of the year is coming out on my @youtube channel tomorrow! It’s an interview (well, really more like a chat!) with Margaret Kerry, Tinker Bell IRL! ✨💫✨ ⠀

Many of you know Margaret as Tink, but did you know she played more than one iconic Neverland character in @disney’s Peter Pan? She also voiced & reference modeled for the red headed mermaid in Mermaid Lagoon! I started reading her book #TinkerBellTalks right after we finished filming Return to #NeverlandForChristmas (I’ve been meaning to read it for ages!) and it is SO fascinating! I can’t put it down. Margaret is endlessly inspiring & I am so blessed to have met her, and to have her in my life! She was in my @disneyd23 expo vlog back in 2015, and I am so thrilled to have had the chance to collaborate with her this past Christmas for the new music video, and in this next video where she shares more of her story & book! I can’t wait for you to get to know her better in tomorrow’s vid! Until then-⠀

✨Faith, Trust & Pixie Dust!✨⠀

Sorry guys, I really love the quiet right after the holidays. This is the time I’m dreaming big & making plans. But I’m breaking my silence to remember some of 2018’s special memories. Prob won’t be able to fit it all in 1 post but starting off...
....................
1. Returning to Neverland🎵-this time with Margaret Kerry, @adam_gubman & of course @thereal_miley_tinythunder💫 It was a dream come true! ....................
2. Moving on to the memories in my best nine (that aren’t reposts from previous years, haha) -swipe👉🏼- we have the EPIC #PrincessesBreakYouTube 👑collab inspired by @disney’s @wreckitralph 2 w/ @jbunzie & all of the princesses! 🎵This was a miraculous shoot & such a highlight of my year!
....................
3. My Rapunzel bridal shoot with @dphotopro! 🌸 So thrilled I got to finally meet & collab with Danielle- she is one of the most wonderful, talented, beautiful humans & I had such a blast getting to do this with her & her hubby Ricky - my mom came on this shoot too and it was such a fun day! ......................
4. If Only!🎵Not only was this a wonderful collab shoot with such talented folks, but it was also pretty much the debut of my “new” voice post-surgery. My mom cried when I played her the track. That was enough for me. I also got to be there in the studio while @mrleozombie conquered this song & proved his voice is so much more powerful than even he knew, and also got to witness @musicbyoctavius & @mulliganjimmy do their thing with their beautiful instruments! Huge thanks to @rejill for making this video happen! ....................
5. And finally, getting to reference model as Ariel for Disney Animator, my friend @oonaraoo at Walt Disney Animation Studios. This #RalphBreaksTheInternet video collab is coming out this month, so stay tuned! Talk about a dream come true- it was such an honor getting to visit the animation room, & model as the character that inspired me to sing, act & pursue my dreams in the first place. I still can’t quite believe it happened! 🐚
Huge shoutout to @songstaforlife who made quite a few of these videos/pix happen! Tap the pic for more tags from the magic-makers! #bestnine2018

I love sharing behind the scenes stories with you guys- my #MerCrew on @patreon gets all the secrets first, but I also love pulling back the curtain a little here on IG too! Hopefully some of you like hearing about this stuff!❤️I thought I’d share about video props today! In most of my videos I sneak little props & items into the set that have special meaning for me. Sometimes they’re Easter eggs from past videos, or nods to other @disney films, like Aladdin’s lamp hidden in Ariel’s trove of human thingamabobs in the set of my Part of Your World video! ✨This sweet little teddy that Miley brought to Neverland was of course a nod to Michael’s teddy bear from the Disney film, but it goes a bit deeper than that. He came to me as a gift from my mom years ago. I used to collect teddy bears, and she would give them to me to mark special occasions, or just surprise me out of the blue if she was out and saw one she thought I might like. (I still have most of them). I love how vintage this little guy looks and I thought he would be the perfect companion to Miley’s character on her visit to Neverland. After all, her character represents me in so many ways, and as a kid I always had a teddy bear by my side-especially at bedtime (to keep the monsters away).😉 .....................
My mom is a huge reason why I have such a love and nostalgia for Peter Pan. She never discouraged me from reading fairytales, and she named me after a pixie. Peter Pan’s Flight is our favorite ride at Disneyland, and we’ve watched all iterations of Peter Pan movies together since I was really little. I’ll never forget my parents taking me and my brother to see Hook when it came out. I promptly came home, put on my blue satin nightgown and pretended I was about to fly off to Neverland myself. This little teddy represents all of that to me and more.

Having Margaret be a part of this video was such a blessing and an absolute honor! I wanted this video to have a focus on Tink, and showing how she led @thereal_miley_tinythunder all around Neverland, so having Margaret cameo was so perfect! I still tear up every time I watch it! Hers & Miley’s performances are so heartwarming, and behind the scenes was equally so! She even told Miley to call her GrandmaTink! She enchanted & amazed us from start to finish, and I can now say without a doubt that Tinker Bell is real. I DO believe in fairies! ✨🧚🏻‍♀️✨

There are a few new surprises in store in this video, most exciting perhaps is a very special cameo by Disney’s Tinker Bell herself, Margaret Kerry! (Swipe for more! 👉🏼) Margaret is the live action reference model for Tinker Bell in Disney’s Peter Pan, and she also voiced the red headed mermaid in Mermaid Lagoon! It was such an honor to have her be a part of this project! She is such an inspiration and has such a pixie-dusted life!

"Dream higher than the sky, and deeper than the ocean." 🌊Tail: @mermaidkariel 🌊
And speaking of big dreams...one of mine is about to come true!! When I was a little girl, on very special days, maybe about once per year, my parents would wake me up and tell me that we were going to @disneyland. We would scream on Star Tours, wait for hours for Peter Pan's Flight, eat burgers at Pinocchio's Village Haus, and I'd agonize over whether I felt brave enough to go on Pirates. I wore Disney Princess costumes & tried to dress my little brother up too. And at the end of the night, we would watch the fireworks, or Fantasmic, which was my favorite part. For as long as I can remember I dreamed about what it would be like to sing for a Disney show...to hear my voice across the park helping other kids believe in magic and making adults nostalgic. Call it silly, but the music in the shows always made me emotional. It was what affected me most about Disney, and I 'didn't know when or how,' but I knew I wanted to sing for Disneyland one day. And I wanted to be there in the park to experience it in person, full circle! God knew about that dream, and kept it safe for me. Fast forward to 2015, where I found myself in a Tokyo Disneyland recording session, not only singing for a Disney park, but getting a solo in the show! Little Traci inside me was jumping up & down. Since then my voice has been in Tokyo Disneyland & Tokyo Disney Sea a few times, because one of my amazingly talented producers writes for the park, and has called me in to sing. (He's the BEST!) Well this year, I got an incredible surprise to find out one of the recordings I did, thinking it was just a demo, ended up being chosen to play in Tokyo Disneyland this summer, but the big difference this time is it's not a group vocal with some solo lines. It's just me. The whole song. I'm SHOOK. And, it was one of the first things I recorded after my surgery. Right around the same time I sang "If Only" for YouTube. And I'm finally going to hear it. @benjaminhinesphoto surprised me w/a trip to TDL and I'M GOING TO JAPAN to hear the song. In a few days.

Thanks so much to everyone who watched our Little Mermaid music video on @youtube!!! 😭🙏🏼❤️IF ONLY I could give every single one of you a hug right now! Forgive me for not posting more in my story or on here since it released-I've been absolutely speechless & so overwhelmed by the response. I know I usually write BOOKS to you guys, haha, but truly, I just don't have the words to thank you all for the incredible encouragement you've sent me, and my whole team, for this project, as well as my personal journey back to my finding my voice. 🎶 I know I still have a long way to go, but I seriously wasn't prepared for the incredible welcome back you guys gave me. To my friends who texted & called, to those of you who commented everywhere, shared, liked, tweeted, subscribed & even joined the #MerCrew on @patreon ...you have given me such a gift. I feel like I have a fresh start & a brand new voice, in every sense of the word, and I just can't wait for the future & all the exciting things it holds. I want to use this voice God has given back to me to sing & speak words that matter, that incite joy & that make people feel like they can do anything. Because they can. WE can. I'm proof. From a girl battling hopelessness last year to a girl who feels like anything is possible now...take it from me. It's never too late to find healing. ❤️🙏🏼
Thanks again so much to @mrleozombie @mulliganjimmy & @musicbyoctavius for singing with me! It was such an honor and such a blast! ⠀

The anxiety is real guys. The last time I posted a music video was in December. Back when the Sea Witch (let's call her "Polyp" 😆) still had my voice. I'm so excited to share my new voice with you guys now, after all this time. (Despite my nerves!) I still can't believe I not only got thru this first recording session way back in the beginning of the year with the new healed chords, but also got to sing with these AMAZING artists! I'm so blessed to know them & to get to call them friends, let alone have the opportunity to sing & collaborate with them! I really really hope this one makes you smile. So many of you commented telling me this is your favorite song from The Little Mermaid on Broadway...so the pressure's on! Haha! A lot of love, time and hard work went into this project; I really hope it brings a tidal wave of joy to anyone who watches it! Love you guys-thanks so much for getting excited with me! 🎵🐚💦 #ifonly #ifonlymusicvideo #littlemermaid #princeeric #thelittlemermaid #littlemermaidonbroadway #youtube #leocamacho #octaviuswomack #jamescmulligan #ariel #disneymusic video cap via @throughtheblues

SO EXCITED for my upcoming #MerFit Bootcamp on August 18th with my gym @goat_fitness_gym! 🐚💪🏼💦 Click the link in my bio to sign up -spots are limited so grab your slot ASAP if you want to come out! The event is Sat. August 18th in Irvine, CA. It's a Mermaid Fitness Bootcamp created by the trainers at GOAT Fitness, including my own personal trainer, Clara! She's amazing you guys-you will LOVE her! There's a 10am and an 11am session, plus a raffle (you guys know I'll be bringing out some @adorkablenews for that! 😉) & free acaii bowls, smoothies & pre-workout samples! I'll be there for both sessions -I can't wait to work out with you guys! Clara is designing the workout with some of my favorite moves, geared towards anyone who loves mermaids, or just wants to look & FEEL great in their mermaid tail, cosplay or you know...pajamas. Jeans. Anything! 😉🙌🏼 I talked about this a little bit in my last YouTube video, but fitness has become a huge passion of mine this year. I've always enjoyed working out, and grew up as a gymnast, but after getting diagnosed w/degenerative disc disease when I was 14 my whole life changed, and I lost that athlete part of myself. Until now. I'm amazed that through weight training I've not only rediscovered that same joy I once had in the (gymnastics) gym, but found my body getting SO much stronger, including my back, and feeling SO much better overall! I went in for X-rays recently w/my doctor, and my back has improved-which is insane, b/c I was told before that it probably would never get better. Only worse. Looking great is nice, but FEELING great, and finding not just outer but inner strength is what pushes me forward. Getting serious about fitness this year has done leaps & bounds for my mental health, energy and helps manage my chronic pain, so I could not be more excited to keep going, and make this newfound hobby a focus & commitment in my life that's here to stay! When I love something, I just want to share it, so this opportunity to share my new favorite thing is something I'm really passionate about! I hope I get to share it with you, and see ya on the 18th if you're local & want to come out! All fitness levels are welcome!❤

Once Upon A Time ⠀
There was a Siren fair⠀
She had sorrowful eyes ⠀
And dried seaweed hair. ⠀
She loved to bask on the shore⠀
And explore the depths ⠀
Not once did it occur to her ⠀
To beware of nets. ⠀
.⠀
One auspicious night ⠀
Under the bright, full moon, ⠀
A lone fisherman waded ⠀
Out into the blue ⠀
His eyes beheld silver ⠀
An unearthly glow⠀
What lay beneath? He needed to know. ⠀
.⠀
He cast his net far and let it fall deep ⠀
It found its purchase ⠀
In melancholy sleep⠀
The Siren awoke in an alien world ⠀
Gasping and frightened ⠀
She cried drops of pearls ⠀
.⠀
The fisherman was transfixed ⠀
And his desire consumed⠀
Naive though he was ⠀
He had sentenced her doom ⠀
For no aid from our world ⠀
Can a Mermaid derive ⠀
And once she has come here⠀
She cannot survive. -The Catch 💧This new video is up now 💙Catch it on my @youtube at the link in my bio or in print form in the current Mermaid issue of @faeriemagazine 🐚 #AMermaidsTears #mermaidstears #mermaidmakeuptutorial #originalpoetry #fairytale #mermaidfairytale #mermaidtearsmakeup #faeriemagazine (filming by @benjaminhinesphoto - mermaid tail by @mermaidkariel)

New video coming tomorrow 🐚💧These imaginary tears I painted on my face represent the real ones I've been living with in secret for a long time. I was honored to create a mermaid look & tutorial for the current @faeriemagazine issue, and took inspiration not only from their ethereal pages, but also from my own experiences. I've been closer to my emotions over the past 2 years than was comfortable, and cried tears of sorrow, frustration, anger and joy. I don't often open up when I'm in the midst of it, but I found myself in a place last year where I felt stripped of almost everything that I loved the most. Things that I thought made me who I am. Depression and Anxiety became constant companions, despite how hard I tried to ignore them. I fell into trauma and instability, experienced both epic wins and epic losses. Then, my beloved Grandmother went to heaven this year. My first performance with my new voice post-surgery was in the midst of tears at her memorial service. I've been through a lot, but I've also been given the gift of victory over many of my struggles. These tears represent the tears of sorrow and the tears of joy I've cried over and over again. They represent healing, and the beauty that can come after pain. The most valuable lesson I learned in the midst of it all was that God was truly there. I experienced His love in a way I never had before. He is close to the broken-hearted. And I am never alone. Neither are you. In this video I share the makeup, an original poem I wrote to tell this Siren's story, and some of the things that have helped me in my journey. And I know it's far from over. It would mean so much if you took the time to watch this video tomorrow. I'll let you know when it's up. 💙 #instadiary #mermaidstears #mermaidmakeup

Creativity takes flight when you rescue & reconnect with the perpetual child that never grew up deep down inside. Don't lose your happy thought. Ever. Let it lead you out of the dark, and give it permission to fly. Don't force it into a box. Don't try to mold it into what other people tell you it should be, or what you think they want. Let it take on its own shape and unfold in its own perfect timing. Sometimes the best things take time. That's why your heart never grows old in Neverland. It can take all the time it needs, because we have forever. And when the dreams you never even knew you had come true, you can be sure they were worth the wait. ✨✨✨ #instadiary #happythoughts #neverneverland #pixiedust

The third tile in this set SHOULD be a Catwoman selfie, but since I've never cosplayed her, here's a much more terrifying makeup test I did on myself for a Suicide Squad Joker (Jared Leto) look. (Still need the green hair & grill tho). I was hired to do this makeup on a male model the client cast for the shoot I was doing, but I did a test run on myself the night before to try out the products and this is the result. Oddly enough I feel like I ended up looking more like Jared in the test pics than the model in the final video. Prob just a bone structure thing...or more likely a "I need more practice beating other people's faces" thing, haha, but could you imagine a 5'2 pixie joker skipping around trying to look menacing? I'm cracking up just imagining myself attempting the full costume. At any rate, I love a challenge so this was really fun, and probably the only time I've ever managed to crossplay & not look like a 12 year old! So I figured it might be worth another share. 😂😂😂 (first pic is me (obvi haha) once ya swipe it's all @jaredleto ✌🏼️) #joker #suicidesquad #crossplay #jokermakeup #jaredletojoker

Just pretending I'm at #SDCC right now 👻 (This is my first year missing it since 2009! The end of an era! Lol) Hope all you crazy kids down in SD are having a blast & staying safe! I'm living vicariously thru you! 👍🏻 In the meantime ima plan my next Ivy shoot b/c @jmillsmakeupandhair updated my wig & I am living for this hair. Pretty sure it's time to start growing my pixie out so I can get some bomb extensions & have this in real life. 🤓🌿💋 ⠀

I was so honored for the opportunity to partner with the creators of Final Fantasy XV: A New Empire @ffxvmobile for this video! #ad I've been getting lots of Q's lately about not just how to start cosplaying, but also how to set up & do cosplay photo shoots specifically, so this video is full of my own take on cosplay advice, tips & hacks for putting together these kinds of collaborations & making this sort of content! I really hope it helps you guys that have been asking, and inspires ya to step outta the box and try something new! I had so much fun with this one-I've always wanted to cosplay a Final Fantasy character! 💫 ⠀

Okay so I'm going a little crazy because my first music video of the year is almost here and I'm so nervous and excited to share my new voice with you guys! (Well, same voice, new healthy chords! 😆) I feel like the results of all my recovery and work this year is finally going to be out there...I have so many emotions 😅🙏🏼👻 Thanks for being so patient guys! And shoutout to my #MerCrew on @patreon for giving me the encouragement to move forward! (I shared the song with them recently and they are giving me all the strength! 🙌🏼❤️) Okay, enough gabbing for now- I'll let you guys know when I have the official release date! ⠀

Btw this fun pic is a throwback from #D23Expo last year when @lifeofshel convinced me I needed to cosplay Ariel as Ursula. (With her epic #DisneyInDisguise group!) She was so right. 😉 (also HOW has it been almost a year already?!) Photo by @fatmanphotography & costuming by @castlecorsetry.

Don't wait for someone else's permission to follow your dreams. ☁️ ⠀

There are a few big dreams I have yet to attack. After some reflection, I think one of the reasons I haven't moved forward with them yet is, I've been waiting for permission from someone. For someone to come along who acts with authority, to tell me that I CAN do it, and that it's time to start taking those steps toward each goal. An agent, a manager, a mentor, a family member, a friend... but sometimes those closest to us don't know exactly how to help. And sometimes that authority figure we think we need just doesn't materialize. I've often wished I had "the machine" helping move my career in the direction I want it to go, and at a faster pace. It's exhausting sometimes trying to figure it out yourself, but it's also a precious freedom. Thank the Lord I live in an era where I have the liberty and ability to share my creative work all over the world without needing permission from anyone. Sometimes it feels like a disadvantage to be an indie artist and self-starter / entrepreneur, but it's actually a gift. So if you feel like you're being led toward a dream or a path, but you're waiting for some magical person to come along to connect the dots and give you permission, don't wait too long. Sometimes God does use people in our lives to enact big change, and inspire us towards what we've always been meant to do. But sometimes, like in my case, I think there's also a time to set aside our hope for HOW we want something to happen, and just move forward if we have that peace about it, knowing that it IS meant for us. That this vision for a special purpose or work wasn't given to you accidentally. That you are enough, and have been equipped innately with the abilities and tools to accomplish your dreams without constantly looking back, up and around for that fantastical human with "more wisdom" who has the power to make you feel safe to move forward. That Person exists, but He isn't human. He is so much more. So even if we don't have that human partner to walk us through each step, the One who created us will be the friend that sticks closer than a brother, and be with us every step of the way! ❤️

It was so much fun going off in a new direction last week with a cosplay and character I've never tried before! Thinking of all of you having a blast at AX while I film this weekend for some new videos! I am with you in spirit...and in cosplay! Haha! AX was my 1st con and holds my most precious memories...starting all the way back in 2004 or 2005 I think! 2008 was my golden year getting to cosplay Ariel for the 1st time & do AX Idol at the Nokia Theater. That's still one of the best days of my life. Crazy to think how that was 10 years ago now! 😱 Alrighty I've spent too much time on memory lane today-gotta run back to finish shoot prep! 😉 Can't wait to share more about this special project with ya-It's almost done! ✨✨✨⠀
