When I Feel Blue...and diet coke just isn't enough
If there is one thing I am "known for", it is my positive nature. Well, that and my love affair with Diet Coke. But that is another story...
Yes, I am generally very upbeat and optimistic.
In fact, I even did an entire vlog post about my attitude a few months back. People who know me understand that it is just part of who I am. Much like my red hair or sarcasm.
But even I sometimes waver in my "lets do this!" attitude about my career. I even, on very rare occasions, forget why I love acting. Usually it is when it is my time of the month or I am out of Diet Coke...but whatever.
And when it does... I have a trick. I watch a project of mine that I love. (Yes, it also works to just watch really good cinema but that is not the point ...) In this case, I watch a comedy pilot I shot a few years back: The Paranormalists
I played a hippie dippy psychic named Jennifer. She was strong and funny sarcastic (a real stretch as you can see) and easily one of my favorite characters to play.
Reflecting on an amazing time doing an amazing project with amazing people...it is amazing.
And just what is needed to get me back in my "I love my job!" frame of mind.
So next time you think "I will never act again and I don't care", grab a Diet Coke and hit play on your favorite project. And remember...
