The last time I was here, I called it my virgin blog. I can safely say that not only did I lose my blog virginity with a bang, but I jumped right back in the blog sack pretty quickly. Getting my feet wet with a series of blogs has helped me come out of my shell. Oh, wait, I was never in a shell. LOL. So what can I talk about today since I bared my soul a handful of months ago with the release of Dangerous Race?
How about change? How many of you deal well with change? I’m pretty good at it, but that’s probably because I’ve worked in show business for so long. Change is inevitable in life, but in Hollywood it’s not only inevitable, it’s constant. Change can be really hard, but it does prepare you for the ever important facet of life that is always present… We have no control. Sure, we decide the little things in life, like I’ll take a turkey and cheese sub for lunch, but when it comes to the big decisions, the life changing ones, sometimes those decisions are simply out of our hands. And what happens when our life changes drastically? We have to cope, right? For some people, coping is easier than for others because some people simply are not good with change. Can you guess the most important part of change? (I’ll give you a hint.) Letting go. You have to let go of the past to enjoy your future. Gee… is there a couch anywhere around here? And can someone pass me a box of tissue?
But seriously, there is a reason I bring all this up. In Danger Zone, my heroine, Ellie, has to face immediate change and it scares her to death. She has no idea how to face her future. I couldn’t imagine that kind of fear so I’m glad I’ve worked in a business that’s prepared me for change.
Let me tell you, change is an acquired taste and not everyone is used to it, but everyone should learn to face it. What about you? Are you good with change or does it get the better of you?
