....of the new year :-) Always great to start a new year with an audition. Even better to start a new year with a booking, but that remains to be seen. I had fun! I think it shows when I do my auditions that I'm having fun, that I'd be fun to work with, that I'm competent, that I'm a good actor, that I'm based in honesty and groundedness, that I make interesting choices. Of course, that's from my perspective. We all want to think we're good at what we love. I've been an actor for a long time. I'm a much better actor than I was when I was younger. I know myself and the world sooooo much better, I'm more confident in who I am, I make choices that come from a place of honesty, and I'm not afraid to fail. That's a big one. Because we all fail at one time or another, and you know what? It's okay. Because how else can you learn what works unless you do what doesn't? Oh, and let me tell you, I have made some big, bold choices, only to realize midstream that I was totally wrong, but it was too late, so I just kept going. I laugh about it because really, it's pretty dang funny when I'm so off track, completely miss the mark (thank goodness it doesn't happen that often!), but I'm committed! And I'm sure those days aren't behind me! You have to dare to fail if you have any hope of succeeding.
I hope your fabulous failures lead you to soaring successes.
