Love Lezlie

I had it in my heart to move to Hollywood from a really young age. I don’t remember exactly how old I was, but I do remember An Actor’s Life from Pinocchio. Oh goodness, did that cartoon ruin me? I just listened to the words again as I started to write this post and I must say it’s disturbing. Anyway, it was set in my heart from an early age to be an entertainer so where else was I supposed to go? As soon as I graduated college with my BA in English, I packed my U-Haul with my dad and brother and have never really looked back. I remember that I told myself that I would give it a decade. I think someone told me when I first moved here that it takes 10 years to be an overnight success. Well, it’s been 7 years. And the truth is that I don’t really think it has to be that way because all it takes is 1 yes from God. I believe in God.

I will say that living here for 7 years has really shifted my perspective. I am super excited when I get an audition or the chance to have a big meeting. But my life no longer revolves around if I make it or not. I have really grown to care about the people in this city and appreciate the history as well. I don’t know how my story will end with Hollywood, but I am grateful that it has been in my heart for so long. I met my husband out here and many wonderful friends.

That was a rant from the heart. So, Kristine and I decided to hike to the infamous Hollywood sign the other day. But first we had to grab a bite at Beachwood Cafe. O-M-G (goodness) the oatmeal was amazing, so was the green smoothie. And I got a gift from KK, a dainty Love necklace that just so happened to match my yoga pants :D.

Do you still have a dream in your heart?

    Love this post! I think that when you take an inspired action only good things can come from it and you meeting your hubby and friends prove that. Where would you be if you hadn’t followed your heart? 🙂

    I have so many dreams in my heart from buying an apt in Rio to meeting a loving boyfriend. Dreaming is what make us happy, grateful and young and I was born a dreamer 😛
