I seem to be one of those types of people that occasionally starts something that never ends up being finished. One of my goals for 2016 is to create a vlog for every Friday for the rest of 2016. I obviously started this a little too late and I’m not completely happy with my first video because I didn’t take the time to prepare, but I started…that’s what’s important.
I recently heard a podcast that gave some really good advice, maybe it was from Inside Acting or from the Off Camera series (both of which I recommend)…or maybe it was from a book…my mind fails me. They were talking about artists creating. On social media the bullies really tend to come out. Sometimes creators are laughed at and torn down to the tenth degree in the comments that follow their post. Most of the time the posts that spark the most negativity are shared the most…unless it’s a cat playing a piano. The bottom line is that a person took the time and energy to create something. You might not get it, it may not pertain to you, and you may think it’s a waste of space on the world wide web. It doesn’t matter. They put it out there because it meant something to them and might be funny, motivational, silly, or maybe even crazy to another human being. That’s okay. Actually, that’s great!!
Artists paint pictures, do and say things, and provoke thoughtful ideas and imagery in the minds of others. They say things that others are thinking but are too scared to say outloud. They make you laugh and cry and they make you angry! Let them.
I’m an actor but I spend most of my time working for somebody else. I decided to mix the two together by creating this blog. Not only do I have a fun job, but now I’m starting to mix it with my passion. Watch the video below and subscribe to my channel..share it if you want..or don’t! I’m doing this for me and if I can entertain one person along the way, I’m grateful for it (Mom).
Trevor and AJ from Inside Acting have a motto for their podcast…”Always Be Creating.” Creativity means so many things to so many different people. Whether you’re working to create a more diverse group of friends, writing a book, or even making a new schedule for your carpool, you are creating!
This vlog is about goal setting. CREATE an action plan. You are going to ROCK 2016. Let’s do it together!
