Amazing is just about the last thing I want anyone to tell me. I’m nobody amazing. I’m just another actor, an ordinary guy trying to make it big by playing a guy on the TV that’s 6 ½ years younger than me while I live the life of someone who's pretending to be 25. I’m 33 and wondering where I’ll get my next gig when this one gets cancelled but I’ll still smile and turn my head back the other way when the photog’s yell at me. Because there’s nothing worse than seeing a bad picture of yourself in the Rags with a caption that reads “Grayson grim over ‘fill-in-the-blank’ while buying eggs.” Smile or not they’ll still give me a part to play out. Some weeks they pretend I’m upset because I didn’t get a part that I wasn’t even up for. Other weeks there’s another starlet whose heart I’ve eaten. Not that it matters, but I haven’t eaten anyone’s anything in about six months and there’s a lesbian sleeping in my guest room. And somehow buying groceries at Whole Foods is now a photo op. Now that’s amazing.

Amazing. I could give you something of advice tonight, but... well to speak frankly ms. m, is not feeling up to  wearing those "Dear Abby" shoes tonight. Alright a little bit, only because you're all so lovely.... 

You are amazing. Beautiful, handsome, smart, talented... etc. Pick a powerful word for yourself. You have the potential and you need to realize it... NOW. Anyone telling you different? That's a matter of perspective. Let nothing anyone says get you down. No one has the right to tell you who you are or how you need to live. You play the role of you in this life, nobody else. And that's the most beautiful way to live. People who are insecure need to feed on negativity by generating narrow-minded opinions. Their words are simply that... words.  Don't worry about their words. If you want to shine, then you will. Throw back that head, face the world with both eyes straight forward, shake a helluva lot of fierce [confidence] into your step and bring it! Now that... that's AMAZING! 

hope you had a great weekend! did you? kisses my loves. m.
