The good with the bad. Yep, this month happiness is the good stuff that counter-acts the bad. It’s been a crazy few weeks with some devastating things and some amazing things. Life works in mysterious ways.
I remember when I shot my first big national commercial. My mom was in the hospital, but I was able to tell her all about it. About a week later, she died and the same day I got the check for that commercial. It covered my airfare home for the funeral and also happened to be the biggest check I’d ever received for acting work. I couldn’t help but feel that she was looking down on me. Then, on the day of her funeral, I got a call telling me that the commercial was going to be a series and I would be shooting more in the future. Again, I couldn’t help but feel my mom had something to do with it.
Well, it’s over 17 years later and my dad is gone. It’s only been 2 weeks, but something awesome has happened in my writing career, and again, I have to look at the timing and think my dad and my mom both are watching over me, sending me the good stuff to counter the bad.
I’m happy to report that I’ve found literary representation for my young adult novel! It’s taken a long time to find an agent who loves this book as much as I do so I’m thrilled! I promise to shout any news from the rooftops as soon as I can. But in the meantime, happiness is moving forward.
How about you? Any good with the bad stories you can share?
