We get on a bit of a rant about tryin to catch that big break from time to time. I know I was all goin off, havin my own "Bruce Almighty" kind of moment the other day. Cause here we are, year after year, producin really great, entertaining video / TV work. Produced 5 movies aimed at helpin people & savin lives. The majority of the work we do is to help charities & non-profits raise funds to HELP people. And I may be biased, but I def believe that O really is the best kept secret in the world of media. And can we catch a break? Can we get discovered? Nooooooo, God (or Goddess, or the Higher Power, or Powers That Be, or whatEVER you wanna call it) is too busy givin fuckin SNOOKIE every thing she wants! GAWD! *ahem* /rant.
Anyway...doesn't there come a time when you have to decide that, maybe it's just plain ol not gonna happen if we stay the current course? Maybe this isn't the right place. Or maybe it's just not our time yet. Aren't we always right where we're supposed to be? Maybe a major change is needed. And then I ran across this statement online somewhere. It said:
"Making a big life change is pretty scary. But, know what's even scarier? Regret."
And I was all like, WOW. And I just haven't been able to get that thought outta my head. Eh, kinda heavy for me, I know, but this is where my head's been lately. It's really hard to know the right thing to do, especially when you're thinkin of makin big time, major, major life changes.
And so I think it's easy to get caught up in feelin that "the grass is always greener...." ya know? But, maybe everything is pretty damn great & I'm just too wrapped up in my own bullshit. So, I'm gonna share with you some very wise words a very good & dear friend said to me...or typed to me. And I quote her with her permission. She said:
"The grass might be greener elsewhere but at least I know my own field, I know where the piles of shit are, I know where the holes are, I know where the creek runs and the where the flowers bloom, and I know the best spots to sit. There's shit in all those other green fields too. It's just in a different location." ~ K.C.P. (Doncha just love her way with words?!)
And again, I was all like, WOW. No, this doesn't answer all the questions I'm goin round & round with, but it sure did hit the nail right on the head for me on some stuff.
And I really do think we are due for that big break....
