Looking back it's pretty surreal. And a part of me misses it, but I knew that in order to follow another dream of mine (traveling and living abroad), I had to let that one go. I don't know if I'll ever get back onstage as a comic, but I will be onstage again. The feeling of having an audience in front of you, staring at you and hanging on your every word would make most people want to barf, but for me it was intoxicating. I loved the feeling of being able to use my words, my stories, to make people laugh. I hope to be able to do that again someday soon, but instead of telling self-deprecating jokes and drinking until I black out, I can do it to inspire women all over the world to follow their dreams no matter how out there they may be! And I'll be able to do it completely sober and fully present, a gift I gave to myself and now can share with the world.
I've had lots of dreams and have been lucky enough to follow most of them. Here are some fun pictures of me doing some cool stuff. What dreams have you been able to follow? I'd love to hear some of the cool things you've done.
I was an extra on a Bigfoot movie that was produced by the Sci-Fi Channel. I was a make-up artist for a talent agency in Seattle, doing hair and make-up for photo shoots and commercials. I traveled to Paris, Peru, and Germany, just to name a few countries I've been to. I'm currently in the Yoga Teacher Training program at Bliss Living Yoga in Grand Cayman.
