Well this is weird... I literally just sat down and started to write this first blog post and almost started crying. What is that all about!? I'm sure it's because it's something big I'm doing for myself, and I can't wait to share it with all of you.
2016 didn't end the way I expected which means that 2017 didn't start the way I had planned, but the coolest thing happened! It led to the theme for my year (Faith) and gave me clearer direction on what I am doing, and this blog is how I'm going to record my journey through the year. Below is a breakdown of exactly what I'm doing. Check it out!
Here goes, the first vlog: Marie's Acting Journey 2017 | Wk. 1
It's a WEEKLY VIDEO BLOG (VLOG) posted on my YouTube Channel and shared here on my website as well on my social media sites.
Okay, honestly, this is an accountability tool for me. But hey, I'm an actress... I like being on screen. Sue me! Please don't. My goal this year is to be faithful and optimistic in everything I do, and to enjoy doing it with whoever is involved. I want to "See What I Can't See in 2017." If you know anything about me, I like things that make sense, where I can see the end result, but life doesn't work that way, so I'm challenging myself to do something crazy faithful.
Thursdays, just cuz. I like Thursdays. 50 posts in 2017. My virtual acting journal.
I want to share 3 things every week with my fans, my friends, fellow acquaintances and actors that may find what I learn in my journey to be useful in theirs. Sometimes, these points will overlap, but if I can get them in, then it was a successful week!
#1- What practical tips or skills did I learn in the last week?
#2- The work I'm doing now: What am I currently working on and excited about in my craft?
#3- The Faith Lesson: What did I learn about being faithful this week?
Thanks for reading!
