Gratitude 365

Gotta be thankful for even the smallest of victories:

1. Grateful that I had such a blast at my audition yesterday
2. Grateful that I had the courage to drop off my movies to a target CD
3. Grateful I have a car again
4. Grateful for my friend Jayme
5. Grateful for inspiring movies like 'Django'

'I'm so happy and grateful that I booked a supporting role in a SAG feature'

I'm doing a 42-day Book a Job Challenge and part of the process is keeping a gratitude journal daily.  I've done this challenge once before and my favorite part was starting each and every day with the things I'm grateful for.  It really makes you focus on what's important in life and makes you less worried about what you're doing wrong or could be doing better.  Keeps me present.

So, on to day 10 of the challenge!  My goal today is to work on a 'One Sheet'.  I'll share it here when I'm done!

What're you're goals for the next 42 days? Inspire me!

Change of Perspective

Isn't funny how when you're a little kid, the idea of getting up for school before the sun rises was torture?  I remember my mom dragging me out of bed at 6am, and still being asleep as I fumbled around looking for something somewhat clean to wear.

This morning, I got up at 6:20am and rode my bike to Pilates class and was out of class by 7:50am and watching little kids pile off the school bus into the elementary school down the street.  I felt great!

I'm not gonna lie, the idea of getting up in the morning still makes me hesitate the night before, because I do tend to enjoy my evenings and try to make them last as long as possible.  But while I was stretching and doing my 100's at Circuit Pilates, I didn't regret getting up with the sun at all.

If you had asked my 6yr old self, 'What do you imagine you're life being like 20some odd years from now?'  I'd most likely have answered, 'Sleeping late, eating cookie dough for breakfast and owning a bunny farm.'  Well, 6 yr old self.  You can thank me later!  Perhaps there's still a chance for that bunny farm...
