From My Acting Days: How Holding Open a Door Changed My Life
Here we are on the streets of Los Angeles—on San Vicente to be specific!
I’ve been recently housesitting in the mid-Wilshire area, and on my walk to Marianne Williamson’s weekly talks on A Course in Miracles, I wandered past an office building that took me back to October 2009…
Almost three years ago, when I was still living in a (sweet!) guest house in the Valley, working a rewarding part-time day job, and acting whenever I could (in fact, I was in stand-up classes at the time).
So it’s before I got rid of all my possessions and started living out of a backpack (or two); before I went to Hawaii for $5, and traveled to different US cities almost every week; and before I started working completely virtually!
On this particular day in October of 2009, I was another actor in LA, doing some actor-ly stuff—and then my life changed…
More on the Integrity Gap discussion.
PS – if you’re in LA, I highly encourage you to check out Marianne’s talks. At least once. :)
- Part spiritual teacher, part Q+A, part stand-up. Plus, it’s amazingly inspiring to watch someone do what they are here to do! She’s pretty awesome.
- Every Monday night at the Saban Theatre (Wilshire & La Cienega) @ 7:30 pm. Admission is $15, but no one is turned away.
- Free parking at the garage south of Wilshire at La Cienega and Gregory Way, on the west side of the street.
PPS – I’ll be doing a fuller post about this next week, but I entered the Awesome Food contest, and have a shot to win a trip to the Food Network offices in New York, lunch with an Awesome Trustee, and $1000!
I pitched a new show: a Healthy Travel Food program focused on where to find the healthiest food when you’re on the road: where to dine and where to shop! Plus, we’ll be learning about nutrition and sharing recipes! I’d love your support (most votes win), and appreciate you spreading the word! :)
So—back to the video up top:
Have you ever had one of those “spin-around-on-a-dime” moments because you *knew* you needed to do something? How’d it go?
I’d love to hear your response + any other thoughts you have below.
Thanks for being along for the ride… :)
Looking forward to learning more!
