If you are reading this and you are not my mom or my grandma, it is likely you were directed here on Monday by a Facebook post by either Tiny House Blog or Tumbleweed Tiny House Company or a pingback (still not sure what that is) from Tiny House Talk. However you arrived here, thank you for your visit, I hope you like what I have to say and continue to check in on my blog on occasion.
Monday was a very exciting day for me. After years of appreciating tiny houses from afar, it felt amazing to be able to contribute something and feel included by the movement that encompasses my most passionate ideal. I was giddy with excitement and it must have shown because I went on an audition on Monday, and I got the part.
It’s not a big part, but it’s a big deal to me. Over the last few years, following my dreams has been an unforgiving exercise in futility. My agent even commented “you broke your streak!” excitedly through the phone. My lack of momentum had not gone unnoticed by him, but more importantly, it had weighed heavily on me.
But I’m thankful for all of it. A few tough years forced me to focus on what is really important to me. All I could think, (and still can) is how a tiny home would alleviate some of my financial ills and make pursing my passions a little less stressful. I never would have guessed that in a really weird circuitous way, that a tiny house would help me get a part, before I ever even lived in one!
A co-star on a pilot might not change my life, but the opportunity to be a part of something that is important to me, whether it be the tiny house movement, a new TV show, or learning about sustainability makes me really happy.
