Simple truth of it is, I'm still a warrior in training. In fact, we all are. Those who say otherwise are lying! Sometimes worry will get the best of all of us but it's what we do with it when it threatens to take hold that really counts.

I used this photo to submit for a project that I'd love to work on, but I know there are no guarantees. In the past week, I got released from an avail for a gig I was really excited about . . . and another commercial I shot starting airing! This industry, and life in general, is chock full of ups and downs, ebbs and flows, whatever you want to call 'em. You audition: you book/ you don't book, you audition: you get cast, you don't get cast, you audition, you get a nice email about why you didn't get the job/ you never hear anything. I try to focus on the good and stay in the flow, and some days I'm better at it than others. Practicing an attitude of gratitude is my daily challenge, and I'm perpetually working on a strong mental game. Being my best self is just as (if not even more) important as taking the classes, investing in great headshots, showing up to support my fellow filmmakers and actors at screenings & festivals & plays & networking events. I love what I do even though most of the business is not glamorous and filled with temptation to succumb to self-doubt and criticism. Hope you have a wonderful Friday! #actressing#longgame#stronggame#passion#reddress#selfcare#staypositive#grateful#hashtagblessed#justkeepswimming#bluefish#teachamantofishandhewillnevergohungry#orhewillalwaysbefishing#thisturnedintoacountrysong
