11/12/13 There are always ups and downs with this business of course and I have been keeping positive but I hit a down this afternoon. I have not worked any acting or modeling gigs this entire week. I have taught lessons and gone in for auditions and been in class this past week, but no gigs. I like to be constantly working and so this was hard to swallow. I was talking about this and hashing out this down feeling, when I realized wait, this is exactly what I have been wanting and exactly what I had asked for. Well, kind of, but not quite the way I imagined. I recently said that I wanted to be working and auditioning for better projects, more meaningful projects. I wanted to stop working the projects I could care less about or the ones I was doing just for a paycheck. And in reality that is exactly what I am doing. I thankfully do not have to work those jobs that were basically meaningless to me anymore. I have a full studio of piano and voice students. I am auditioning for awesome projects and projects I am very interested in. I am on hold for one commercial project and in talks for a three feature film project. Celebrate all successes. These are good meaningful projects I am excited for. All of these thoughts made me think back to the theme from class this past week which was to honor yourself, and that essentially is what I am doing. I am honoring and being true to myself by working more on music and working on projects that are more meaningful to me. I have to remember that the business side of things in this industry is basically a numbers game and to continue to keep positive, be truthful and to honor myself.
