UnRepeatable Me/Unrepeatable You
So, this is as much for me as it is for you. You are unrepeatable. There is no one else like you in the entire world. You are unique and special, and you have something that nobody else has.
This has been one of those weeks where I needed to be reminded of that. Often times, especially at auditions, I can lose sight of that. I can prepare for an audition and feel confident and strong, but when I step into that room and see all of the other actors up for the same role, I am struck with self doubt. The Censor takes over and I start comparing myself to the others. I see someone younger, or older, or bigger or smaller, someone with long hair or short hair, straight or curly, and I start to think that I dont measure up. That I am all wrong and that I dont belong here.
But then the moment passes, and I remember that I am perfect, just the way I am. Nobody else can do what I do. Nobody else looks exactly like me, not even my twin sister. My voice is unique, and only I can sing my song. The quirky little things that we see as “flaws” are often the very things that make us so special.
I am hoping that tonite, you remember this too. 🙂
