One thing I noticed today as I was sleep training our 5 month old son, Liam, and potty-training our 23 month old daughter, Haris, they were both crying (no tears, plenty of noise)…
These are all the items I took with me when Haris was going to lay down to take a nap. My intentions were to read each book for 20 minutes, journal for 10 minutes or so, work on a monologue, reassess my goals and plan, answer 2 emails, and read 3 others. Easy enough.

Christmas was just last week, which means it’s almost 2018 . . .
I moved from thinking to doing. And guess what happened . . .
Ever make a complicated recipe? Or begin a project only to realize what you thought would take 2 days actually takes 2 months?

I woke up with a plan, I got to work, sat down and started working that plan, and then an interruption. A last minute audition at 1:00pm. Change in plans. I run home, get dressed, make up, etc., go to the audition, wait an hour to be seen, audition. On my way back to work, I get a phone call, another last minute audition. I stop at my first job to change clothes, eat lunch, and on my way to the second audition.
Now, I should be ecstatic!
Most people would agree, someone is either committed or not. Or maybe, committedly cheating.
I’ve cheated on several tests in high school, and dare I say college (y’all know who you are that came to my apartment with laptops…online tests…all turned in within minutes of each other…and the professor didn’t know? Maybe he/she was hoping we’d collaborate (sounds better than cheating, lets not deceive ourselves) Yeah okay…moving on).
Something dawned on me while doing my acting work this week. I was listening to a lecture of Diana Castle’s and she said,
“Many people hold back from investing fully and making full commitments because they’re afraid they might get hurt, disappointed, or rejected.” She goes on to say, “If you don’t make a full investment all you get back is more of what you know.”
