"The harder I work, the luckier I get."
-- Samuel Goldwyn.
Tonight's blog finds me heavy with sleep... So, I am going to tempt all of your fertile minds with the coming attractions of some HUGE UPDATES in my life!!!
1. I met with a great team of lawyers today in Century City. I honestly had this: I've arrived feeling when I sat in the conference room with Jen and Jim and shared all of my about to break forth from the heavens updates with them... Big, big smile on my face... In the upper left hand corner is a picture of the great lawyer Kevin Yorn whose law firm met with me today!
2. And yesterday, I also got a great big juicy opportunity from my dear friend Ashton yesterday. (upper right hand corner -- in case you live in Guam!) And so, we shall see...
I have certainty that my life is flowing exactly as it is meant to.
I am grateful.
And in awe of it all.
Maktub in Arabic means: It is written.
And this is how I feel.
Plus, I am meeting the talent manager I found next Monday.
And so the quote goes, "The harder I work, the luckier I get."
I prepped for both opportunities -- fell asleep with a script in my hands -- like a child on Christmas night with her brand new toy...
Love to all of you blades out there -- working away, dreaming away, loving away...
If there is one thing I have found in common with absolutely all successful people -- it is that they work harder than anyone else.
And so -- I have been working my tail off.
And when this last stretch of the marathon ends, I shall head home toe the East Coast for a mini-holiday.
I shall celebrate, I shall sleep, I shall treat my friends and family to dinner -- as many as I can garner up. And I shall toast. To the girl from the small town in New Jersey who dreamt of being a movie star, a best-selling author and a millionaire.
And then... I'll laugh like I laughed when I was a little girl twirling around in the backyard because -- dreams really DO come true. And this young woman is proof.
