Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that frightens us. We ask ourselves who are we to be so brilliant, gorgeous, talented or fabulous? Actually, who are we not to be? We are children of God. Our playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightening about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around us. We are born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It is not just in some of us... it is in everyone of us. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give others permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fears, our presence liberates others.
people think it's holding on that makes one strong; sometimes it's letting go.
For it was not into my ear you whispered, but into my heart.
It was not my lips you kissed, but my soul..
Everyone is meant for someone.
I believe that you are my someone."
Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did do." -- Mark Twain
In Strength, there is Weakness. It is only in Weakness, that one may find Strength."
Honest! Face Reality! Re-Balance Everything in your
Life! Your Body, your Mind, Your Soul... Face Yourself, Face Your
Past, Enjoy the present and work with it, Mould the Future.
No matter what it takes or how long it takes or what it costs you never give up on what you want and more importantly, who you love.
We are what we think.
All that we are arises with our thoughts.
With our thoughts we make the world.
Speak or act with an impure mind and trouble will follow you as the wheel follows the ox that draws the cart.
Speak or act with a pure mind and happiness will follow you as your shadow, unshakable.
How can a troubled mind understand the way?
Your worst enemy cannot harm you as much as your own thoughts, unguarded.
But once mastered, no one can help you as much, not even your father or your mother.
earth turn to bring us closer, it turn on itself and in us, until it
finally brought us together in this dream.
The only barometer you have is your heart. How, when you spot your flower, you can't let anything get in your way.
The adversities that come along to bury us, usually have within them the very real potential to benefit us... At the end of the day, we can endure much more than we think we can. It's never too late to become what you might have been… Never Give Up!
what is really hurting you is your own perception of things.
Life begins to end the day we are silent about things that matter. (MLK, Jr.)
Those are my principals. If you don't like them, I have others. (Groucho Marks)
~~~ I Am An Actor ~~~
I know what it means to want to be better than I was yesterday. I know what it means to want to be the best I can be today. I accept that it's not enough to just want to be better than yesterday or the best I can be today. I can't sit around and talk about how much I want it. I have to stop thinking about it and wondering about it and hoping for it and actually go out and do it.
I have to do whatever it takes to be my best. And then, whether I win or lose or collapse in the process, I'll know exactly where I stand and if I'm not satisfied, I must do it again and again and never quit. No matter what it takes... no matter what it costs. I may lose my friends and maybe even the ones I love, but if I care about being the actor I want to be, then not doing it will be more painful than losing a couple of friends or sleeping alone.
To be the actor that I want to be takes persistence and determination. There is no time to say, "I made it." There is no end to this trip, only brief moments where maybe I can slow down and enjoy the view for a short time, but I must keep going. That's the discipline it takes. Passion is not arrogance. I have to believe in myself and in what I do and in what I am capable of doing and do it. Don't think... do!
No one is going to care what kind of sacrifices it takes. They just want to be entertained. They want to laugh and cry and feel things through me and talk about it later. They will scrutinize my work while not having the first clue of the level of commitment it takes. And if I try to tell them what it takes, they won't care... it's not important to them and for that matter, it's not important to me. What is important to me is that I am an actor.
