Honestly, it's kind of tough for me to be writing about this as it's a bit of a "blow to my pride" to admit that I'm..well umm kinda low on ca$h! Haha! (awkward laugh ha) ..But hey, you know.. I want to be honest with you all about what it's truly like as an actor in this crazy industry. I value your taking the time to read my blogs, and honesty is always best!! When many people think of Hollywood actors, they think all of em' are making tons of money. That's just not the case- it's tough out there man! -At least until you get a big break!
ANYWAYS, back to what I was saying.
You know what I've learned about not having money? Well, a lot. My Mom, my twin sister Shannon and I, have never really had a lot of money, so I'm kind of used to that. But recently things have sorta errrrm gotten tougher, to put it lightly. It will be ok though. You ALWAYS gotta look for the positives!! Mama Daley often reminds me of that. I've learned to appreciate things soo much more, especially food and eating out at restaurants haha. I mean I always try to appreciate everything, don't get me wrong! But when you're at a point financially that even eating a lot of food is a "luxury", it can be very humbling. It makes me remember how many people do not have anything at all- no place to live, no food, etc. As an American, I have the opportunity to pursue my dream- and you cannot put a price tag on that. I am SO fortunate to have what I have in my life, even if things are kind of tough financially at the moment! I have what I need. Plus, I have a whole lot more than that- an amazing family, friends, and lots of YOU followers on my twitter (DALIENS!) who make me smile every single day!! I mean how cool is that!? I've also learned to work harder than I ever have before in order to make my dreams come true, and to be able to give back and help others! You just can't ever give up. Try to enjoy each moment, even when you may feel kind of helpless. Never forget that you are loved by many people. And money cannot ever buy love or happiness. <3
