Being Broken

Ever feel like no matter what you do, you just feel stuck. Almost like you are sinking in quick sand and can’t move? Everyone around you is watching but has no idea whats actually going on. You know you are stuck but have NO idea how to get out or even where to start?

Well, I have been feeling this way for while. Stuck. No physically but mentally my mind is just stuck. I don’t know where to go but standing still is only making me sink. I have stood still for so long that dragging my feet outta the sand nearly feelings impossible because I am currently “comfortable” as most people would call it. But living your life in comfort isn’t really living. Think about it, if you live your life day by day feeling “comfortable” in everything you do, never risking anything, your life becomes a boring routine in which you will grow to hate (at least I did). For me being comfortable in life means never moving forward and I’d be damn if I didn’t grow from where I’m at now.

I am in full realization that I was scared of what was next but I am understanding that the longer I stay still the deeper I will sink and the harder it will for be for me to just TAKE THE DAMN RISK.

So my curent advice to myself and others feeling the way I am currently is to just DO IT. There is no waiting for Monday, or I’ll start tomorrow. Nope, not allowed, in order to succeed we must START NOW.

For me starting includes finding where my next move should lead me, hopefully out-of-state and into more audition rooms.

Yours may be different from mine and that is totally fine but it is now that I want you take out a pen and paper and write down what truly is your next move. Do you know what the next step is? If not write down 3 things that you aren’t happy about in your current life, then next to them write 1 way you can fix each of them.

For example,

I am not happy with my currently living situation – look into moving out

I don’t like my job – apply to new jobs/ work on a resume

I am not physically happy with my appearance – start going to the gym

Writing down simple things like these will help you realize what actually needs to be done. For some reason when our brain sees them written down it starts to believe you are really interested in taking action on doing these things, rather than it just be another “idea” running through your head.

SO, here’s to the next 6 days of grinding really hard to MAKE things happen.

Remember, write them down.

NO IDEA IS A BAD IDEA,
