That was fast. 2017 just happened and now it’s 2018. The problem isn’t that the years keep coming and going.
The problem is that it seemed like it happened. Like I didn’t have something to contribute in the year. Or that I didn’t participate.
I wanted to become an Actor for lots of reasons. But mostly it was to feel a part of something. Because when you’re in a play, you’re part of something.
When you’re in a movie, or television show, you’re part of something. Every acting job is a part of a bigger whole. Because there are loads and loads of professional creatives working to all make something. You’re never alone. You’re a part of something bigger than yourself.
2017 felt like I was alone. Like the year just happened. What’s worse, is that I believe in my heart that I just let it happen. I hate that feeling.
So now that 2018 is here, I am making the choice to step out and be a part of something. To make stuff. To be creative and enjoy this year, despite the challenges and set-backs that are absolutely going to happen.
It’s time to create. It’s time to make stuff. It’s time to share the creative and joyful parts of being an Actor and a creative.
This blog and these pages are a small part of that step. Because 2017 was the last year I let happen to me. I’m going to be an active part of my journey. I hope you will be an active part of yours. Let’s make stuff.
