"The label you give yourself cannot impact external forces that are not motivated by your own psychology or influenced by a third party's pre-existing consciousness of you. We are all presented with reasons to struggle which come from completely external forces; to pretend that one is not struggling is either arrogance or an admission of defeat. To admit that one is struggling is a sign and a source of strength." - Evan A. Baker

It's Been a Good Day

Actually, it's been a really good few days. Even though I can't seem to fall asleep until 3am, I am feeling happier in life right now. I don't know why, but positive people seem to be attracted to me lately for some strange reason, and I am lucky enough to absorb their happiness and feel it all around me, with the notion that the next two years are going to be very good for me both professionally and personally. This reminds me of the time I was walking to take a shuttle van from the Universal Parking Lot in Universal Studios up to City Walk where I worked (holiday weekends meant our employee parking got moved to inside the lot and we were shuttled up) and I walked past the gigantic numbered sound stages, and even though I had my Cafe Tu Tu Tango shirt and apron on, I knew, I knew, that one day I would work in one of those stages. I have that glorious feeling again of supreme happiness and contentment. Perhaps it's the combination of writing more and feeling more confident and putting the self doubt on mute and hearing the Voice/Universe/God inside saying, "Good Job. This Is Good. You Are Back On Track And Exactly Where You Need To Be Right Now."

I had an audition today where it took me THREE times to get the sides right. This audition had blocking which I messed up, and I dropped a few lines the second go round. But get this! They LIKED ME! It's my weekly article today at Backstage's Unscripted and who should see it but Casting Director Marci Liroff (her last name is pretty awesome, yes? Like my first and her last name are the Russian words on an on/off switch) and she commented how she liked the article so much, as she says the same thing in her classes, that she reposted it on her Facebook Fan Page.

I am so incredibly thankful for all of your positive feedback and support. I read every comment and am just blown away. And I know I said it last week, but seriously. Thank you.



  1. I call this The Law of Attraction in action. If you are unfamiliar with this particular law, it is pretty easy (and I detail it somewhat in one of my more recent postings if you're interested:-). You get what you think about. Positive thoughts build positively. Negative thoughts build negatively. Thoughts become things, choose the good ones.

    Big applause on your audition. Standing O!!!!!

  2. Yes positive people find the positive people and then we RULE THE WORLD!!!! The happier I am the more I get insomnia, but its a good trade off. Glad to hear things keep getting better and better for you. Alright gonna read your Backstage article now...

  3. Loved the Backstage article--made me smile. I only hope to be that easy going in future auditions. Good job!

  4. YAY, yay, yay!! And please, let's hang out soon.


Play nice.
