An apology to those who believed in me

March 14, 2012

I’ve heard it said that in order for something to really resonate, the average person has to hear or see something three times. Over the past several months I’ve heard a very similar thing from friends, or even acquaintances, that finally hit home to me. I think at first I doubted it. Then maybe I was too busy rushing to auditions or too stressed by script memorizations to listen.

This is what I finally took the time to listen to:

“Wow, she always seems to have another project to work on.”

“I am so excited for where you are going as a performer!”

“I hear you are doing great things.”

The old-me would discredit these remarks and think “If only they knew how hard I’m working and how far away I feel from my dreams!” But the me-of-today has decided that I am exactly where I need to be. And I don’t just mean geographically. If you follow me on twitter you’d see that I just moved to the crazy exciting city-of-dreams Los Angeles! But beyond that, I am so incredibly blessed to be building a life around this dream I have of being a performer. Don’t let anyone tell you that your dreams are not achievable. To my friends who knew I was already achieving mine, THANK YOU. I’m sorry I didn’t believe you earlier. Join me in counting blessings, remembering dreams, reassessing goals, and moving forward! Cheers!

    Awesome post, girlie! It’s so important to be proud of where we are NOW as long as we’ve worked hard to deserve it. Our sights are so set on our end results sometimes, that we forget to accep that our means to those ends are pretty impressive too.

    I love this post. And friends/family are so important for reminding us of how much we’ve accomplished, when it’s easy to lose sight of it. I always love going home to Florida to get some perspective like that because people there think I’m some kind of rock star, even when I’m feeling like “just another actress in NYC.”
