Reconfigure

It’s been awhile, lovelies.  I’ve come to this page multiple times in the last few weeks, tapping on keys but not finding the words.  I started reading through the archives, looking for I don’t know what, and I noticed that the same themes come up again and again- frustration and jealousy, then self empowerment and worth.  Like a cart riding on its coaster, it seems that the salient struggles for me are the same through time.  I start hopeful and charged up, with goals and creations and delight in this career, and then I fall on my face with cynicism, comparisons and aggravation at this field that I can’t seem to kick a hole in.

Aside from the obvious worry that I’m proceeding as a crazy person, never getting past my blocks, instead recycling my problems over and over, it’s become apparent to me that I have nothing new to say.  And if I have nothing worth saying, it doesn’t seem right to put finger to keyboard and type out rehashed drivel.

So, my readers (whoever that might be, if any of you exist) I am taking a hiatus.  I need to reevaluate what I want to say and if that’s worthy of your time.  With a few breaks here and there, I’ve attempted to post weekly to this blog since June 2013.  In the beginning, and right there under my title I proclaim

being thrifty, becoming handy, and avoiding cynicism in Hollywood

Well, as you likely know, I’ve not avoided cynicism in Hollywood.  But I have been thrifty and incredibly handy.  However, I’ve not often written about that here.  I’ve mostly written about the life of an actor and how to be proactive or change your mindset (since that’s clearly what I’ve succeeded at).  Perhaps, since DIY has become such a large part of my life, this blog will follow through with pt 1 and 2 of my subtitle.  Or perhaps I’ll let it go and be proud of the 5 years of posts I’ve created.

Whatever path I might decide to take, I want to thank you, readers, for tuning into this gals journey and staying along for the ride.  I appreciate you.  Happy 2018.

  1. I have certainly enjoyed this blog. While not an actor, I think you’ve spoken honestly to struggles that creative people deal with daily. It’s been nice to know I’m not the only one. Thanks for honestly sharing your journey. I look forward to the next stage of the blog….whatever that may be.

  2. You’re not alone. I know I go through this same type of deal in my life.  Just seems I can’t break the cycle.  Not sure what that means, other than it’s all a process.  We might get to a point where the cycle no longer exists, or that may be our life long struggle.  The good thing is that God knows all about it, and it’s all taken care of on His end.  We struggle; we grow. We struggle; we grow.  Each time we hopefully make a little progress and come closer to what we want to become.  I love your blog.  You are incredibly talented.  You have woodworking skills, sewing skills, you can act, sing, and play instruments.  You are incredibly pretty (inside and out).  I say you are one blessed lady.  I am thankful for you and love you to pieces.  Have a great 2018!  I am pretty sure God is not finished with you, and we will continue to see amazing things in your life.  “Do all the good you can, by all the means you can, in all the ways you can, in all the places you can, at all the times you can, to all the people you can, as long as you ever can.” John Wesley
