Blind faith is one of my favorite things in the world. Blind faith in yourself to accomplish something, blind faith in love, blind faith in whatever life may give you. And yes, I am quite aware to how dangerous it can be and I have gotten myself in a flurry of terrible situations directly from my blind fucking faith but that's okay. It was worth it.
I think blind faith is what is keeping me so happy and hungry out here. Today a friend messaged me. We don't know each other much, but he told me how inspirational watching this journey of mine was. I'm not used to receiving compliments like that... but it had me thinking that I'm steps closer to what I actually want to do. (So for that, my friend, thank you for igniting the fire even more)
My mission statement (Thanks, Chris Edwards, for making us write these. I literally use it everyday in my life and tell everybody to write their own.) is to explore the world, tell stories and teach lessons through performing, and spread happiness while giving voice to those who do not have one.
I know it's silly, but one person telling me that my whole journey gives them hope really does make me crazy thankful to even be on this whole adventure. I'm steps closer to really achieving my goals and putting my mission statement where my mouth is. For the past few nights, I have been getting no sleep, staying up to perform or watch shows, and just doing what I love. Who would have known how much that fuels you?
I guess the point I'm trying to make is... Blind faith can be an awesome thing. It's what brought me to New York and it's whats keeping me here. Having that sense of hope that no matter what, things will work out, things will be fine, and I am exactly where I need to be is more comforting than anything (well maybe besides chocolate). And out here, I have met people who are just as hungry as me, even more so and it makes me go crazy. I love it so much. Somehow, I have surrounded myself with an AMAZING fucking group of people from projects, comedy, work, and the oddities of life who are so driven. I guess passion really does breathe passion.
So, I guess that's it. Passion, blind faith, and a whole lot of hope.
I'll get there.
The world is such an exciting place.
