Today, I just want you to feel great about all that you are doing to follow your dreams, your passions, your goals.
Take a bubble bath in self-appreciation.
Can you love, for even just a moment, something you did to further your dreams recently?
I’m not kidding when I share this. I get at least one email a day during busy seasons from my alumni friends about some aspect that they are struggling with: agents, auditions, callbacks, acting jobs, day jobs. It is such a struggle to keep a positive spin on the obstacles that keep flying at us!
Today, on this day of love, let’s work on the mind-shift that it requires for sustaining this career for a LIFETIME.
Identify one positive thing that you LOVE THAT YOU ACCOMPLISHED in the past week, or month, or 6 months, or year!
Or, maybe it’s as simple as this: you haven’t quit or given up. Love that you have the strength to keep going.
Don’t neglect the things that you have accomplished and keep building upon them.
LOVE YOURSELF. Please. We need you to love yourself. And trust me, when you love yourself, everyone else will too.
Share what you achieved in your career this past year. Little things and big things are all valid.
Every year, I (re)post this Blog on V-Day to remind actors not to neglect the things that you have accomplished and to keep building upon them.
Let this blog and your comment become a marker for yourself that you can return to next year as PROOF of your accomplishments.
Play the game with me. Post in the comments below what you LOVE about your accomplishments from the past year.
Then, next year, when I repost this Blog again, you can see your comment again and track that LOVE for yourself…
