Hi email folk, I’m letting this status report go out to you as there is much cool news in it. xoxoxox
I had a very exciting and fulfilling day. I had my first professional voice acting audition! Yay me! I’m on the bravery report for that. BC Sandy provided the opportunity and I swallowed my fear and gave it a go. Of course I would be thrilled and over the moon if I booked this job, but it is important to understand that it doesn’t matter if I do. It would be very unlikely in fact that I would book my first audition.
What excites me, is that my goal was to feel that I had the chops to audition for a job for real and not feel embarrassed by my audition AND I DID THAT! I felt I had a shot. I felt I gave my acting choice. I didn’t feel unworthy or incompetent. At this point, the client will decide if my voice and my acting choice suits their needs. End of story. I did all I can do, and I am satisfied with that.
How amazing that I don’t worry now, or fret, or wish ‘I’d done things differently’. What a blessing. I am pleased with my personal growth in that respect, and boy did I need it!
It was a challenge too, because our room was completely clear of equipment and dismantled as Mark and I (mostly Mark) continued to toil on creating the semi-permanent recording space in the guest room.
Another cool thing happened. The editors at Clammr, a social media channel that uses audio clips rather like IG uses photos, decided to feature my content in their personal growth channel. This is pretty cool, so I’m going to go back and create clips and links for all of the episodes. Hopefully we may gain some new BCs this way. Check it out!
Off to therapy, More construction, and more gratitude. I am so happy these days with my life. Wow! I’m not any thinner either. But macht nichts (doesn’t matter). I AM living a life free of the fear of food and making relationships with others and myself my priority.
How about you?
Please feel free to comment on MY statuses or add YOUR OWN thoughts, feelings, challenges, rants and raves on these pages too. That was one of the original purposes of why I posted on FB. I thought BCs might like to share about THEIR days. So if you have thoughts and feelings you’d like to share with the group, go ahead and put them here with your comments.
*Daily statuses are USUALLY not part of the blog’s email notification. When you enter your email under where it says SUBSCRIBE TO POSTS VIA EMAIL, you will be notified of regular blog posts and when podcast episodes are released. I didn’t want to clog your inbox with my daily statuses. However, the automatic publicize feature will inform you on my show FB page, my AdventureLaurie twitter account, google+ on its show page, and Tumblr.
PSS, some BCs have asked me the difference between blog postings and status pages. Blog postings are where I develop a complete topic triggered by my status thoughts. Status thoughts are how my day went, what’s on my agenda, and how my body feels today – and not much editing or thought goes into them. That’s why I don’t clog up your email with them. 🙂
