The Audition & Blowing Up Myths on Being Present (Day 6) VIDEO #25DaysOfPresence

As promised, here is the lowdown on what happened in yesterdays audition. It was fun, eye-opening (literally) and call backs are next week so I will hear sooner than later if I was selected. That wasn’t really the point though. Daring to Suck is about welcoming adventure, risks and pursuing things that hook your passions. For me, I have always been drawn to acting but never followed through on it and regretted it.

Stepping into challenges  like this allow me to try again and not live in a “it’s too late / I’m too big / I’m to old” state of mind – because that stuff just isn’t true.

In this video I also want to share some unexpected examples of being present.

And in doing so I must warn you – there is air guitar and a possibly offensive impression of spiritual gurus I admire. Yikes.

Sometimes when I get going I kind of black out and when I watch it again I laugh AND cringe. But mostly laugh forgetting I ever did it.


As for Day 6,  I spent the day running errands with the boys and connecting with some amazing local businesses in Steveston that are all a hustle with the upcoming holidays.

We baked, decorated cookies, and listened to every christmas album we could find on youtube. I made cardboard swords, ninja stars and shields for them  to run around and hurt each other, in between stirring several simmering pots on the stove. I also found a moment to write and post this.

I know it sounds busy and it is. And I’m experiencing it all. Aside from the minor flesh wound, tantrum over uncooperative lego and an unintended backflip off the couch – it’s been a good day and honestly can’t believe I’ve made it this far. LOL

I’m so glad I did this. Thanks for following and sharing your thoughts and feelings along the way.

Enjoy your weekend soaking in all that is around at this beautiful time of year!

  1. I LOVE your videos. They make me smile. Every. Damn. Time.

    I also love the math of excitement = fear + breath. This is so resonant to me.

    In the triumvirate of love, I love your presentation of presence. Ya don’t need to be ensconced in a cave in the Tibetan mountains to cultivate awareness – you just need to be eyes wide open in your own life, as it happens. And……breathe (she said in her mellow, vaguely sing-song-y yoga voice that she is completely cool with).

    • LOL! I totally thought of you too when I was re-watching it. Knowing that some people can really pull it off, along with a genuine Namaste. I also love that out of the other side of your mouth a “cursive” sailor resides! Thanks you for the love and sending it right back my beautiful yogini friend! xo K
