Sidenote (1)

I am exceedingly happy with having started a blog 2 weeks ago. I feel at peace within myself, getting my inner most thoughts out and actually having people agree or relate or even just enjoy the writing. It feels great! I have never had anyone read my writings before, I was just always too insecure to share.

A big thank you to the people that take their time to read 🙂 I know I create a different character for each post, but they are in fact me and the things I think about daily. Speaking them has always kind of gotten me into trouble. People are just waiting to squash you with their rebuttal opinions, so lately I’ve just decided to shut up and write it down instead. I feel strongly about the world we live in. There is so much that is greater than me and my existence. Don’t you ever just get that overwhelming feeling of wanting to change or at least help someone in this world, but you don’t know where to start?

Stay tuned and stay woke.

Sincerely yours,

Actress In Reality

  1. Actress,

    You asked, “Don’t you ever just get that overwhelming feeling of wanting to change or at least help someone in this world, but you don’t know where to start?”

    That feeling has periodically plagued me for years. I have plenty of ideas about where to start and have even implemented a few of those ideas for brief periods. The greatest barrier I face to effecting change or offering help is insularity. I am so focused on providing for my immediate, and to a slightly lesser degree my extended, family and our future.

    Often, and to my regret, I find myself using my free time to escape rather than for more constructive pursuits.

    Take care, be well, and happy blogging!

    1. Hi Denny 👋🏽

      I know exactly where you’re coming from! I feel like I can discuss this topic to death but actually getting to work and doing something about it is a whole ‘nother ball of wax.

      I myself help out in animal shelters often. It’s something that is close to my heart, but also it’s the easiest way to help out given my lifestyle.

      I do research the bigger organizations that travel to problem areas in the world and actually aid in saving lives. That is something I would like to aspire to someday.

      Selfishly I think my dreams and fears get in the way. It definitely is a dream of mine to work for UNICEF or Greenpeace, but the little girl in me is still working on that big break in the theater that she’s longed for since she was 8.

      Stay tuned and stay woke!

      Sincerely,

      Actress

  2. My Dear Actress,

    As one of the newer and more like-minded creators among the Bloggers I follow, I value your input on the short-short story “Morning Flight” that I posted in response to WordPress’s 7/21/17 Daily Post prompt “Gate”.

    I know you’re busy and your time is precious, but please take a few minutes to peruse my brief post and offer feedback. It’s the first piece of completed fiction I’ve managed to produce in over 20 years. You can find it at:

    Thank you very much. Take care, be well, and happy dreaming,

    Denny
