DAILY AFFIRMATION: I STAY TRUE TO MY PATH
Back to my PERSONAL questionnaire (contd. from “Be your own teacher” https://ibelieveandbecome.com/2010/11/21/79/
Ask yourself! Every so often I like to reevaluate my goals & values to make sure they are still in alignment with my personal mission.
Today I’m focussed on why it is I do what I do here in LA! Too often have I seen people let failure deter them from reaching life goals & forget why they came out here in the first place. I also see this with sudden or earned success. Hollywood will eat you up & spit you out, if you let it; it’s a cliche for a reason. Never lose sight of why you started doing what you do best. Ask yourself the basics & get back to doing what you love to do for the LOVE! Stay Passionate! Stay connected, be present, feel blissful. Ask yourself & observe!
Why did I pursue acting? I want people to feel. I take the risk & challenge of recreating life’s extremities so that I can take people places they don’t want to go in their own lives, rather live vicariously through the stories & characters I bring to life.
What’s my favorite aspect of acting? It’s a reflection of True life. Inspiring people to live, truly live. I can only be as good as my own life’s experiences. I am not an impersonation, therefore I live in every moment as honest or painful as it may be. Not to suppress is a sense of freedom!
What person, song, art or moment influenced you, your style or career path? Madonna inspired the all around performer in me. Enough said. Lucille Ball & Goldie Hawn enlightened my passion for acting. I love comedy:)! I don’t take myself too seriously, that’s the key ingredient to having fun & staying excited about this craft.
Most rewarding moment? I jumped back on stage just 3 weeks after my accident & received a standing ovation in a John Patrick Shanley show I was in. To earn the credibility of a hard working, talented actress. Still learning & still working.
How does LA nurture my passion? Diversity. I learn from people watching & interacting with such interesting personalities every day. LA also represents art & creativity. The best of film & entertainment.
What was your dream career? Inspire people through my creative expression: Acting, dancing, singing.
Are you living it now? I am an actress. Whether on a huge film, indie, or stage, I ultimately do what I do to inspire & impact even just one life. My story & outlook on life has inspired more lives than ever imaginable!
