“It takes a lot of courage to release the familiar and seemingly secure, to embrace the new. But there is no real security in what is no longer meaningful. There is more security in the adventurous and exciting, for in movement there is life, and in change there is power. ~ Alan Cohen
With production of “All My Children” just two and a half months away from wrapping up, it seems I can’t get away from the question “What will you do next?”
The truth is I don’t know “exactly” what I will do next and that’s OK!
Last year, when I first moved to Los Angeles I came kicking and screaming.
I moved cross-country with a huge box of apprehension. I didn’t know the city well enough, I didn’t know many people I’d define as friends and one of the scariest of them all … I didn’t drive. Embracing change is not something that comes easily. You have to fix your mindset. You have to accept that things won’t be the same. You have to find ways to be excited about the unknown. It took an entire year for me to get acclimated with my new life because I was so focused on holding onto the old and familiar. The comfortable. Part of me feels like I wasted a year of my life sitting in opposition while a bigger part of me knows that it was the journey and transition that was necessary and most important. Because of that, I am a completely different woman than the woman I was just a year ago and I shall do my best to never resist change again.
