So maybe you've noticed that I have consistently been doing Vlogs every two weeks when I said I wouldn't? Well it's actually a GOOD thing. I have been busy every week the last couple weeks with some good news, so I've been condensing information into one biweekly Vlog. Check out the latest one below and you'll see what I mean...
Marie's Acting Journey 2017 | Wk. 28/29
1. What did I learn this week about my craft?
During the time when I wasn't getting any auditions for months, I made it my business to create my own goals, sit at my computer and look for producers to connect with and projects my agents may not have scene. That brought me to the world of Backstage. I was able to submit to a very few number of projects, but I got cast in one. This week, I am in the issue sharing briefly about how Backstage helped me put a "slow time" to good use. Now that things are busier, I am trying to borrow some good habits I had built from that slow time. Get to it, Marie!
2. What am I currently working on?
Auditions have picked up, and it's such a blessing. But acting class also started again and it's already kicking my butt. What else have I been doing? Well, it's election season for SAG-AFTRA, and I'm thrilled to be running for convention delegate for our Atlanta local market. Can't wait until the campaign season is over though. Politics are rough. I'll be glad for a chance to represent my fellow actors though.
3. What was my "faith" lesson this week?
Being CONTENT- that's what I need to get a grasp on. I read a perfect quote in a spiritual book today. It said "True contentment is the power of getting out of any situation all that is in it." (G.K. Chesterton) Wanting what I have experienced in the past and what I expect in the future often time keeps me from focusing on all that is now. It leaves me overly hungry, envious and frustrated. These are things that kill the soul. So it just needs to stop. Time for me to wake up, keep pushing forward, but to be happy with all that is in front of me. That's a good lesson right there.
