New Beginnings

In Yoga this morning, the instructor offered us the intention of "New Beginnings". He talked about the idea of renewal, and leaving behind patterns that don't support us anymore. I found this to be highly inspirational, especially considering the "New Beginnings" I have started to encounter in my life.

I am so busy tonight. My to do list is a mile long and almost all of the things on my list have to do with improving myself as an actress and person. I'll make this brief.

What a gift to have so many opportunities knocking on your door-- what a bigger gift to be brave enough to say "No" to things that directly oppose those opportunities and actively hold you back.

I am at a point in my career where I am getting direct offers for roles, finding success and settling in to my true self. To be clear, I have so many miles to go. So many more years of pounding the pavement before I'm a "Success".  But I've also come so far. And now I'm at a precipice--I must leave behind things, jobs, people, who are actively holding me back from reaching the highest potential of my acting career.

What a place to be! I hope, years from now, I remember this feeling. I hope I remember the fear and the gratitude. And I hope I can successfully pass along helpful advice to aspiring actors who find themselves at their inevitable precipice---breathe into the New Beginnings! Hold on tightly. Let go lightly.
