After conversing with a fellow actor yesterday, I am going to try my hand at writing…
This fellow actor is an excellent writer and told me of the journey that lead her to become an amazing playwright and it inspired me to take a step, even if its just one step today who knows where it will lead tomorrow.
It is crazy how we yearn for something and never embrace it because it is too scary and too unknown, and really the only thing that is holding us back is our fear. Our fear of failing, of looking stupid (which actually never happens if you really think about it! You never will look stupid to anyone but yourself if you put your heart and soul into something, that is just your OWN Ego talking!), of finally embracing our full power and potential. It takes just one step everyday to change your life in ways you can’t even imagine.
Coming out to LA and embracing a career as an actor is the hardest thing I have ever done and it takes a lot of courage and faith to keep it going. So why is it so scary to take on something that is just so simple, like writing? Because of the unknown, but what the hell, might has well embrace this dream too.
None of us would be where we are at today without taking risks and facing the unknown head on, so why stop now. I am going to take on the task of writing a little something everyday here on my blog and I encourage you to look at something in your life that is scary and take just one step towards it…Just one!
I don’t know if anyone is following this, but if you are and you’ve read it, leave a comment on what you are scared of and want to embrace. If we keep striving together it will make it easier and who knows where we’ll end up.
P.S. Thank you Carrie for your inspiration!
