Do you ever wonder when your face to face with a two paths in life what will happen when you take the path less traveled? Does it make all of the difference? 

I have found myself wondering that a lot lately because I am the creative type and am currently looking to get into the acting field. Acting is not described as a typical job, so when someone hears you say that you want to pursue acting, they tell you that you can't do that. 

That there, ladies and gentlemen, is a critic. They are the nay sayers. These are the people who keep you from living your life if you choose to listen to what they say.  The choice to go against the grain is what seperates the dreamers from everyone else. 

You may be wondering, well what exactly is a dreamer? 

Well, a dreamer is someone that is in a certain career field such as the arts and they simply do not listen to what the critics say and they keep focusing on bettering their craft. 

Dreamers never know when to quit or throw in the towel.  A lot of dreamers never have a plan B because their current plan is their only plan.

Now, don't get me wrong the dreamers have a lot of fear and anxiety just like anyone else that worries about the future and what it holds. But walking the path of a dreamer is uncertain and it's a life where anything can happen. 
Even after all of those times that a dreamer has failed, suddenly there's a positive event that happens and that's makes it all worth it in the end. 
If we as dreamers , hold onto those sudden glimmers of hope, it always makes it easier to think of those when we are down on our luck.   

Walking along this path is not an easy one, but if we don't take this shot at this life that we sacrifice for and dream of than what are we left with? Regret. 
If we simply give up our dreams we will only live a life that is built upon lies and pretending we are happy with our existence instead of being people who truly love what we do. When we are meant to do something in this life there is no control over it- it's our destiny.  We simply find what we love to do and we let it consume us from the inside out.

My road to stepping out of my comfort zone

Comfort zones. They can be life savors when you live with anxiety but they can also hold you back from making true and honest steps towards happiness.
I am sitting on a greyhound bus, cramped and needing to pee, headed south on I-95 with my comfort zone so far in my rear view mirror that it’s ridiculous. Am I freaking out? Yes. Am I doing something absolutely amazing and that needs to be done to snatch my life and my happiness back? Also yes. 

I am currently traveling to Myrtle Beach SC in order to spend 4 days with my beautiful girlfriend and I’m petrified. Why? I have an anxiety disorder and part of my living with this disorder is carving out a space in which I feel less anxious.

That space is my bedroom. In my bedroom, I’m completely comfortable. It’s been designed to be a space that is calm and safe. I have my coping items right there and I am able to use my other coping methods as needed. 

Now I have made a conscious decision to spend time away from all that in order to take this trip. It will either be a disaster as my anxiety says or a triumph towards slowly overcoming this fear. If I can make it through today, I’ve made a major step forward. 

This weekend will be a test of my ability to get out of my own head and take back what control my anxiety has stolen. It’s an excellent chance to not only step out of my comfort zone but to see if I am even able to with any degree of success.

It’s now just after 9pm at night and I only had a few minor problems with my anxiety manifesting throughout the day and evening and I am proud of myself for doing this so far.  Stepping out of the set boundaries I have for myself means I am willing to make the sacrifice to be happy. 

The next morning has arrived and i am pleasantly surprised at how my anxiety is slowly allowing me to thrive without the things that I have previously thought of as necessary.

Here’s hoping to a wonderful rest of the weekend! As always find me on your favorite social media sites.
