I heard that phrase A LOT when I first came in and resented it greatly.
Also, being a graduate of the 'Delusions of Grandeur' school of thought have always envisioned my wildest dreams to be standing in the spotlight on a Broadway stage with millions of adoring fans & cameras flashing...
...today, I was overcome with emotion and the realization that in fact today my life is beyond my wildest dreams!
I woke this morning from a full restful nights sleep, warmed up in the shower, went to an audition which I was fully present for, showed up at work and am doing my job. After work I am going to a meeting, then to rehearsal for a reading of a show that I'll be performing this week. I'm living a life and it's mine.
Today I am in my life and it is a joy. This feeling is way better than anything I'd ever imagined on that barstool.
A part of my Dad's spirit - is a part of mine.
