Excitement is around the corner, but I still need to push for what I want. Follow the structure that is laid out in front of me. I can do this. I can get everything I ever wanted and more. Working hard is the only way.
Last weekend my consultant, Thomas J Bellezza
( http://bbrproductions.com ) and I went over to the Players Theatre in Manhattan to attend an acting workshop led by Mr. Alan Gordon. I was so excited to be surrounded by people with passion and a zest for life.
Upon walking up the stairs I was immediately greeted by Mr. Gordon himself. At that moment, it was clear how excited he was to be able to teach this workshop and meet all of these new people.
Once we were seated in the room, Mr. Gordon began promptly with the material of the Meisner technique and giving ample examples of the technique using professional actors. Everyone was then given a turn in the first round of repetitions. This cycled through 3 times with plenty of time given to each student. By the end of the three hours we had a fairly good idea of what this workshop was all about.
Everyone takes something different away from every experience. For me, this was a great reminder that living in my head is a dangerous place. I feel that I can also use this lesson in life and not just in my acting. Learning to be more present when i am talking with the people in my life. Thanks to Mr. Gordon for a wonderful workshop and filling it with such talented people.
Change has always been a scary concept for me. Im not sure why or where it stems from. Even when things really NEED to shift, I always find it difficult. However, I am pleased to report that I have begun to take the steps to change my life for the better.
I began working with a consultant (BBR PRODUCTIONS), together we are working on a plan to get my life on a track so that I may follow my dreams and support myself while doing so. I have lists of things to do, people to contact, and things to work on and every day i will be completing a little bit at a time.
I am determined to make this change. This change is going to be the best change of my life. Despite how scary this ride is going to be. I’m ready for it.
