I have to say it is good to be back in LA!! After the whole Washington D.C. debacle, I have returned with more determination and focus than ever before! I think I'm experiencing an emotional high when you take in the fact that July rent hasn't been paid (whoops!), got no dinero coming in at the moment (shocker!) but yet I know that everything is going to work out in my favor and I'm just going to keep chugging along (I think I can, I think I can, I think I can...) and I have my uncle to thank. Yes, yes that same sad sack of...ok I won't go there ANYWAYS I thank him because I came face to face with one of my greatest fears. Someone who I was seeking validation from looked me straight in the eye and told me I just don't cut it and my dream ain't gonna happen MOVE ON!!! And the beautiful thing is I looked him right back and stood my ground (didn't know I had it me!). And while I haven't achieved my ultimate goal of success my dream is coming true because each day I am living my dream with each monologue and scene I look for, class and audition I go to, project I work on and I get excited and happy. I'm blessed with the guts to go for what I want and when the panic attacks, doubts, fear, depression and self loathing arising I have a wonderful support system of dear friends who will have absolutely none of it. They pick me up and dust me off when I can't do it for myself. I also want to send a shout out to all the great comments left on Getting Real in Washington D.C. It warmed my heart and the encouragement it gives me to keep on keepin' on is priceless. Thank-you! So to everyone out there cross your fingers and wish the best for me and I'm doing the same exact thing for you!
Cheers to All of US!
P.S. yes, yes, I know I'm late but I promise you the cocktail of the month and the AWM will be up soon!
