So most of you know this about me already: I have a lot of energy. I mean like, all of the time! And you know what? I think might be kind of overwhelming to my friends, family and even my YouTube subscribers sometimes haha. But also, my crazy amount of energy is a part of who I am, and that is actually pretty awesome. In general, being who you are is always pretty awesome.
Through my experience so far in life and specifically through my experience here in Hollywood, I've recognized that it is extremely important to be exactly who you are. As many of you - my awesome readers - see on my blogs and vlogs often, being you is probably the most important aspect to the career path of an actor. (More on this here.)
Be Yourself and Own It!
I believe that embracing individuality is also probably one of the most important aspects of life in general. In order to be who you are, it's important to strive to live in the moment, to let your individuality shine and to not worry about what other people think about you.
Sure, this can be easier said than done. Many of us have spent years wanting to "fit in" with our peers and desiring to be "wanted" and loved. Hence, often times we aim to please others. While being pleasant and sharing kindness is amazing, it's important to not get too caught up in doing things simply in order to attain the approval or praise of other people. Be you. Your true friends will love you for exactly who you are, not for who they want you to be.
Back to my example of having a lot of energy - it can be overwhelming at times! I never stop - talking, having fun, wanting to enjoy the company of those who I care about, and I never stop moving. However rather than ever thinking that this energy and passion for life (and love) is "annoying" to others, I choose to embrace it about myself and hopefully use it to help make a lot of people smile!
Once you understand how incredible you are as an individual, you'll begin to care less about "approval" from others. Focus on what makes you different, and go with that in your life.
You're awesome, reader friend.
Have a great day and I'll catch you here soon and on my YouTube channel!
