All About Acting

I use to wonder where people found the hours and energy to belong to several things, have a job, a life, kids and still like people – I now know that they don’t have the hours or the energy and they don’t keep up with all of those things, and they certainly don’t like people – they’re just actors that didn’t make the cut to stardom…..

Digging Holes

Pay attention to the size of the hole you’re digging – its almost big enough to bury yourself in…

Reality

When I look back over the timeline I call life and I see those times where I’ve stood feeling naked, helpless and totally alone. I now know those are the times that I was graced with a new opportunity. A rebirth of sorts, a chance to start over.

I never desired to be heartbroken or to have to start my life over, not even once. Thats not how its written it the fairy tales. Thats not what I dreamed of as a lil girl or young lady.

In my mind it was a simple plan. A one shot harmony that evolved into beauty and a lifetime of happiness. Sure I knew there would be bumps maybe even a road block or two – but I never dreamed there would be times it would feel like a mine field in a foreign country.

My momma always showed me to do what’s right, no matter what, just do what’s right. That is not always the easy path – I promise. I’ve tried to follow that. It has caused some pain, tears and maybe a heartache. You see I believed everyone was taught the same. It came as a shock to realize that there are a lot of people in this world that believe the world was created for them and them alone. That in itself has been painful.

As I look back at those hard times, from this side of the fence, I am thankful. The grass is not always greener and sometimes it has taken a journey through the desert to touch any grass at all – I am still thankful.

Today I am a very strong, independent woman. I have been successful thus far in life. All of my children make make proud and I have a husband that supports me unconditionally and spoils me rotten.

If the journey had been easier and the road less rocky I might not be who I am today. So thank you to those that have come and gone and to the few friends that has walked besides me for much of the journey. Each of you hold a special place in my heart.

One friend has not only walked beside but knows my skeletons personally, her name and face are etched upon on my soul. I would not have had the strength to cross some necessary fences if you would have loaned me some of yours – thanks Nell.

Here’s to another day of being thankful. Looking back with open eyes, a greatful heart. Reality is what it is, the good with the bad, only we can define who we will become from it. I choose to be strong and take those lessons in stride!

Moving On

As I’m up and about at 5:30 am I’m asking myself – how on God’s green earth did I get up and go to work at 4 am all of those years?? And then work 12 plus hours, day after day, in a nonstop environment.

Funny how you get to the other side of any journey and look back to reflect, the view is sure different from this side of the road.

I’ve never been afraid of much, and I’ve always been able to step up to the plate and do what I believed needed to be done. I became numb to the toll it really did take on my mind, body and probably my soul.

We become wrapped in what we do, for me it somehow became who I was. As time slips and the layers shed away so does the pent up emotions of being bound up in the tension of daily, never ending caious. A merry go round of sorts, the horse ride that can go on forever and take you no where – regardless of how long you ride. Know when to get off of the horse.

So many lessons. Wisdom gained, fears lost, tears cried and dried, hopefully lives touched. Reflect and move on. Never let yesterday’s journey keep you from tomorrow’s adventure.

Next……

Moving Forward

Often in life we are given exactly what we ask for – even if it comes at a time that we dont remember having asked.

When desires are strong, even if unspoken, the energy draws those things to us. Funny that sometimes we forget to stop that flow of energy when we change direction.

I am thankful for all of the gifts life has granted me. I am also thankful for the gentle reminders that so many of my desires have been granted, even when I have changed direction.

Moving forward in my mind, releasing spent energy. Nothing is a waste, all things come with lessons we would find nowhere else. Accept the lessons, once again make peace with what is and move forward with no regrets.

The dark of night is an opportunity to renew, tomorrow is a new day to reflect. Moving forward…..

The Biggest Battle

The biggest battle we fight sits right between our ears – the rest is easy.

Make peace with the demons, silence the roar, make yourself happy, spend quality time with those you love and when what ever you’re doing is not longer fun or healthily change it.

Living with no regrets means being willing to make tough decisions, walk through some pain, occasionally share others sufferings and trusting yourself enough to follow your gut.

Everything has a season in life. We can force things to grow out of season but rarely will they flourish. When the season ends let it.

Move forward. Please yourself, take care of your own and make the time to spend with those that matter – it will never make itself!

Life is shorter than we expect, some things we take for granted and can never be retrieved.

Let the battle go and enjoy life!
