I don’t feel incredibly content in my current work situation. Since giving up acting last year, I feel like happiness has been a daily struggle. I love my life. I love my fiancé and our two adorable cats. I love my family and I am grateful for my health and the fact that I even have a job. But it is so hard doing anything different once you give up such a long standing dream.
I have two jobs, actually and I am happy to have the employment. I don’t dislike my current work situation due to any fault of my employers. It’s just not what I always dreamed of doing. In the weeks that come, I plan to do a substantial about of research and digging into both on-line jobs and jobs that I can do from anywhere. The notion of being my own boss, making my own hours and working from home is an appealing one.
But today, I started this blog. I want a place to document this great journey and (hopefully) see it unfold and come to fruition. Tomorrow is a day for finding new work…today is about celebrating the new dream.
Yesterday, however, was about living.
Mark and I woke up at around 8:30 and headed out to Runyon Canyon for a hike with friends. Despite the fact that I am anxious to leave Los Angeles, I cannot dispute the beauty that is to be found here in so many places.
Runyon Canyon is one of those places.
It was nice to get out and be active before going to work. It has a touch of that European lifestyle I desire….the thought that you can have a job and a life as well.
After the hike, the five of us had breakfast and just enjoyed the lovely day.
After work, many of us met up again to bid farewell to a wonderful friend (who is heading back home to Ohio). We had Late Night Happy Hour drinks at one of Sunset Strip’s best little bar’s, Cabo Cantina. 2 for 1 happy hour twice a day? Yes please!
If you are ever in Hollywood, make sure you check this place out. The drinks are affordable anyway, but half the time the little bar is open, it’s happy hour! And the food here is to die for.
Now it is time for a little bit of exercise (I am getting married in three months) and then off to the restaurant for another night of work.
