If there is one, huge, GIGANTIC lesson I have learned in this wacky life, it is that once you catch a wave of momentum, DO NOT LET GO. Momentum comes to all of us at all times during our lives. It comes like a bat out of hell and hits like a frying pan to the face. Momentum gives you exactly what you need at exactly the right moment. Do not mistake it for "a lot on your plate" and crush it with negativity. No, you rejoice and roll around in it like a pig in sh!t.
When I was out in California, I was slammed with life. It was awesome. I was working my butt off for an incredibly fun talent manager. I had all kinds of auditions. I just wrapped up filming an episode of Charmed. I got my SAG card. I was offered a 5min standup slot at the Comedy Store. Life was good. But then, like a true bonehead, I took a vacation, RIGHT IN THE MIDDLE OF IT. Why? Because I felt I was too bogged down with all of these amazing opportunities that I deserved a break...from living the dream. Ugh! I TOOK OFF!!! Can you believe it?
Momentum was annngry! It kicked dust in my eye and left. Then nothing for a long, long time. The funny thing is that it has taken me to the age of 34 to understand how important it is not to get frazzled by momentum but rather catch it and ride that rascally bastard all the way into the station. There are so many times in life that momentum catches us off guard that we freeze up and do nothing! Or we get that push of encouragement that touches our soul that makes us want to climb a mountain and conquer it, but then...We don't! We let thoughts get in the way, fears, society, beliefs, NONSENSE. When you get the momentum in life, no matter what form, DO NOT JUDGE IT!
THE KEY: Build it up every single day. Do not break it. Even if it's tiny (size, in this case, does not matter). If everything is energy, move it and build it up. Workout, write, call, LOVE, speak, create, learn, listen, ANYTHING.
You put a lasso around its neck, saddle up, and ride that magical beast as far as it can go.
Then you can take a vacation.
