Sometimes You Just Have To Take That Leap Of Faith

You reach a point.  

In the acting business it’s never really about fame and fortune.  Even though what you see at the awards shows may make you believe otherwise.  But that’s only what’s on the surface.

Way before an actor reaches the point of being nominated for an award, or even on the list of possible nominees, there is a lot of hard work, tears, and challenges that lead up to that time.

And so what needs to happen is that you simply have to take that leap of faith, dive in to the deep end if you must, and feel good about yourself.  That’s not easy at all, and probably why lots of people consider acting and either don’t stay with it or never really take that chance.

It’s all about what you feel.  

Surely.  Passion has everything to do with it.  The fire in your soul has to burn bright before you consider taking that leap.  And, for me, there’s only one answer to that calling – and it’s “yes”!

Keep smiling. Keep believing.

How to stay with it.  

Pure heart is all.  It’s like a marathon runner hitting that 20 mile wall.  You’re running on fumes it seems and you begin to wonder if you will ever see that finish line.  But the ribbon is there.  Bright blue and shining in the sun.  And you can see yourself running through it and feel the joy of that experience.

That’s just how it is when you follow your dream.  Staying with it is never a question for you.  It just comes naturally.

Belief in a Higher Authority.  

For this lady, I am totally convinced that Heaven finds a way to let us know when something is right. We feel it and it causes some great changes for us. Those changes may not be easy, as with acting it certainly is not, but, you make them anyway.  Because you couldn’t imagine living life any other way.

Best wishes to everyone! 

Once again, know how much I appreciate all the beautiful feedback I get from everyone who follows my work.  It makes a wonderful difference!

Building My YouTube Channel This Year

AT LAST!

I began publishing videos on YouTube in 2015-16, but I didn’t add very many.  I’ve got lots of other things going on and so it was difficult to create a regular day/time to film.

But, that’s at last resolved for me – and I’m so happy to tell you about it!  I’ll be starting to publish my video content on the Nancy Welker YouTube Channel either this weekend, or next week, depending on my voice.  I’ve had the flu and as of now I’m not able to talk without sounding hoarse and coughing like crazy so I have to give it a few days before I begin.

However, that downtime is giving me the chance to begin organizing everything else on my list and putting together a schedule I enjoy keeping.  That’s my approach to my work.  ENJOY IT!  When you do that, you don’t mind burning the midnight oil when you need to and that’s the ticket to success I have found.

FIRST 

My first videos will include chats about me, and my reasons for pursuing acting (and modeling for that matter) now.  I want to tell others about my life as they may also find themselves in similar situations.  Many of us had a dream when we were 18 or 20.  Life got in the way.  Is it too late at 40 or 50 or 60 to go after that dream?  Of course it is not!  And that’s the message I want to send to everyone who comes to my channel.

NEXT 

I’ll be making a variety of videos.  I’ve been a YouTube fan for a long time and I know what other channels are creating, and so I want to publish what viewers like to see.  I’ll make videos giving unbiased product reviews of many kinds – from fitness to beauty to cooking and also TV shows and movies.

This project is so special to me and I’m really looking forward to building community on YouTube, and continuing to build community on Facebook and WordPress.

SHARING 

Of course I will be posting links to my video content on social media as well!

FINALLY 

I’ll be going live on Facebook as often as I can. I hope to see all of you there when I do!

I am honored by the number of people who like and follow me on WordPress, Twitter, YouTube – and by the 57K likes I have on Facebook!!

Look for my videos by this weekend!
