The past two years have proven … full of Love/excitement (some scary, some fun)/exhausting/infinitely hopeful.

Auditions have increased, and I have joined the stage union Actors Equity.  004-20Originally, I had solely focused on television and film, but acting in the British farce ‘Miranda’ as Lady Claire Martin, and a friend who worked on Broadway, brought me to the the realization that limiting myself to these two filmed mediums only was cutting out a whole opportunity to act.  The goal is : to act, to sustain myself financially through acting.  Stage acting can be lucrative, and certainly fulfilling, the characters robust and standing the test of Time, satisfying beyond being a background extra.

Limiting ourselves; placing restrictions on our Life’s satisfaction, ugh.  We, each of us, are deserving of happiness.  Whether we restrain possibilities of Love in a miserable relationship where we make too many unreasonable compromises to the benefit of another who consistently takes from us our energy, or in a job that depletes our creativity and passion in order to pay the bills.  Paying the bills is important.  Currently I am investing in my financial freedom by reading a digestible book called ‘InvestED’ by Danielle Town.  The stress of financial worry can wreck havoc on our health, and while I am reading a great deal more, in part thanks to a wonderful man in my life who also enjoys the delights and benefits of the exercise, if feels empowering to grow this knowledge.

Another area I have been in pursuit of more devotion: My own health.  Specifically, more dependable Yoga and Meditation practices.  Usually, I suppose, I have discovered, I can have a tendency to be an “all or nothing” mentality, a perfectionist unhappiness that accomplishes zero when five Sun Salutations or five meditative minutes is, in fact, better than none.  The Peace washes me of displeasure, fault-finding and “not enoughtist” mentality, leaving me happier, healthier, and good enough.
