Who Knew I Could Dance? & What Do I Do When I Feel Like Giving Up? - RN 020

"What winning is to me is not giving up. No matter what's thrown at me, I can take it. And I can keep going." - Patrick Swayze

Do you ever just feel like giving up?

Part 1: For the longest time I thought I couldn't dance. I warned everyone that they didn't want to see me try it. But my recent involvement in The Addams Family - The Musical has shown me that when i put my mind to it, I can do it.

Part 2: When we create something that needs an audience, we tend to overestimate how fast it will grow. Many times, this can lead to insecurity and a desire to just give up. Before you throw in the towel, do these three things to make sure you're not quitting your project before it's seen the top of its potential:

1. Pray / Meditate on it. Ask for guidance or seek introspect to figure out what it is that's making you feel this way. Many times it's simply a temporary emotional toll life has taken on you.

2. Remind yourself why you began your project in the first place. Was it to make money? Were you seeking popularity or fame? Or was the root of your engagement a love for whatever it is you are considering throwing to the curb?

3. Sleep on it. A good night's sleep (or several) can be a great refresher.

Going Gomez & My Son Has ADHD - RN 019

"I didn't outgrow ADHD. Did you?" - Adam Levine

Is ADHD a real thing?

My wife and I are involved in The Addams Family - The Musical at our local theatre. I talk about my transformation into the role of Gomez Addams.

My son has been professionally diagnosed as having a mild to moderate case of ADHD. We're not medicating, so helping him to learn to cope is a challenge, but one we feel will be good for him.
