“I will not die an unlived life. I will not live in fear of falling or catching fire. I choose to inhabit my days, to allow my living to open me, to make me less afraid, more accessible, to loosen my heart until it becomes a wing, a torch, a promise. I choose to risk my significance; to live so that which comes to me as seed goes to the next as blossom and that which comes to me as blossom, goes on as fruit.” – Dawna Markova
A friend of mine once told me, even after I’ve read it in other places, “If you want it bad enough, just give it to the universe. It will help you.” I wish it was that easy. But it’s not. Shucks! You have to help move the process along.
I’ve finally dug my heels into the ground and have signed up for my first acting seminar up in San Francisco! It’s quite exciting. A lot of useful information can be learned but here’s the catch, it’s a one hour introductory seminar. Still, I will be moving in the right direction and I have to walk before I can run, right? And what might I be running to? Well, dear reader, my goal is to have some sort of representation by July of 2012.
So I’m “giving it to the Universe.”
In addition to the seminar tonight (7/21), I am hopefully going to score some tickets to the City Lights “Nine” preview that will have some opportunities for networking. I am a horrible schmoozer, so I can’t quite say I am excited for the show, but *cheerleader kick to the front and raise hand overhead* “Goooo…get’em!!” Aww man, the jittery hands are already starting. I hate it when I freak myself out!
Okay, Mr. Universe, you and me are gonna make it happen! Not the bodybuilder guy. blech!!
Here goes everything.

If you can’t get tickets, or you know for other shows too, this may sound wrong, but you might consider hanging out right after the show out front and just start talking to people. You know so many locals anyway. No one would even notice you weren’t in the audience! Just smile and say, “Great show!” You never know! I’ll come with you if you feel weird. You gotta get out there and be a little vulnerable sometimes, I think. *Hugs*
I would never have thought to do that. Hahaha. It’s a good idea, but I dunno. I did get cheap tickets for it for Aug. 4. But the show was like a special performance for the Theatre Bay Area Magazine subscribers and big wigs.
Maybe I’ll take you up on that offer for another show, though!! Love your ideas! See, just like the game the other night…
