What does “Outside Myself” mean? Well, in my line of work there are so many times that people have an opinion about me or what I do whether it be positive or negative. And many times I make the mistake of taking those opinions in. When doing that what happens is I start to let those feelings of others shape my perception of myself and it changes me in one way or another. On top of that I am my worst critic. It is very rare that I am 100% satisfied with myself or my work so most times I am walking around with a weight on my shoulder that I just can’t shake.
That weight gets heavy and sometimes I have to stop and put it down for a moment and look at what it is that I am carrying around. “Outside Myself” is exactly that, putting down the weight that has been on my shoulder but not just one weight, all the weights. I am putting down every weight that has ever burdened me in my life, placing it in front of me and calling it out.
It is time for me to step outside of myself and acknowledge the pain, let it go and allow myself to leave it there and heal. I think everyone needs to do that at some point in their life. Just put it all out there and grow. I want a new story a more fulfilling one. One that I am in control of and the only way I can get that is by letting the old one go. I am very ready to do this show to let it go. My one expectation that I have for anyone who sees this is to be touched and hopefully they can be find healing in my story. This show is going to be life changing and career changing for me. I can’t wait to see what the next chapter of my life is after this.
