First World Problems

(click on the image above to enlarge)

Pounding the pavement
Paying my dues
Past my prime

Pounding the pavement, starting over
Paying my dues, work my way from the bottom
Past my prime - what is age appropriate?

Pounding the pavement, auditions!
Paying my dues, willing to be in the ensemble, chorus
Past my prime - am I too old to be doing this?

Pounding the pavement, pounding my ego
Paying my dues, learning - again - to deal with rejection
Past my prime . . . when does this start to be too ridiculous?

Where do I draw the line?
(when do I come to my senses?)

And yet

I still have the passion to perform
Still I have the desire

Next audition

Oh, rejection, I know it well. Keep pounding the pavement--you are not past your prime. (And I love that you were reading about Nicole Kidman on the other tab.) :-)

Ha ha! I completely forgot to check all details in my eagerness to expose my vulnerability. ;-)
Thanks, Cheryl!
