“How truly amazing is it that we find ourselves surrounded by friends that support not only the start of our theatre company, but our relationship in such a positive way?” Lexie and I have said the following phrase more times than I can count. There was a time that this wasn’t the case. Lately, I have been thinking of the shifts we go through in life. The people that we have to ask to “please exit stage left” so that we can create a more positive stage picture for ourselves and to make way for those waiting in the wings. Over the last couple of years, we have had to let certain people in our lives go. Not because we dislike these people. There are many people who I care about that (though I may not have realized it at the time) made me a more negative person.
In the beginning, all I wanted was to do good work- at least it's nice to think I did. Being so long ago, it is hard to look back and remember what my true motives were. However, if I had to venture a guess as to my truest motivations, it was most likely for recognition and fame. No one would want to admit that. “I wanted to be the best, and for people to tell me that I was the best.”
